I run a 156d aire on medium water I love it, 3 to 4 day trips with 3 to 4 people it is great. also some times just the wife and I the extra room is awesome. I run it on some skinny stuff later in the year and it performs wonderful. find a quality raft in your budget and make it work. I don't think I could go backwards in size of the boat, get a good trailer because they get heavy when loaded for a long trip. Best advice get a quality boat, and you won't be disappointed.

I'm a sotar guy and just recently purchased a 14'6 sl that will be used for lower rogue trips as well as salmon and snake. I've outfitted it with a 3 bay frame to haul cooler dry box drop bag or dry box and 2 coolers. I will be rowing 100 percent of the time and be hauling 1 person plus the dog. I certainly would not go smaller than a 14 if 5-6 day trips. Not that a smaller boat can't handle it but because you start to become limited on space. The sotar factory is 5 minutes from my place so I didn't bother lookin at aire. They are great boats though.
