That Outfitter sounds a little pricey to me. There is an older Riken duckie for $350 for sale on the Rafts classified section here that is in Salida that would be a good upgrade potentially for your situation. It needs a patch it sounds like which is not a big deal but it has also been for sale for a few weeks so the price may be negotiable to some extent.
