Picking up cuties is easy when you have a super cool boat! Bang Boat puts a spin on the tired old street pickup reality porn scene by taking the action to the water! This semi-exclusive site offers a large collection of videos and photos of amateur babes in hardcore action on a boat and includes free access to tons more smut in the included bonus package of sites and feeds.
Although it doesn't quite live up to its own claims from the tour pages, the collection for Bang Boat is a decent size at 90 scenes. The bad news, however, is that the site is no longer updating and only a tiny portion of the overall collection is available for download. Most of what you'll see here a Bang Boat is streaming only, older, and below average in quality when compared to new release net porn these days. Although these scenes do seem to have been filmed specifically for the Bang Boat collection, it looks like most or all of the materials here are offered to third-party sites as plug-in feeds.
Aside from the fact that the model scouting takes place on boat docks and riverbanks instead of on the street, these Bang Boat scenes pretty much follow the standard reality porn pickup formula. They ride around in a boat, look for hot girls, and then do whatever it takes to talk them into getting on the boat, getting naked, and fucking. Due to the innate seductive powers of a boat, they never strike out! Many of the babes here are amateur and unknown to me, but you may recognize a few familiar faces like Velicity Von, Venus, and Cherry Poppins.
As I mentioned, the majority of the video scenes here are not available for download. 79 of the total 90 scenes available in the members area are available for streaming only at just 320 x 240 pixels, 500 kbps. The built-in streaming video player only allows you to watch the videos at their normal tiny size or at full screen with no size options in between, and enlarging these to full screen makes them far too blurry and grainy for my taste. Around 40 or 50 of the scenes come with a set of 800x600 pixel, good quality digital photos while the rest include some blurry, low-quality screen capture images taken from the video.
Bang Boat has a somewhat older looking blue and orange tour with plenty of preview images and tons of streaming video trailers, but as usual what's missing are hard facts. Even worse, the hard facts that are here aren't always accurate. The members area is 10 scenes short of the 100 Bang Boat updates mentioned on the tour, and updates are definitely not coming weekly as promised. Additionally, only about 1/10 of the Bang Boat collection even comes close to living up to the claims of "high-resolution" episodes.
The blue and orange color scheme continues in the members area, but luckily things look a little better once you're inside the site. Logging into the site gives you access to the Bang Boat collection as well as all of the included bonus sites and feeds. Although this isn't the most advanced members' area I visited, it gets the job done with a good balance of features and ease of use. Except for the "bonus network" button on the main navigation menu which leads to third-party ads, everything else is pretty self-explanatory. A search tool allows you to search for keywords and pornstar names.
To access the Bang Boat collection, click on the link just below the most recent update on the main page. The 90 scenes span across eight pages and the few scenes which are downloadable and offered at the highest quality level are clearly marked. Those which are offered for download are available in WMV for download or streaming and Flash for streaming only. Flash streaming is unfortunately not an option for the streaming-only scenes. These are offered only in WMV and MOV formats for streaming in a few different quality levels. Photo galleries are located on the same page as the video download and streaming links. You can view the photos in thumbnail galleries or download them in ZIP files.
In the end, I can't say that I was particularly impressed by Bang Boat. The slight discrepancy between the claimed the actual size of the site isn't really a dealbreaker, but the low quality, streaming-only videos and high price of nearly $40 per month just might be. Make sure that you were going to be OK with the streaming-only flicks and check out the bonus collection thoroughly before spending your cash on this one!
