I'm looking to get a full size cataraft and wanted to get some advice on what brand, model, and size are best suited for my needs. I plan on doing day trips and/or short overnight trips on the Kenai, Kasilof, Little Su, and Gulkana. Also, I want to do some extended float hunts for moose and caribou. For the day trips, I would probably have two to four people (included myself) and for the float hunts, I would probably have myself and one other person.
So far, I have been looking at the AIRE cougar, lion, and leopard. I have talked to several people regarding draft on the single tube cats in comparison to the double tube (quad tube) design as seen on the cougar. Does the cougar draft a lot less water than the lion or similar models?
Any advice would be helpful. Thanks!
