They were the same as the present day Grizzly in size and shape, weighed in at 15lbs. Only in production for 1-2 years[5-7 years ago]. Either the owner or Production Manager[at that time] felt they were more of a lake raft. How'd they make them so light? Used polyurethane instead of vinyl in the 'sandwich', which is what the Abel/EXP/WS uses....except they used an even lighter polyester fabric than the aforementioned, probably why they didn't recommend them for rivers. BTW, did you get those photos?
Yes, I got the photos. It was very interesting on the ways you customized it. I think I will go with the Wm Kodiak because of the size difference. I will be in Dillon Looking at Um western this summer and I am going to go through Missoula and look at Um too, so I will swing by the factory there, and the water strider factory in hamilton. Now I just need $1300
