The amazing world of inflatable floating chairs

There is a category of boat that is unlike any ordinary model of watercraft. These are not just boats, this is a separate club, with its own history and names that will surprise even experienced fishermen. Welcome to the world of inflatable float board boats: the Belly Boat (“boat on the belly”), the Float Tube, or the floating horseshoe, the floating chair, or simply the Float board boat.

The main purpose of these boats is fishing. The fisherman, located at the level of the water surface, feels an unprecedented closeness to nature. An inflatable fishing boat is easy to move, steer, and even hold in place while fishing – often with the help of legs or fins. And some models are equipped with oars or even motors. There are special places on board for fishing rods, bags and necessary equipment, and the use of thermal clothing and waders is mandatory.

A bit of history

Inflatable float board boats appeared quite a long time ago, for the first time they were used as an individual means of overcoming water obstacles during the First World War. Later, these boats lost their popularity, but now they are gaining recognition again, this time as an ideal fishing tool. Today, they are popular, especially in Europe, where there are even fishing competitions using them.

There are several types of float board boats:

● ROUND (round): The classic “belly bot” with a circle shape that resembles a lifebuoy. The fisherman is in the water at waist level, “hanging” like a float.

● U-BOAT (like the letter “U”): The most comfortable type, similar to a floating chair with the shape of the letter “U”, where the angler sits with his feet in the water.

● V-BOAT (like the letter “V”): This belly boat has a pointed nose, which makes it easier to move compared to other models.

● Catamaran: This is already a “floating pipe” Float Tube, they differ in their construction, the ability to stand in their cockpit on their feet and their relatively high cost.

Features and benefits

The main features of the Belly Boat are the size of the boat and the location of the passenger. The size is the minimum possible for the maintenance of one person with a rather limited set of equipment. The position of the passenger is immersion in water up to the waist, or only the legs.

The advantages of float board boats are their extremely low weight and compactness, practically silent operation, and most importantly, the unique possibility of fishing at the level of the water surface. No other type of boat provides such an opportunity.
