Well, since someone else started it.
I bought 2 for my rental fleet this spring. They didn't go out much because they were mainly as backups if another boat had a problem but I did take them out myself several times. I got a 2011 14' and a 2011 16'
the valves suck. you have to do them just right and the spring seems too strong making it hard to pump unless you twist them to open the whole time. They sometimes slip off of open accidentally. They take a certain touch, then you are good to go. they do not leak- so far.
The floor design
I did slip my leg under the floor once to check it out but it came right back out. If you happen to get wedged in there and happen to wrap at the exact wrong moment and happen to be very unlucky it could be ugly. Probably no more dangerous than a bow line coil, a loose chicken line, a cargo net or any other entrapment hazard most people deal with.
Some sand can get between the wrap floor and the inflatable floor but is very easy to clean and hasn't been a big issue
They are super heavy. the 16' is heavier than a hypalon 18'/
they don't roll well. even if you suck the air out they roll pretty big. I would have a hard time getting a 14' in a sedan trunk. hypalon fits easily.
I ran the grey's twice at low water in WY. I did not bring my A game. Both in 1 day runs I RAMMED a very sharp pointy rock coming down a slide/rapid with 10 people in a 16' saturn. The rock compeltely stopped the boat. 20 to 0 in 1 second. The first run left a visible but inconsequential line down the middle of the floor. The second hit put a pinhole through the wrap and inflatable floor directly below the valve. the hole was unnoticed through the rest of the run, though the floor did get soft.
The inflatable floor does not seem like bomber mega thick material. I would be worried if I dropped my knife point first. This said I have had no issues dropping dryboxes, misc gear and tools in it and jumping on it for fun.
I ran the 16' boat on the lower salmon and noticed the floor going soft on the first day. I found the leak (from the grey's) and patched it with my aire PVC kit. Took 30 minutes and looks perfect. since the patch is between the wrap floor and the inflatable floor I do not expect any wear problems. It is holding like a rock star.
the price is right. I paid about $100 per foot. that is 1/2 of my other boats and 1/3 of some.
the build is clean. I can't complain about the seams. they are straight and tight.
The materials are thick and holding up very well (with the noted exception). I have had them on very bony rivers, rammed everything in sight and the floor materials are doing very vell.
The performance is good. I've run the class IV and been fine. The bail as fast as any and get around OK. Maybe not a sportscar but I always have a full load so it is hard to say, if I go light I take a cat.
The floor can take something like 10psi. it is a solid fishing platform. Better than hypalon.
The boats take all of my standard frames with ease, though a stern frame pulls on the d-rings funny. I should add more but I am lazy.
