I have a predator pontoon. Served me well except I didnt like the foot bar. Since I mostly pack it, I replaced that with a piece of rope run through a piece of pvc. That lowers the footrest as much as you'd like. Now I have a 10 foot dragonfly 2 man. The frame is very adaptable as it can be set up for one or two with the standing rest forward or middle. This summer I did two solo wilderness floats in Alaska. The first a 4 day on the middle part of the Gulkana, class 1,2, 2+. The radt performed well, and due to low water that was a very rock laden float of 35 miles. The second float was on the Goodnews River, 1&2, 65 miles, and that one was 12 days. Again the raft was reliable. That river is not rocky but has a lot of wood, some of it whittled to sharp points by beavers. That gave me pause, but I managed to avoid them. I would have been more comfortable with a heavier raft in those cases, but on fly ins weight is always a consideration. I found the raft to be durable enough, it shows no wear to speak of, for the class 1 or 2 wilderness floats I'm interested in. The raft, new, was missing the stripping basket, but it came promptly when requested. I talked to Scadden once regarding a pinhole I put in the predator. He offered that I could ship it back for warranty or patch with aquaseal, as he would, and save a lot of time. Patch still good after 4 more years of hard use. The travel oars with the dragonfly a skinned up a bit, but I never felt they might fail at any point.
