Rocky Mountain Paddle Cat

Hey Buzzards! The RMR PaddleCat (PC-120) is finally here! Only $1299! Please check with your local RMR dealer or with any of us here at Rocky Mountain Rafts for details and availability.

The RMR PC-120 is designed to be paddled R1, R2 and it comes standard with 2 foot cups installed on the cockpit floor. It can also be rigged with up to a 60 rowing frame. Our Paddle Cat features all welded, PVC, Uni-tube construction with two inflatable chambers that make the boat rigid and light (approx. 53 lbs.). The 23 main tubes allow for maximum comfort in the 15 deep cockpit with 8 of space below the reinforced self-bailing floor. It punches through large standing waves, turns on a dime, and is nimble enough to avoid anything you want to miss.

One last thing: PLEASE check out the Rocky Mountain Raft Facebook page for our Paddle Cat Naming Contest. The winner will be chosen on Memorial Day at 12 noon EST. and will receive a $500 RMR gift credit.

That thing looks awesome!
I only wish you could have shaved 3.5lbs. off....so you can fly with it.
Then it would be perfect!

Those look great! Is there enough room to have a knee down on the floor? Any provisions for adding a thwart to straddle, ala you-know-who? Is the floor 2 layers of PVC?

More photos/videos?

I don't believe the floor is inflated and the cockpit is probably not big enough for a thwart.

Lochsa Falls! The paddle cat handled the river well. This was our only swim.

Paul, it doesn't look like it works - it flipped over. Is it defective?

I'm really stoked to buy one of these this season. Can you speak to it's bailing performance?

Thanks RMR for the affordable boat! Can we submit names here too? I don't have a Friend Book but I do have some good ideas....

It works really well very confidence inspiring. There was never a moment I had any reason to wonder about its draining performance. Super fun can't imagine a better fun factor in the inflatable world for the money.
