Are those things self bailing?

about as self bailing as an innertube... where do you expect water to pool on this? and how much water are you expecting it to hold?

Yeah, they're self bailing. The tube you sit on has a 2 inch gap between it and the tube behind it. That way the Cheetos don't get caught between the cushions.

Our favorite day trip rivers are all class III so maybe that's a little to extreme.

Yarrow, have you ever tried tying them together with front facing front? It seems like that would keep you inside a little better.

Sotar and maravia need to step up their game. They have yet to build a custy couch, Chinese poverty boat, a self bailing floor that holds water and a raft covered in zippers.

Don't fret , Sotor and Maravia have led the way with other inventions such as acceptable factory leakage and combining a USA made boat with a POS Asian made floor.

Dr. Andy, no I haven't tried that, but face to face was actually my first thought when you posted- like parlor seating. I would want to leave a little room between the two so you can still ride a bit loose and get wet, but that could be problematic with kids (I always think in terms of kids- I have 5.) Wouldn't want anyone getting stuck between the couches! Still, if you attached them from the bottom cushions using straps like the photo, you could adjust the slack accordingly- loose for adults and butting up for kids? I think it's worth trying. Have you ever seen these couches for rent?

Put some 16' cat tubes on each side and a modified frame (with ottoman) for a row couch.
