Had a couple of you guys ask me about the raft I used this year for our float hunt if I rented it and or had it made.
The raft is a Sotar Radical and I had it made .
I would like to give a big thank you to Goo Vogt at Alaska Wild Waters and Cheryl at the Sotar Factory for helping me all the way through in getting this raft made and into my hands .
They both worked hard in answering all my questions about having this made and Cheryl would send me updates as the raft was being put together with pictures.
The raft is not a full width raft it is a narrow raft at 63" outside width and 16'6'' long .Made for heavy loads ,shallow water and back woods skinny water .
I went with yellow and red for safety reasons just in case I got hurt .My wife is my hunt partner and if I or she needed help for any reason the rescue could see us a long ways off otherwise I would of went with Purple or Black .
The red strips on the top and bottom is Liquid Lex and is a Chaff material .Goo said I did not need it but I went with it anyway as this will more than likely be the last raft I buy for a very long time and just wanted the extra thickness in the rub areas .
Goo also made the break down Aluminum frame so I could stuff it in the float planes , great job in building it.
The raft preformed as I thought it would . I really like this raft and I also Like that it is US Made .
Here are a couple pictures of it from the factory as it was being made and a few more of it at our house.
Thanks again Goo for a great raft.
