Stopped by Alaska Raft & Kayak today, to check out the latest developements in the Aire line of rafts, prior to the upcoming Sportsman's Show. It was nice to talk rafting at a relaxed pace without all the GASS crowds. Anyway, I noticed a SOAR poster up on the wall, and an inflated Pro Pioneer in the back room, so I asked the obvious question. Turns out that AR&K has very recently started representing SOAR products. They are also listing PP's on their new 2012 rental sheet. Nothing on their website yet, it just happened. That's the latest scoop!
A few questions for all you SOAR Pro Pioneer owners out there:
Has anyone ever removed the glued flaps from the corners of their PP's floor, in order to convert it into a self-bailer?
If yes, How did it work out? Have you left it that way? Or glued the flaps back over those factory made holes?
