Don’t buy from outdoor play. I used to work there and the owner is a sleezebag.
Thanks Yard Sale!
If you buy directly through Aire, you have the option of specifying which floor type you want: http://www.aire.com/content/aire-floor-system.asp
Beginning in 2017, Aire started using a new fabric that’s supposed to be just as tough, but lighter: http://www.aire.com/content/aire-2017-materials-update.asp
I’m not positive, but you might also be able to customize the number of d-rings and handles. If you aren’t going to have to portage much, consider eliminating handles as fly lines tend to catch on them.
I’ll defer to Capn Chicken Man since he owns one.
Another great source for custom raft frames is:

They’ve had some website problems recently - looks like it’s down tonight.
I’ve have had ever puma made and sold everyone. I like the one mentioned above or my favorite company is Sotar. Light weight and tough as nails. I use to beat them up weekly guiding 80 miles floats in remote alaska. Pumas are heaven and to me row horrible, they are also skinny boats so storage because an issue. Good luck
Saw a raft on Craigslist that might fit the bill.
Aire Super Duper Puma with Fishing frame and trailer
Thanks I sent them some questions. We will see if this is the right boat.
