The starter of this thread was the one that fixed the hole. Any comments young jedi?
This is our "Colorado" series, which is a lighter weight boat. It is similar to the Ducky. The Ducky is not the beefiest boat around, but we have a lot of outfitters using them and they all seem to like them.
The raft is a 420 Denier on the tubes and top section of the floor. The underside of the floor is 1260 Denier, all of which is the same as the Ducky. The big diifference is the rafts have urathane on the underside of the tubes.
This 11' boat should not be compared to an Outfitter Hyside. These boats are designed for the person using them 20 days or less a year. It is comparable to the NRS Otter and Hyside Rio Bravo (which have heavier fabrics ontop (1100 denier, but do not do the Urathane or bump strakes).
Good luck in your search.
