Does anyone have any expereince with the NRS Clearwater Drifter inflatable drift boat?

I am interested in opinions or experience about how this will handle whitewater. Will a competent boatman be OK running class III or IV?

NRS won't render an opinoin saying its based on the skill of the boatman.

The specs say it will not self bail if loaded over 1000 lb's. But, damn, look at how much space it has. I could easily see loading that sucker down.

I think it only has 2 or 3 chambers, so if it pops, you'll be in serious trouble.

Sweet price though. I can't wait to see one in the wild.
