Portable Folding Boat = Porta Bote

  • On July 17, 2013

First learned about folding boats back on January 22 as I was researching about folding bikes (Brompton) and finally had the funds to purchase a used 2006 Porta Bote. It’s going to fit perfect on the roof racks of the Mini Cooper.

Q: How did we find this Porta Bote?

Craigslist – San Diego, CA

Q: How big is this Porta Bote?

12ft. | 4 persons | Max. Capacity of 570lbs

Q: Did the Porta Bote come with any accessories?

The owner was including the Porta Dolly and his folding/lock oars.

Q: Our RV Trip doesn’t start until the end of October, how do we get the Porta Bote?

The owner was kind enough to keep it stored in his garage until we’re able to pick it up in November on scheduled short visit to San Diego.

Can’t wait to explore places like the Ocala National Forest in Florida to see Manatees up close!!
