Linkey no worky.

I checked out their site, a welded boat for under $2k is definitely intriuging. I wonder how heavy duty the fabric is.

They must be so affordable because they saved money on their website; i.e. not much info and no real material or dimensional specs.

Yea, at the very minimum, It would be nice to know what weight the material is, what the tube diameter is, and how the floor is constructed/ attached. Hell, maybe even what type of valves it has. Does it have a prv?

Also seems a little odd that an 18' is the same price as a 12'.

Its a kayak company from NZ, might want to temper your website and information expectations a fair bit, brahs.

I think it can be hard to get their kayaks stateside, wonder how raft distribution will work.

My assumption is that it should say "starting at" before that price.

I also assume, until told otherwise, that these are likely another rebranded chinese raft probably made in the same factory as some of the other chinese brands. It would be great to hear more about these though.

At this point, I'd probably only consider one if I was gonna spend time in NZ and wanted to have my own raft.
