yes better now... not sure what it is... never seen one exactly like it... maybe it was a custom project for National Geographic.... my best guess would be something similar to an AIRE Outfitter IK... maybe a prototype? are you thinking about buying? whats the story??? Good Luck!

Might just be the picture, but it looks to wide for an IK and the ends look too rounded for an Ik. Maybe a Puma? More info would be helpful. Do you have any measurements? It certainly looks like an Aire. They do do custom projects as mentioned above.

Here is one they did recently for Winding Waters River Expeditions. 20' long with 28" tubes.

It's for sale in DC, where Nat Geo is based. Maybe the guy works there idk the story. Is that a foot cup in front, where are the thwarts, the length looks like 12 or 13 ft to me.

Waiting for an email back from the seller.

I would call Aire. I am sure they have record of making it if they are the ones that made it.

Must be a sweep boat for the Grande Ronde.

Definately an Aire boat. Some subtle differences. Thier IKs dont have D-rings. It does look wide for an IK.
