I'm in need of a one person cataraft. All those gravel bars on the Kenai that can not be waded to are driving me crazy. So, for one person, day trips, probably used 10 times a year, what do you think of the fishcat cougar?
My biggest concern is reliability. It has sewn seams and vinyl tubes, but the price- 550 at sportsmans warehouse, 600 at ak raft, is really attractive. Plus, it is here in town and does not need shipped.
Anybody have one and like to comment? Any problems? Any punctures? I would probably try Willow, and maybe Montana, too. Think it would handle the occasional bump into rocks or logs?
If I really need to spend more money I could always break the piggy bank and go up a little, but I'd sure prefer not to. Although I did really like those Dave Scadden boats at the show this spring.
