I've done some searching on this site relating to this topic. From what I have found, I've realized there is no raft that will do it all. One needs to determine what he/she is going to do primarily and then go from there.
If I wanted to carry two hunters, one moose, and 250 pounds of gear for a ten day hunt. Which boat will do this on class I-II rivers?
I want to be able to pack the raft on my back if I had to (not too far).
SOAR Pro Pioneer
NRS 14' River Cat
AIRE 16' Lion
I neglected to put a 14' Otter on here, even though I have used them before. I can't afford one right now, and they are heavier than the boats listed (if you break them down). If I go with either of the cats, I'd buy the pontoons now, and my brother will fab the frame for us this winter.
Thanks for the help
