New to the forum. Look forward to contributing this year. Have an offer someone here may be interested in.
Long story short I moved here three years ago, bougt a fly rod, and caught my first big bow in SEP 2011. Been downhill ever since. Buying my first raft this winter for next season. I have over 40 days vacation saved up, and my father is coming to the state (with my two younger brothers) to help me spend them fishing. On paper its going to be the summer of a lifetime.
Downside is that I am transferring out of state for good in July. I've looked into some different options, mostly rentals, but decided it will be worth having our own boat. I plan to fish nearly every one of the those 40 days.
I am going with an Aire Super Puma. I will be on the Parks highway streams in early June until the Upper Kenai opens. Mostly day trips with a 2-3 passengers. Possibly a multi-day interior float with a light load. I think this raft fits us best.
If you are interested in the same raft, it will be up for sale after July 4th weekend and the whole package will need to go for $1000 less than whatever I paid for it. You essentially get a brand new boat with all the bells and whistles minus 40 days on a 10 yr warranty.
I would be willing to negotiate the frame and oar specifics to meet both our needs. You also might be able to talk me into a SD Puma. Apologize if this isnt in the right place for this post.
