AVON River Runner Raft "THE DRIFTER"
If hypalon is unaffected by uv, then why the need to wipe down with 303?

"The Drifter"

For what it's worth bucket boats, when very lightly loaded row very well, they're much cleaner underneath and have less drag so they are much easier (as in less exertion) to back row. For a dedicated fishing boat I would by a bucket boat over a selfbailer in a heart beat. It's interesting what folks from different parts of the country with different focuses on the river think of other peoples preferences. Montana is filled with shallow, fast moving rivers with comparitively few rapids. On these rivers most of the water entering the boat is from waders and such and having the heavier, "rougher" floor is not necessary for most folks. They obviously have their drawbacks, especially in bigger water but it's all about what you use your boat for. With that said I wouldnt spend 2-grand on one and obviously nobody else will either as this guy has been listing that boat since May at least!

Yeah, we're all a bunch of idiots so stay away, plus there is really nothing to see here anyways so if you're thinking of a western boating vacation you should probably stick to one of the other states...

This guy has been updating this posting every couple of weeks for I think a year or longer. At least I think i have seen it coming up in searches regularly for nearly a year. It even has 2013 registration, so it is good to go.
That boat is nearly an antique, so maybe that's his justification for charging $1000 for a boat that's nearly 40 years old and a motor that's at least 30.

14" Maxxon self bailing white water raft - $2800

This one is a screamer - reduced from $3000! I actually wrote to this guy in October and pointed out to him that a brand new Maxxon 14' raft could be purchased for $1600 (even sent him the link), but apparently he thinks there is something special about his boat. Piece of crap trailer $300 extra.

Not just one, or two twarts......but three twarts. Although, all of the pictures show two twarts. Maybe twarts are magic, and they can appear and disappear on command?
