Our 15' DRE with fishing frame is the SS Denise Richards.

Long story, resulting from the collective of raft owners, a purported sighting of Mr. Sheen's ex in Steamboat, and an evening of a few too many drinks after a long day of fishing.

"HOP ON"

for a couple self proclaimed Hop Heads, it worked for us. We went as far as to have stickers made.

My Blue 16' Cat is R.V. Beluga. It's an apt description of both me and the boat.

My 17 yr old grandson's Purple 16' Cat is The Purple Penetrator. Oh, to be a teen again.............................

Well, that would be me.
But he was only 14 at the time with solid rafting skills. It's all a matter of priorities and values..........................

I've had a series of red boats that have all had the name Ruby. The original was a JPW Flyer Cat (14 X 19 cataraft) that was named The Ruby Slipper because she took me to Oz....in a metaphorical sense. Then I got a 14X22 red Maravia cat and the Ruby name passed on to her The Ruby II After that came a Teal 14 X 24 Maravia cat (the one I swore would be my last boat) and I continued the gemstone theme by naming her Jewel Of The Nile. Well, as we all know, there is no such thing as a "last boat'" and I traded Jewel in on a red & black Sotar raft, named Ruby III aka Ruby The Pirate Queen since she is decked out in red & black skull & crossbone straps.

I also own two SOT touring kayaks. One is blue and named Little Cloud, and the other is red & silver......Ruby IV of course.

Then there's the on that started it all. My 10 foot Outcast mini cat that's blue. It's named Little Blue. It's 20 years old now and I still take it down the river. It's been on 2 Southfork Snake trips this summer.

Mine is named the Sleigh, it was given on a Salt trip this spring due to my "Santa" bag in a red boat.
