BDD, are you a RMR dealer now? What size is the raft pictured?
Verendus, if you haven't done so, check out Rocky Mountain rafts. Lots of good for the money. I have their 14' Cat tubes and they are rugged. Heavy, tho. Welded PVC.
Here is my boat. speaking of Rocky mountain rafts I saw that riverboat works is having a 20% off sale on them.
14' RMR tubes, frame is 40"x 69" X 88" by KVI. Floor is 38"x 88" bleacher planks.
You are correct sir. Glad you like it.
We have built frames for RMR. Good products, good prices. That is a 13 footer posted in the picture and later bought by Rick.
Thanks everyone for posting your thoughts and photos. I almost bought RMR after seeing its bombproof construction and unbelievable price. I think anyone looking for a quality raft should consider this brand. But, I ended up going with a full 16' Aire 156D. This was a tough decision as I wanted a good fishing boat, but also a family raft for multiday trip. 14' would've been great for the former purpose but with kids growing up fast, 16' was a no brainer. Now I have all the space I want for a self-supported multiday steelhead trips. This will be a big jump for me as I am coming from a 10' toy boat (Assault XX). No more throwing the raft in the trunk and driving off to a river. Trailer is a must, and my set of oars weigh more than my 10' Scadden.
I love the AIRE design as it has a urethan bladder that can easily be patched up on the water. The quality of material and construction is something to behold. It also has a sealed floor unlike the regular Aire models, so will be a lot more nimble and quick.
Here's a picture of my new ride. I didn't get the frame. And will be building my own rowing frame, as I will be using the raft as transport. I am also looking forward to running some class IV+ whitewater. A lot more boat than I set out to find, but I am happy with the choice.
Dig those rod holders. Nice setup.
Jake, much searching with no results of anything that looked right (positive locking), unobtrusive and reasonably priced, I found these @ The Fly Shop in Redding; cheap too, at $3.95 for 2. Used them 2x now, holding SH up to 12' spey/switch rods. They get 'er done.
Smith River, MT.
Ok thanks....looks amazing.
I'd love to take a toon on a river fishing/camping trip someday.
