I dont use a hobie myself and if I did the PA wouldn't be on my list they do have good and bad points

I think they are big and heavy which and a great on the water they are very popilar with the bream fishos - not so good if you need to travel the same direction as the waves in open water or open bays
the PA will not track in these conditions and will turn side on real quick

most of the time you will need a good boat ramp or an easy access beach even with good sand wheels these heavy boats are hard work on land

so it depends on what fishing you do and the areas you fish if it's a good choice

I think a trailer is easier with these big boats but then I now use a trailer for my Wavedance kingfisher and thats on a light paddling craft about the same weight as your Bigfish
