Hi, I am new to the forum.
Trying to find the best cat to fit my needs... Want to use for day fishing 4-5 people. Weekend (2-4 day) fishing/ camping/ 2-3 people. Also want to build up to (pretty much a beg..) running rapids. Been looking at the 14 ft rivercat, but sounds like this is not the right cat for shooting rapids. Probably only will use motor as a kicker. I thought I wanted to go with a smaller raft as last fall I rented the 16 ft nrs river cat and seemed a bit of an overkill. The 14 ft river cat seemed to give me plenty of options to carry more weight than the ocelet. Any thoughts... Also, are dogs a problem as far as claws on the raft?
