I have had a Saturn raft for three seasons , I have used this boat as a paddle raft , also with a stern mount frame and as an expedition boat. This boat rocks ,I have never had one problem , I would take this boat anywhere , I have had it on the main Salmon,Middle fork of the Salmon,Locsha at 18000cfs ,all of the Payettes except the North Fork, the Bruneau, upper and lower OYE's.,Hells Canyon and it totally performs . I totally recommend these rafts they are light and handle great you can move them anywhere you need to be on the river. I own a 14' ,and plan on getting a 15'6" as a bigger gear boat . Don't be afraid of the price ,they are very well built ,I have never had to add air because of leaks in fact it still has the original air in it from the first time I inflated it . This is one great boat!!
