The extra thwart helps keep the feet in the boat, but there is no comparison to the control you get with footpegs. The pegs are glued to the sides of the outer bladders so you actually get to use your thighs for quick tilts or down pressure for quick turns and spins. The people at Salida Boatworks are the best, because they have done alot installments. The cost was $80 back in 2009, so probably a little more today.

Gunnerman, thanks. I bought a raft from the good folks in Salida, so I will see what they say. I was looking at the pegs that you drill, AIRE and not glue though. In your opinion, is there a difference? The quote I received in Denver puts it at about $160 a boat with purchase of the pegs.
