13.5' NRS Expedition (Red/Yellow/Black)
Holds air well, just requires a daily morning top off of the floor. 5 Small patches all done by previous owner with no issues. Reinforced rubber on frame contact points, as well as on the bottoms of the main tubes make this boat very durable...
We had an 8 day trip on salmon Main in June. Flow was 13k at put-in and about 40k at the take out. I have a 15ft NRS, but I swapped a few miles on the oars with my buddy that has a 15ft Aire. The Aire seemed to be much more maneuverable and a little faster even when loaded down. Has anyone...
I am wanting to buy a 14er. I have narrowed it down to
NRS Otter 140 or 142
Hyside Outfitter 14 or 14xt
or save my money with a RMR 14 Dropstitch.
I have ridden most of them and had fun. Mostly row with the occasional r4. 90% day trips and maybe the occasional overnighter...
Hey all, I am thinking of buying a raft for my family (wife and 3 elementary age boys) and for more adventurous rafting with friends. Of course as my boys get older we will be seeking out bigger adventures as well. :)

I'm going to look at a 12' NRS cat that is around 10 years old the guy said. He states it's been stored inside when not in use. I'm hoping for advice of what to look for with older NRS tubes. Is there anything specific that I should look at before buying.
Some friends were enjoying the good life until fate reared its ugly head. Daniel lost his BRAND NEW NRS 15ft RAFT. This raft had less than 200 miles on it. Please help if you can. Below is a short description of items lost. Contact are listed below. Please get the word out!!
Has anyone here tried the inflatable boat cleaner NRS sells? I was wondering how well it worked. I've used a product called MaryKate Inflatable Boat cleaner in the past, and it has given good results, but it is hard to find around here lately. The NRS cleaner is less expensive.
I'm looking for...
I tried hand paddling this last weekend with NRS propulsion gloves. Since purchasing the gloves I've found that companies like CKS are selling hand paddles that are bigger than the Propulsion Gloves and some seem to have a hard surface for the paddle (as opposed to neoprene creating a web...

Can anyone tell me specifically why a Hyside (Outfitter Pro) weighs less but has a higher denier count (by far) than a DRE Pro? I am geeked out on the specifics and because we can't seem to find a used Hyside (no longer patient) we are looking at DRE Pro 140 vs. a 14 ft. Outfitter Pro. The DRE...
