Need pointers on what to get

What's up guys. First time post for me, I'm wondering what you would recommend for 2 guys to fly fish out of? I'm torn on rafts or catarafts. Also what's the best size boat for single and weekend trips? I have a 9 ft river guide cataraft but need to upsize. I'd like to get something I can float the Blue, Green, Colorado, Yampa and Ark and basically wherever lol. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again!

13' raft, cats are awesome, but you would need a bigger cat to get the same elbow room. Nice size to for those rivers when the water is low enough to be decent fishing, and enough room to be out for a couple days. If your friend casts like my fishing buddy when I was a kid, get a 14'.

That's what I was thinking. I found a great deal on a 12 ft kingfisher cat and he said 2 guys is no problem. Anyone ever had one or any feedback on that brand. I poked around and saw a few posts on them but just wondering what you guys thought.

Hmm, sounds small for two people, but maybe? Anyone else have an opinion on that?
Beuler?....
What diameter tubes? I have an 11' cat with 19" tubes, and 2 people paddling without a frame is the limit, for carrying capacity, but bigger tubes would take more weight, and blunt tubes would give you more usable boat space. Skeptical...

I got that from the net. I saw the boat but it's not all put together. But he said that's the same boat

Ok, I could see that boat working out to fish two people.

It looks good to me. The only thing I can't find is much info on these boats. Has anyone had one or known anybody you has?
