If a panga style boat has a console with a steering wheel would that technically not be considered a panga?The difference is price plus the placement of the "Steering Wheel". Traditional pangas have a tiller motor. CC has a "steering wheel"... You can make tighter turns with a tiller. Boat weighs a lot less with a tiller. Easier to trailer and launch. Way less maintenence.
It's the hull design/shape that designates it a Panga.If a panga style boat has a console with a steering wheel would that technically not be considered a panga?
I don't mean to be annoying with my questions it's just that I hear the word panga thrown around quite a bit and I'm just trying to understand exactly what they are talking about...thanks
pangas were designed to be used with oars. The design has never changed.
pangas are great, until you own one and want to go offshore or a south wind.
a good 21 CC console, Grady, Wellcraft or Parker will outperform a 26foot panga... unless you are on the sea of cortez in flat clam water
I love pangas when I rent them, just don't own one unless you plan on staying 3 miles offshore.
The fact that you can run a 32foot boat with a single 300 outboard, proves my point.
