This has boggled my mind for sometime, because to me, on paper, it seems like a near-perfect craft. obviously, you lose some storage, and comfort over a drift boat, but the load carrying and whitewatering ability should be superior. Alot of guys run round rafts, but after rowing one, I wasnt that impressed with the handling. In actuallity, it took more effort to get moving, spin, and turn than my alumaweld drifter. I primarily fish with one other person and a dog, and it seems like a cat would make sense. Anyhow, who has experience rowing one? and what is your take on it? Keep in mind, i am still refurbing my alumaweld, so I will have a hard boat as well.
