I see Otters here and along with a lot of E-Series still being used commercially on the Ark from Browns down to the Gorge. They look to be going strong lots from the mid 90s too. Kinda crazy when you think of a 2000 model doesn't sound that old but is already 15!
Ours has Halkey Roberts valves so pre 1995 and was a great raft for a long time. We just replaced it this year, but it still holds air and we plan on giving it to the kids. Replaced it mostly because our kids got bigger we needed a bigger raft.
