To me, the real advantage of this boat is the stability. I can stand up and fly fish. I have a kayak for fishing but since I really love the long rod, I always found it difficult to sight fish sitting so low to the water. Couple that with the fact I don't have to paddle and the Gheenoe really opens up a lot of water for me to fish. I've made a few modifications to mine which are all pretty simple, but there are guys out there who have made this little boats into pretty fancy skiffs.
