Got my raft today!

Whoo Hoo! I moved all the furniture in the living room to get it blown up and put in the floor (still working on it).

Doing the happy dance! I know you all are too cool to get excited about a new boat- but hot damn I'm flyin high!!!!!

My new sotar cat should be here tomorrow or Monday!!! I know the feeling. I've had my frame set up in the yard on coolers playing around with different set ups for the last week. They sent me pics when it was done and my happy dance started immediately. Congrats on your new rubber!

Ok- the boat takes up more space than my living room can provide and still get to the kitchen. The floor will have to wait until I can get some uninterrupted time to do it right. Not something I want to screw up. Pix to follow....

And Pinemonkey- mine looks a lot like yours.... Orange is a good color!

I remember my wife and I dithering about whether to buy a new or used raft...sixteen years ago. An old river rat friend of ours said "You'll never regret getting a new boat." He was right and the day it showed up was one of our best days together. Enjoy! (And yes I still have that boat and I still love it.)

CONGRATS! I was in your shoes 2 years ago. My baby sat in the basement all winter while I was working on her every night.


Now she is in the garage all blown up and fully loaded on the trailer. Even though my car is outside and got robbed two nights ago. But my boat is warm and safe inside

Getting a new boat was a much better feeling for me than getting a new car! Post some pics!
