Big Red - 1986 14' Achilles and Lil Red - 1990 12.5' Achilles
The section 4 is a fun boat. Narrow 14' paddle raft with an insanely thick floor. It weighs a ton but you can just drag it to the put in!I need a tiny DIB in my life.
20+ years? A 'classic car' is over 20 years but an 'antique car' is over 45 years old and I doubt there are many rafts that age.How old to be vintage?
The old girl had many pinhole leaks that bubbled with the paint job. I’ve often wondered if the repaint was a really poor professional job or a pretty good amateur job.@ Gchapman - you must be lying! Only hypalon can last that long and all Maravias get pinhole leaks year 6 🤪
I thought about putting a pic of my 20 year old Maravia up but thought no one would believe me.@ Gchapman - you must be lying! Only hypalon can last that long and all Maravias get pinhole leaks year 6 🤪
That’s an awesome boat! Thanks for sharing.Here's a shot of my 1986 NRS Sprite 13.5' . 35 years old.
She's got some small pinhole leaks and needs a daily pump, but still goes on fishing trips here in CO. View attachment 82043
