This is the cataraft we used for our kid for years. Of course I custom made the inflatable floor. We did not use the motor on river trips except once on Cataract and my kids were not on that one. Kate was 9 months old on her first trip, San Juan. We did not have this boat. Then we made this system it worked great. we kept the crib up on the front deck, and the beavertail deck was fantastic for washing kids after dipper changes. I would not recommend using the floor for serious whitewater, but back then we did a lot of Deso and San Juan trips. This picture was taken on lake powell where I picked up a Pack cat trip off of the Escalante. That was back when the lake was full. By the way, Kate has rowed the grand at 19, and we are going down the Middle fork on a R2 paddle boat this summer. I just can not let her have the oars all to herself, so we are compromising. She is now 22 years old.
