Thanks for responding to my question about maneuver ability with a 13' Trib. VS 12' Trib. You mentioned that your 13 footer has done everything you needed it to do. What rivers have you done and at what levels? My main goal is to get a small boat that will be sporty and nimble for bony floats and tight rapids. I'm leaning more towards the 13 just because it would do well on small AND big water....but wondering if the 12 might suit me better. Before its all said and done...I wonder if there is even much difference between the two?
