Tributary's are solid at a reasonable price. NRS, DRE and Aire's are better. I'd stay away from Sea Eagle.
Personally, I plan to buy two IK's in the next year and without any doubt I will be purchasing two SOAR's. Debating between two canyons or two pro pioneers. I like the way the seats sit at the top of the tubes. More like a canoe. No wet butt! You can also put a small frame on one.
The pro pioneer has a 1500 pound capacity, so fairly luxurious overnighters are easily accomplished. All of the SOAR owners I have talked too have said they love theirs and the people at SOAR are cool. I'm surprised you don't see more of them.
I'm buying two for ultimate versatility. I plan to have a custom frame built that will connect the two like a cat. Ton's of storage with two 16' x 48" wide boats
They are a little more than a Sea Eagle but you have a serious boat.
