New RMR Cat Tubes

Just picked up a set of 14' cat tubes from The Boat People in the East Bay area (California). Haven't done more than unroll them at this point but am impressed with what I see. Nice hardware, 3-chamber tubes, seams look clean. Can't wait to get them on the water.

14' Cat

I was wonder if you have tested out the RMR cat tubes yet? Where and how did it go? I'm considering them or the Saturn's.

No, I just sent a check for a new frame. Hope to have it in a week or so. If the King's still flowing, it'll be there. I am impressed with the build, pretty clean and looks bomber.

It's been pretty low, but still enough probably for a couple more weeks.
If the guage shows over 900 cfs at "Rogers Crossing" it's enough for rafts.

I'm planning a trip for next weekend, if ya wanna share suttle.(and help with the boney parts if it's low)
