I have a removable beaver tail on my 16' cat with a big ass everything bag from TRS. I really like the flexibility of adding and removing the tail and having the space for a LOT of gear. You have to watch about too much weight in the back but with two passengers up front it balances nicely

I had a 16' aire jag and went to the 16' lion... It is night and day what I can carry and I added two feet to the frame for a 12 foot frame that makes it seem so much easier to put thing and room to move around.. I take four people down a main or hells easy... Loaded a little on the light side it was a dream on a 2' middle fork.. was deffinatly stuck less than everyone else.. Love those big diameter tubes.. I gained a lot without going longer but rather getting larger diameter tubes..

I had an Avon 16 for years and there was always room for everything and everyone. Now I have an Aire jag 16 and it fills up pretty good on a week long trip with only 2 people and a dog or two.

Just getting ready for a 5 day trip. I carry a family of six with all the gear on Aire 156D. Great gear boat that is also nimble and quick.
