Thanks for the replies.

I'm rowing a 14' cat now w/alot of rocker. Been askin it to do things it's just not designed for (i.e. haul alot of gear). I like a smaller boat for slipping around easily, but want to haul a bit more with out risking my life in an overloaded cat.

I'm looking at having jacks make me a 15.5' X 26" set of tubes. that would be an upgrade from 14'X22" that I currently have. What do you think? Would that be enough of an upgrade to carry 2 + dog & gear for a comfortable week? without drafting too much? should I go for a bigger diameter tube?
