input about Saturn Rafts

Thinking of buying a Saturn raft 15 footer. Cant afford a Maravia, Avon, Aire, etc. I like the specs on the boat and need something for the middle fork permit I drew this year. Any feedback positive or negative would be appreciated. Thanks. Paddle on.

Are there any changes to Saturn Rafts this year?

I know they upgraded their valves a year or so ago.

I see NRS stocks them and that seems to make a repeat of the 'Costco bargain' unlikely.

I would look at Rocky Mountain Rafts, pretty close to the same money for a welded PVC boat.

Seems like Saturn is finding its way into many of our lives. I think they work just fine for private boaters. But I would agree w/ Grifgav and take a good look at Rocky Mountain and Vangaurd too. I have friends paddling both and they seem to be great boats. I even saw a guy ripping it up in a Baltic last summer.

Oops.

I think I might have glanced at a Saturn site that advertised NRS frames etc. for Saturn Rafts.

sorry.
