Used raft websites?

Looking to purchase a raft, done the research on what I want, just searching for the right set-up. Trying to be picky...looking for 14'(ish) hypalon. Pro-form is an option, but still holding out for a used set-up.
Besides craiglist,ebay,nrs-swap,buzz...Anyone suggest a website for searching? Know of any outfitters getting rid of some stock? Better yet, got a full set-up getting dusty?

There's a YahooGroup called RiverTrader: RiverTrader : RiverTrader

You just missed the swap at DRE last weekend.

Other than sites you mentioned and River Trader I can't think of anything else. You might want to hit the swap meet at DRE this spring also. Just be preapred to buy immediately when you find a good deal and stay away from used outfitter boats. Edit: Oops on that DRE swap...that was last week.

NRS has a Gear Swap page too:
NRS Gear Swap

You can also search craigslist nationwide if you Google using a site search function; for example google "NRS raft site:craigslist.org" and you'll get NRS raft results for all cities.

There's also this, which lets you choose multiple cities for a Craigslist search.

crazedlist.org : search craigslist like a madman
