Built of durable RAM-X, the Pelican Gator is pre-wired to install an electric motor and/or device. It features built-in motor mounts at the bow and stern, two padded folding and swiveling seats, two vertical rod holders, oarlock receptacles, and carrying handles.

Though difficult to find in stores, the Gator has many handy features for comfortable fishing. But Jon boat connoisseurs tsk-tsk the plastic hull in favor of heavier, but more durable, aluminum. If you want a comfortable, temporary Jon boat, the Gator may be appropriate. But if you want something that will outlive you, go with an aluminum watercraft.
