FrostBack I did a search and didn't find anything on the windows or no complaints on them. Where did u find them? I would like to read them. So far my clam has been great but would like to know if there r issues. Thanks

The difference between an 8" hole and a 10" hole is.....a 10" hole will usually give you your boot back!

In the food chain of life...its not good to be referred to as: "a good eating size".

I have a 949i and love it. you will not go wrong- You can fish 4 guys out of it- Yeah it would be tight but you could do it.. 3 is a piece of cake.. I'm sure whatever you get you will be happy...

I am hoping to buy a 949i tomorrow morning for black friday at $200. I need a cheap portable shack that can fish 3-4 and sets up easily. Hopefully this one will work for me.

BZ- I heat my 949I with a Mr. Heater Hunting Buddy Heater on low and I can sit in there all day long in just a long sleeve shirt even with it 0 to -20 with no wind of course, the Hunting buddy is inbetween the Buddy Heater and the Big Buddy Heater.. I would not go smaller than the Hunting Buddy Heater and most you will hear from really like the Big Buddy Heater..

Had 6 guys and 2 ladies in my 949 last year.  No jigging, sitting elbow to elbow in camping chairs with the girls on their guys laps, keg in the middle and propane heater in the corner.  Sardine can, but everyone stayed warm.  Im pretty sure the "4 person" space is intended as jigging use.

I have a new 949i and the first time out a few weeks ago it was me and the gf in about 20*f with 10-15mph wind using the small regular buddy heater on high used a 1 lb bottle in 5 hours but it kept it 60* or so inside. Was pretty good in my opinion.
