Congrats on the new boats! I'm sure you'll love them. You pretty much can't go wrong with a Hobie!

thanks for all the advice and info. I went out and tested all 3 today. I ended up buying the PA and the outback. When I was going I thought I was gonna get a PA and a revo but, I thought the OB was a little more stable and a bit better fit for me. I didn't get to test them out in really skinny water as we have in the marsh here in LA so I hope I am not disappointed. I upgraded to the turbo fins on the OA.
Hope it all works out. thanks again for the advice and pictures.


You went the same route as me a PA and a Outback.

Thank y'all for the answers. Still not sure which one to buy but leaning toward the PA. Do any of u transport PA's in the bed of a pick up truck? Any issues there?



I transport my PA in the bed of my truck with a bed extender.

I just got my PA this year and my buddy got the Outback. He loves his outback but he consistently tells me he should have got the PA until we go to this one lake where we have a 1/2 mile hike down a gravel road before hitting the water. then he says he is glad he got the Outback but on the water he changes his mind again.

Congrats !

I think you will be happy with your choice for a long time to come. I have owned all 3 for a while and the PA is my boat. The Outback and Revo had their places in my heart at different times, but when real life bit me in the butt and It came time to reduce the fleet to just one last to fall,,,, I kept the P.A. and sold the others. The outback came in a very close second based on ease of hauling and still being a great fishing platform.. They are great little boats.

Welcome to the group.
