How long ago did Aire sell rafts with a foam floor?

Trying to figure out how old this raft might be.

Mid 90's? My Aire is an 03, and has an inflatable floor. My buddy had a foam floor Super Puma (13'), and that was a great boat. Doesn't store very small, but super durable. Maybe try contacting Aire directly? I have had great luck with real people answering the phone there.

Hi InflatableSteve,

The Foam floors were a pretty slow phase out. By about 2003 we really stop offering the Foam floor option, but people still requested it even after that. The best way to identify the year of the raft is to get the serial number. If it is an old boat, and the logo still looks that good, I'm guessing it has been stored inside.

Let us know if you have any other questions!
