if someone was to buy YOU your fav boat ?

If you could have the boat of your dreams- if its manufactured- and a nice purchaser would spring for it, what would it be ? Just the basic boat. The nice purchaser has a budget though - $4300.00. And you want it to be in the 13-14' range. Oh and the purchaser has a place in their heart for Avon ( Hyp) boats . What manufacture would you head towards ?
Yea I know, but I cant make up my mind !
Been reading posts and reading and.
Getting back into it and want a boat that will last.

One of those top end pack rafts,a nomad,and the remaining$ 1300 on kind nuggets,Czech beer ,and bimbos..or just the deluxe Alpacka/Alpackalypse and plane tickets....pretty nice benefactor!!...for rafting you will need to spend another several grand for oarlocks ,coolers,umbrellas,hand holding lessons,kitchen sinks, etc and probably a suburban or truck with dualies to haul it all...

shredder type raft would be cool and $ left over

carvedog : I have heard the Milpros are just as good as the originals. But opinions are like so many things.
Still heavy that's for sure. Any one hear otherwise ? Price is right me thinks. Have time now and always dreamed of the Avon's. 2000lb's is a lot of Steak n Bourbon..

I think you could still do the Main at high water. It would be a bitch to fly in to Indian Creek though.
