Description
Sveriges Funktionshindrades Frilufts och Fiskeförening, (Sweden Recreation and Fishing Association for People with Disabilities, SFFF), sverigesfff.se/det-har-ar-sfff/ (only in Swedish) owns an accessible boat, see related tip, with equipment that makes it easier for wheelchair users. The boat is equipped with fishing rod and equipment for trolling. The stern railing is low; the bow ramp can be partially lowered, making it easier for wheelchair users to fish with a fishing rod (last checked June 2017).
