Looking to purchase a raft that will accomodate 2 people on 7-10 trips in western and Brooks Range rivers. It would be used mostly for fishing, with an occasional hunting trip. Non- commercial. It must roll up easily for fly-in trips. Budget not a problem, but weight is. Here is my theory, please weigh in.
NRS Otter 140 - lightweight, rolls up easily, storage no problem, Will it hold up to rocky, shallow rivers?
Aire 143D - great 10 yr warranty, too heavy at 143 lbs.
Sotar ST14 - lightweight, very durable, rolls up poorly, inflated storage a problem. Just how difficult is it to roll these up for fly-in trips?
Can it be stored, rolled up, in a garage?
