I don't know if you can keep your wife; but i have seen all of them and I really don't like the little 9-12 foot NRS or hyside as they trap your foot. I swam the juicer on the Gauley in a 12 foot NRS and about drowned because of my foot getting stuck.
Shredders are great; does anyone know where to get one, that's the hard part. The best small raft out there is a Maravia Spyder. That boat is the schnizzle bedizzle and will be everything you ever wanted in a boat and then some.
