You guys have to try out the 9 footer on Boulder Creek

Our 9 foot raft is a blast to paddle on boulder creek. and it's only $25 for three hours.

Been looking alot for info on these. N Wigston, anything you can tell me about the 9' (i'm assuming this is an RMR raft right?) on water performance? Anyone else make a Hyside Mini-Me comparison? These can hold a 100 more lbs than a Mini-Me so the construction would seem pretty stout. Any info on these would be greatly appreciated, i'm ready to pull the trigger on one if MB community has some helpful reviews. Thanks all, happy tuesday!

Why dont you just buy at 10ft Sotar. A better quality boat for sure.

I thought a local dealer had one in stock but he does not. You're right scooby, better luck next year I guess

a sotar should be better quality considering a 10ft will cost close to $4000 once you add chafe guard and foot cups. I wanted to buy on myself but I went with the RMR and love it.

Never rafted Boulder creek, but I'm thinking about a run tonight. Do you think a 13 foot Sotar would fit though the whitewater park down to 30th?

It all goes with a 12' cat with a high seat so a paddle raft, no problem.
Might run again tomorrow night.

That one is a random brand. I'm getting in a Tributary 9.5 footer within the next few days for renting, which looks like a nice boat. I should be able to special order tributary 9.5 footers if anyone wants one. Price is $1958. if more than one of you guys wants one, we could do a group order and save some $$$. Let me know. downstreamedge@gmail.com
