Help identifying a boat.

So I have seen a few rafts around the greater Bozeman area and elsewhere in MT/ID that have quite a pronounced bit of kick/rocker to them. I was hoping maybe someone here will recognize this boat or knows who is making these wild boats with a ton of rocker and really high floors. Here is the best pic I could find of one, while this isn't the exact boat I am talking about it is pretty representative.

Cronin is making the ugly duck. An IK of the same design as that raft. I saw some prototypes from them and creature craft...so it's one of those guys.

It looks very similar to those Cronin Ugly Ducklings. But it is a full size raft and maybe slightly less pronounced squaring of the fore and aft tubes.

This is a Cronin Inflatable, if you jump on his website you can get in touch with him about the new style. Hope that helps Kindly, Renee

Star Rafts had a really high rocker and high floor. Bug series? They were marketed as a cat-like ride.

The Stars don't really have those square bows. Just huge tubes and high membrane floors.

That photo was just the closest think I could find. The Star is definitely the raft I was curious about.
