Time to upgrade!
Hey Buzzards! I've been running an older 13'9" Hyside for a few years and while I love it, and still plan on keeping it for fishing and the occasional paddle raft, I've outgrown it... With two kids that are growing every time I feed them, the Hyside has reached the max for trips longer than a few days.
My wonderful wife finally agreed that we should grab a bigger boat, so now I'm on the hunt for the perfect ride.
I'm looking for a 16ft that will be used mainly as an oar boat, trailered but rolled in the winter. Haven't done the Grand yet, but it's on the horizon.
I'm stuck between the NRS160 and Aire156R.
I'm sure I can't go wrong with either of the above. I'm kinda leaning toward the Aire just due to price, but I've never rowed one.
Anybody want to talk about durability, handling, materials, etc? Why the significant price difference between the two?
Help me with the decision!
