I know this boat is billed as a big paddle raft, but does anyone know how it handles with an oar rig?
Is the smaller tube diamiter a problem when loaded for a long trip?

Bigger tubes are always better, but, theres also more tube, than say a 15' boat.
My 15' has 22" tubes and it handles great loaded up. I think if you had a smoking deal on one go for it, or else just save your money for what you really want. Rafts are a big investment.

Yeah, we're looking for a family rig for lots of room and gear.
