didn't know an Nrs 15 footer
NRS E-150 Self-Bailing Rafts at NRSweb.com
is worth $800 more than a 14 foot Avon.
There have some great deals here that have been popping up. An E-140 for $600 less and looks good if you can tolerate yellow. I couldn't.

Do you need the 15 footer? Need to carry 3 people and you for a week at a time?
Are you day boating? Fishing? For light duty I would want a 13 or 14 footer. My buddy does 6-7 days and GC trips in his Avon 14 foot.
A 15 footer would be perfect for me doing high water Middle Fork Salmon trips and very low flow fall trips. It's just a little big for day tripping. Unless you have six or seven people to put in a paddle boat. Just thinking out loud here. I don't know what you want to do. Have you done multiday trips? Getting ready? Then it is the right size.
For the original raft I think $2,200 to $2,500 would be my max. Take cash. Nothing talks like the Benjamins.
