Need a raft!
Alrighty, I'm finally ready to throw down on a smooth tracking, pimp 15-16 footer with bells, whistles, and cup holders! I want a newer boat, but not brand new. I like the idea of buying one used and saving the ecological cost of the new boats. But I want one that feels new.
I'm not writing this for advice on what boat to buy. I prefer hypalon but I like Aire rafts and am open to any high quality craft, provided the price is right.
I am writing this because you (yes you!) have that friend that has been talking about selling her boat. Also because you know about that demo boat that your local shop is selling. Finally, I'm writing this because you have the perfect used frame, cataract oars, dry boxes, and everything else I need sitting in your garage and you need the money to buy a tank of gas this week.
So please Buzzards, tell me about those red hot deals lurking in the basements and back rooms of river shops.
P.S. If I can't find a boat by the end of next week I may be looking to rent a boat for Cataract. Anyone who wants to make a few bucks and lives between Fort Collins and Moab, give me a holler!
