    appreciate your opinion,

    There's no practical way to maneuver that boat with one paddle. Two oars or at least two paddlers are going to be needed.

    You'd have to have a much narrower boat to use one paddle. Check out the gear page here for a little more discussion on round boats and their alternatives.

      No. You need the NRS Longhorn frame, oar stands, and oars for this boat. If you plan to carry a passenger, get an extra crossbar with a seat plate on it and a Fish-On swivel seat.

        Thanks again guys (Tinkerer and Mike). I should have known that. Getting really excited by the day soaking up as much info as I can on an inflatable for our moose float hunt this year. I will keep you posed on what we go with. Oh, just noticed Fairbanks was a nice 26 degrees. It was -8 when I came to work this morning.

          Wondering how folks are liking (or not) their Foragers.
          It's on my radar for a plane-packable, then backpackable boat for me, 2-3 nights worth of gear and my 85 lbs dog to make way down/across Class II rivers, lakes, etc during fly fishing & camping trips.

            I still like it. Haven't pushed it hard but it's been a great boat for the type of trips you are talking about. It does handle two big guys and their gear very well. The Cargo Fly is a great feature.
