Show me your raft

#16
If money were no option, I'd get a Maravia raft with a 3 module custom aluminum frame. But since it is an object, this is my alternative.

The one thing I might change is build a custom, break down aluminum rower module and put it on one of the 80 lb NRS rafts and invite a buddy to split the cost on a Dean River helicopter drop off float trip.
BDD, are you a RMR dealer now? What size is the raft pictured?

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.
