This is all great insight and thank you for the responses. The RMR in Albany is the RMR I'm looking at. I really like the looks of the other two. They just have a better appeal to them. I am leaning towards the RMR though. Something about having a new boat is out weighing the rest. I need a deciding factor to really push me over the edge.

As far as storing outside under double cover, does one have a advantage over the other???

Probably not a big deal to store any of them outside. If you don't get the one you are leaning towards you will probably be doing a lot second guessing.

I'd go with a used Avon, Sotar, Hyside, NRS, take care of it, then sell it for what you paid for it 5-8 years later, someone compared ford/chevy/Hyundai, like a Chevy truck aforementioned boats hold their value. If you're going to roll it after each trip go with Hypalon for sure. Seems to me PVC and cold air don't go well together, here in the mountains Dec,Jan,Feb,March are cold on brittle material outside in deep freeze.

I don't think you can go wrong with any of your choices. I've been please with my how my RMR handles on the water. Both Sotar and Maravia are great boats as well. Just haven't owned one yet. I have rowed a Sotar and they are real nice boats. If I hadn't bought the RMR. I would have bought my buddies Sotar the following spring when he sold it to get buy an Avon.
