R2-R4 Paddle Raft
So, I'm looking to pick up a raft to use mainly as an R2 and occasional R4 day trip boat. (There may be some backpack-style R2 overnights.)
The local PNW used market has a Aire Puma, 13' Saturns, 10.5 RMRs, and 10.5 hyside neos. (Along with various 14'+ rafts.)
The 12' Aire kinda hits the sweet spot length-wise, but it seems a bit narrow for my taste. I don't love R2ing 14' rafts, and having 4 folks in a 10.5 foot raft always seems a little tight to me. That being said, most of my prior experience has been in 14' Hysides and Avons, with only one or two trips in Aires and MiniMaxes.
I think that my dream setup would be a NRS/Hyside 12', since I don't have a trailer and have limited storage space. The new price tags on those are a bit high for me, though. (And used versions are tough to find.)
Are there other boats that I should be hoping to find or should I not be writing off the ones nearby?
