My Ultimate 12 Tegris is still going strong with ten years of almost constant use on the rivers of SW Montana. Two to three times a week from March thru November, the boat accompanies me as I fish upstream for Brown, Rainbow and Cutthroat trout in SW Montana's big rivers--Yellowstone, Madison, Big Hole and Beaverhead.
It is a tough boat. It gets dragged over a lot of shallow riffle water every trip. It is too bad they don't make them like they used to.
