Yeah, still haven't pulled the trigger. My latest jones is for the smith big shoals raft, or the flycraft, as they look interesting in a compromise sort of way. Transportable, yeah, generally light, yeah, pretty good shallow water boats or so google says. Decent 2-3 person capability for day trips. I'm not doing the grand canyon here, so deep whitewater performance is not m my musts, but I would like a quality boat. Yeah, well, google 'em and get an opinion or two. Done it. What say you? Any owners here? Are they in fact Saturn rafts with snazzy frames? Do they row, are they reasonably dry on rivers without named rapids? Last, and I'd like some input on this question as well from those of you who own inflatables...tell me about your dog. My dog's gotta go, and if he and the tubes are natural enemies, i'll just stop pining away now. Thanks for your advice my friends.
