One person raft like a freestone, watermaster or assault? I have a fishing SOT, Ride 135, nice platform and versatile. Much heavier than one of the inflatable solo rafts.
Yeah, from a portability perspective a kayak is still not ideal (cannot really pack it in anywhere). I figured a trolley will help in some cases though. I love the idea of a raft, especially for rivers. Does not seem logical for the salt however.One person raft like a freestone, watermaster or assault?

Thanks Ed. I guess the only concern with a raft and the salt is speed then and the amount of water I can cover. Something to consider - appreciate the info.Inflatables are used in the salt all the time. I've used mine occasionally. Less because I have other options.
I like my Native Ultimate 12, but mines the original 2006 or '07 solo version (dealer had it in inventory for more than a year when I bought it on sale in the Spring of 2008), with no slide rail mounts. Hull without the seat in weighs only 50lbs, and its easy to car-top on my Forester.I ended up with a Native Watercraft kayak from AKC. I got the 14.5' convertible so that I can go solo or with the girlfriend. Lightweight, comfortable, and adaptable for all kinds of gear with slide rail mounts and rod holders. Also stable enough to stand up in and fly fish
