After a long day adventuring on the water it would be nice to have an easy way to transport your Rover back to your vehicle or storage area. Enter the Wheel Rac. Easily slip the Wheel Rac into the hull receivers and rock & roll. With the oversized balloon tires, the Rover will glide over almost any terrain with minimal effort.

SWEET SPOT

When under power, the Rover is designed to lift the nose out of the water which provides a smoother ride and tighter turning. Use a tiller extension to stand up while you run giving you a top down view of your surroundings and leave the back deck open for plenty of room to move around while you fish.

SWEET SPOT

NEED HELP DECIDING?

We've run a lot of motors on the Rover and charted typical performance below. Remember that on-water performance is different for every combination of motor, Rover, load weight, load placement, and wave action.

LIKE BUTTER

With the motor trimmed up, Rover will float in 3” of water with 220lb load (Person, Gear, and Motor). You can access places no regular boat would dare venture. While paddling, the Rover lies down flat and allows the Deep-V nose to do it’s thing, carve through the water with silent efficiency.

SANDSPEAR

SANDSPEAR

The foot end of our optional Sandspear shallow water anchor is the perfect push pole getting you silently through the even the most shallow waterways without making a peep. And when you’re in position, drive the spike end into the bottom and tie off to it to hold position while you cast. When not in use, wedge the Sandspear between the Vertebrae rail attachments.

The Sandspear also works with the optional Power-Pole Micro Anchor. Sandspear sold separately.

BOTE Rover - Duck Hunting GAME CHANGER!

The BOTE Rover has changed duck hunting forever! Clearly had to turn the white/teal Rover into something a bit less obvious, so after a quick camo job, it began to blend right in. I live and hunt on the Puget Sound, so always dealing with tides, which can be a terrible burden, even in my 17' Jet Boat that I bought specifically for hunting shallow tidal areas. Hunting alone, as I often do, really requires one's full attention, so you don't return to your vessel stuck hi-n-dry on the mud.........been there, done that! In my efforts to find a small vessel that I could personally move without help, I stumbled upon the BOTE Rover, and am I glad I did! I didn't want a kayak, as they're hard to shoot from and take too long to get to/from the blind, and though I was intrigued, I really didn't want to risk going for a swim using a traditional SUP. As soon as I learned about the Rover, it all came together immediately - benefits of a SUP, with the power/speed of a Jon Boat - PERFECT! After more than a dozen hunts, I have my Jet Boat for sale, and I never thought I'd give that thing up! Loaded down with decoys, 2 adult men, guns, ammo, gear, well over the 500lb capacity and we were still cruising at 9 mph with a Merc 6hp - blown away! Solo with light gear, I've managed about 16 mph. I'll certainly be upgrading to the 9.9hp sometime in the near future. If there was one thing I'd love to know - why not make these in a rotomolded polyethylene material, or something similar? I surf too, so fiberglass repair is something I know, but I HATE it! Hitting reef n pavement has created some extra work for me lately, so just curious where glass comes in over materials found in kayaks. A totally profound experience thus far - Thanks BOTE!

Products and service are TOP NOTCH

Bought my classic late 2018 and absolutely loved it. Super shallow, super durable, SUPER STABLE and let's face its frkn sexy af. In between then and now, anything I contacted Bote about was handled quick and accurately. When I first ordered it it was delivered WAY faster than I expected to the local freight company and was able to contact bote to get me lined up to receive my rover at the fedex location, they went above an beyond to make that happen. I once called to get dimensions while I was at the hardware store and Chris put me on hold while he himself went measure what I needed. Today I was washing my rover and noticed laminations in a few places, so I took pics and called Katy with customer support and let me start by saying SHE IS ON HER S***. I explained my concern she shot me an email requesting the photos. From there she contacted their bote building "guru" and he requested a video of the area so he can verify there was no obvious mishandling damage (completely understandable) once he reviewed the video Ms. Katy called me back and gave me the option to to keep my board and get a new one at half cost, or be sent a replacement free of charge and split shipping cost to send the old board back (understandable and very reasonable). I chose to send them my old board and split the shipping cost. Before we hung up I told her when I ordered my first board I didnt realize I had ordered the "clasic" color and asked if it would be possible to get the new color scheme bug slinger. Again NOT A PROBLEM was what I was told by Ms Katy. She in no way shape or form had to do that, but she stands by keeping Bote customers satisfied. At the end of our conversation I looked at the phone and she had all this accomplished in 2 FRKKN HOURS, IVE WAITED LONGER FOR UBER EATS !!! Bottom line is Bote not only stands by their products but they stand with their customers. Bote has a lifetime customer out of me and anyone I can persuade to buy their products.

Bug slinger

I have had my bug slinger now for a little over a year and I am incredibly impressed with its handling whether you’re standing or sitting and the fact that I can creep in to water less than a foot deep is a major plus. And with the motor up or down I can stand on either side and it’s not tippy and I can stand on the front and paddle with the greatest of ease. Oh yeah and don’t forget you can surf it like a powered surfboard.. Lots of fun ....I give this one five stars Thank you Bote For another great board
