I'm going to be selling my Aire 156D this spring. It is completely set up and ready to go for your needs. It was purchased less than a year ago and is still new. It is lime green and awesome. If you are interested in me sending pics please contact me at 406-529-1259.
Even if you don't buy mine, Aire boats are top of the line with SOTAR. I have done a lot of fabric research and I can't see why SOTAR charges so much more than everyone else. The fabric is not that much stronger. But since some people pay more for them they think they can look down on Aire. In fact considering the inner bladder on Aire boats I would put them with an advantage. That's my 2cents.
