Joe Demalderis is the guide selling a 3-man Scadden with all the extras too. Not sure if the trailer is included. Find him at flyfishthedelaware.com

Nope, I just know happen to remember that Joe is selling a Scadden and that's his site. As of today, the boat is still available too.

Anyone know how a Bucks Bags Extreme model stands up to the Scadden's and Outcasts?

Those scanden's, could they be used in the surf? Would be nice for low tide launch off LBI beach on vacation.

I'd call Northfork and ask if the boats are saltwater friendly.

I can't see why they would not be saltwater friendly. Aluminum and PVC fair pretty well in saltwater.

I believe Scadden shipped mine for $40, though actual cost was $80 I believe. There is quite a bit of margin in those things. Buying at Cabelas and having shipped to Cabelas for free pick up presents a couple of issues IMHO. First, you will be charged $60 tax versus no tax from Scadden. Second, the frame that Scadden sells is allegedly an improved model that Cabelas would not switch over to because they were happy with sales/profit of the current model. Warning: Dave Scadden will do everything in his power to make you happy with your purchase and is a super nice guy, however sometime they are very busy and a bit on the unorganized side. Sight, his buddy and I all ordered the exact same boat around the same time and we all have different "features". Not to mention it took about a month for me to get mine, though I was personally told it was "going on the truck" the following day and it is 5 days UPS ground from west coast.

Regarding the Colorado XT, skip it. That was my first boat. After the first the steel frame rusted so bad that it required sanding to get it back together. I would imagine this would be a problem with about any steel frame. Aluminum frame all the way and no fabric toon covers! I have witnessed both being problematic first hand.

Saltwater may void warranty. That's the point I was making.

I know Dave is a good salesman but I didn't see any difference in the boat at Cabelas vs. the one that came directly from Northfork.

Good point on the warranty though I don't see a disclaimer on it. Best to call.

Remember my previous post in another thread? "Laser locking frame . . . whatever the hell that is"? LOL.

As long as it's aluminum I am good.

A yak would be better in the salt, lots of currents to contend with and a pontoon would have limits on that. rips are bad off of the beaches too.

That's kinda what I figured. Don't really have the room for a kayak tho. I thought I heard someone using it in Barnegat Bay. The waves can be worse there at times than the surf.

Barnegut bay has some very nasty flows at times, I know of a guy you went out the inlet cause he could not fight currents with a canoe, had to be recued.

Going down there for vacation in Sept. Man, do I need a vacation. Got so much work to do both at work and home, haven't really taken any vacation yet this year, just one day.

I was thinking of getting a salt fly fishing outfit. Since only really down there once a year, kinda not worth it. Do want to try it, I would love to outfish my brother-in-law with flies. I do use the mullet surf rig. I usually catch blues, which I am out for and release them. Run a mullet rig with one rod, other usually throw a plug or something else.
