Hi Guys, need some help on choosing a raft. Spent alot of time looking here on the forum and the internet in general, but still no luck helping me reach a decision. So I am after a 13' raft to be used for fishing. Most of the time it would be just 2 people on the raft, and then on trips with gear for up to 7 days. Will be used for local stuff and flyouts in the state. Am limited on how much I can spend, so have narrowed it down to an Aire Tributary or NRS Otter. Fully aware of the issues between the two rafts on construction techniques and raft material, patching.... Am more into smaller waters that are more technical and not big waters that push. So I guess which one rows better is my main question, not just when running rapids, but functioning more like a drift boat. Also which one rows better when heavily loaded. Oh yea, and it will have a rowing frame on it.
I have had a Aire Puma in the past and currently have a Aire Traveler with a tricked out rowing frame and stern motor mount, that has been all over the state, so I know about Aire's construction.
Thanks in advance.
