Description

Raft Inflatable Kayak Cataraft Free Shipping

RMR 105 SB Storm Whitewater Raft. At 10' 6", the Storm has been the smallest raft from Rocky Mountain, though for 2018 they are introducing the "Cloud", a new nine foot two-thwart raft. The self bailing RMR 105 SB Storm Whitewater Raft has two main air chambers, the floor, and two removable thwarts for a total of five Leafield valves, not counting the pressure relief valve on the floor. This is one of the most affordable "personal size" models on the market. And though small, it is built from very beefy 2000 denier pvc, making it strong enough for commercial use and probably overkill for most private boaters. It is simply a scaled down version of the large RMR rafts.

The Storm can be paddled with two to four adults, though three is probably ideal. If you wish to row with a frame, one or both thwarts can be quickly removed. There are no frame chafer strips on top but it is fairly easy to wrap the frame side bars with pipe insulation to prevent marking, should you wish.

Like all Rocky's, the Storm is fully welded including the D-rings. There are two D's on each side (plus one at the bow & stern) and more can be added if you need them for a frame. The color choices will vary from month to month. We typically carry blue/gray, orange/gray, and sometimes the military green & gray, lime, or red.

The price on this little raft include lower-48 ground UPS and is low enough that many boaters can afford to add it to their collection without breaking the bank. In our personal experience over the last 33 years, when various friends with 13' and 14' rafts pick up a smaller boat, they end up using it far more than their full size raft. And if you already have all the life jackets, paddles, and pumps for your large boat, that only leaves the raft to purchase.

    NRS See-Thru Lock Top Drybag, Large size $34.00

The clear sides of the See-Thru's are made with a vinyl that has 1/4" spaced scrim inside the clear material. The Large size SeeThru bag is 11.5" X 23" and costs $34. These are "lock-top" style bags where you roll the top down, and bring the male & female fastex buckles around and snap them together.

  • MTI Canyon Type V Lifevest

    MTI Canyon Type V Lifevest $119.00

    These are the brand new version of the Canyon from MTI. We won't be getting the newer versions of the Youth size until later this Summer. We still have plenty of the previous year's Youths for now.

    Although the basic pattern of MTI's Canyon type 5 rafting jacket has not changed, many cosmetic and durability details have been addressed compared to the 2010/2011 version of this lifevest. For one thing, all the exterior nylon has been beefed up to a 400 denier ripstop fabric, and the areas most likely to stain have been changed to a black color. And all of the 2012's we're carrying will be a three-tone color. This small/medium size is orange/blue/black. Very soft, high grade foam is used for the front and wrap-around side panels, with a somewhat stiffer foam in back. The logos are also now attractively woven onto the vests.

    The Canyon is a terrific compromise between the features of the old America's Cup Ultrafloat & Rogue models (America's Cup/Wellington is long out of business). A very important feature on the Canyons is the bottom-most of the four straps, running below the actual foam This allows you to snug it far more securely than almost any other type V. The Canyon also incorporates split cells in the back panel, and front foam blocks that are slit horizontally 2/3 of the way up the chest. Both these features increase your ability to bend forward or backward when paddling & rowing.

    These come in two adult sizes (plus the Youth size, which is listed separately in this section of our site). The chest sizing shown on the jacket interior for the small-medium is 30" to 40", but in actual testing here we have found this size will cinch as small as 29" with no problem, and it goes up to a full 43" on the chest if you loosen all three pairs of straps on both sides. So it and the large-xl overlap somewhat, which is good if your paddle crew droids come in varying body sizes. The small/medium has 25-1/2 pounds of buoyancy and the l/xl has about 26.5.

    One other thing to note is that the Canyon vest is perhaps the warmest type V we've ever checked out, which may or may not be a good thing depending where you boat. With the very secure bottom strap though, you can unbuckle the upper straps in the calm stretches to cool off. The Canyon is one of the most comfortable type 5's and the best at staying where it belongs on your torso.

    As of this update, we do still have a handful of yellow 2011 Large/XL size Canyons for $99 if you wish to save a little cash. Call us on the phone if you want those.

  • K-Pump K-200 Hand Pump for topping off, stow bag included

    K-Pump K-200 Hand Pump for topping off, stow bag included $89.00

    The K200 is just like a stretched out K-100 or EZ Pump. All three K-pumps we carry have a mushroom shaped plunger grip that is very comfy to grip. The K-200 is an excellent option for small to mid-size rafts and high volume oddities like AIRE's Traveler inflatable canoe, or many similar models from Grabner.

    The model K-200 and K-100 have the most effortless action of any manual pumps made. This is due in part to them having no check valve, with the reasoning that almost all modern inflatables already have one-way valves for air inflation. If you need one equipped with a check valve, it's no problem, but you will need to phone us so we can order one for you. The K200 is just a bit over 2 pounds, measures 30", and it comes with a semi-waterproof stash bag like the EZ Pump and the other two K-pump models.

    Each K-Pump has a two-year warranty and an extra O-ring hidden inside the front end of the main body. They also come with several tip adaptors. Any barrel style pump should be re-lubed once per season, or more often if your usage is heavy.

    The K-Pump K200 is $89.

  • PVC Footloops for Rafters

    PVC Footloops for Rafters $9.50

    PVC Footloops

    Footloops for rafts are available in PVC and rubber; the Hypalon footloops cost more (12.50 each) and are special-order only so they are not on our shopping cart. Footloops are less expensive than footcones, and generally hold one's foot more securely; the down side is that the danger of foot entrapment is increased. Back in our rental days, one raft that was equipped with these flipped during a high flow on the American River in the Sierra foothills. A women who had jammed her foot in a loop all the way up to her ankle bone actually broke her foot in the flip. Be careful. Specify brand and color of raft and we'll do our best. Footloops are 4 X 12-1/2" oval.

    PVC Footloops are $9.50 each. If you order six or more we will deduct one dollar per loop from your shopping cart order. We haven't figured out how to do this automatically on the cart yet - we're still learning with this new site, sorry!

  • Caviness 5' Raft or Canoe Paddle

    Caviness 5' Raft or Canoe Paddle $30.00

    Caviness Standard Paddles come in 5' lengths at $30, and also 5'6" size which is listed separately. Shafts on the Standards are fully covered in plastic so they weigh a tad more than the Basic's in ths section. We usually carry the 5' size in a black shaft - yellow blade combo as shown. Occasionally we'll have other colors, and we are happy to order other color combinations IF you want 12 or more. The Caviness raft/canoe paddles have a thicker, stronger blade than either the Carlisle Econo or Carlisle's standard grade, which we are no longer carrying. In fact, the blades are about as tough as those on the newer Carlisle commercial grade, but at a much better value.

    As of mid-March we are pretty low on this 5' size, so if you need a lot please phone us before going to the shopping cart.

    Please read the information regarding shipping on paddles in the Oar/paddle introduction.

  • PVC Rafter's Footcone

    PVC Rafter's Footcone $18.00

    Footcones for PVC rafts

    If we ever have time to get back to our sewing machine we may be able to offer our own, somewhat less expensive cones. For now we stock pvc footcones from Whitewater designs. They are $18 each; if you order six or more we will deduct one dollar per cone from your total. The shopping cart won't reflect that though.

    Please give us a first and second color choice; mostly we carry light gray and blue in the pvc cones.

RMR Whitewater Oar Raft

  • Sawyer 9' Polecat Fiberglass Oar Shaft, single piece

    Sawyer 9' Polecat Fiberglass Oar Shaft, single piece $114.00

    Please note that the actual length of this shaft is 6-1/2' (78"), and not nine feet. It is 9 feet with the blade installed. Also note that we are no longer taking shopping cart orders for single oar shafts, though as yet there is nothing in the actual cart to prevent single-shaft orders. If you want a single oar shaft please contact us by phone at 925-820-BOAT and we'll see what we can do.

    Sawyers's Polecat shafts have a beefy reinforced end where the blade hole is drilled, and these are just as strong as Sawyer's more expensive composite shafts, albeit a tad heavier.

    It is important to note that you can mix Carlisle blades with Sawyer shafts, but the overall length of a Sawyer blade is 2.5" longer than a Carlisle blade - and the length of their shafts is 2-1/2" less than Carlisle's equivalent. This means that if you mix a Sawyer brand shaft for the 9' length with a Carlisle blade, the oar will actually end up being only 8'9-1/2" long, not a full nine feet. If you put a Sawyer blade in a Carlisle shaft, you will have an extra 2-1/2".

    Two other important details regarding Sawyer shafts: (!) Since the blade end on the shaft is reinforced with a second, thicker outer layer (the striped portion on the left in the picture), and the handle end has a round protruding retainer screw head, the standard version Oar Sleeves will not slip over them unless you take out the screw. Even then it is difficult. best to purchase our slit sleeves, listed in this section. Cutting the slit in an oar sleeve with either a chop saw or a table saw is dicey work that involves holding the sleeve with your hand, or creating a mickey-mouse jig for the chop saw. Both methods are dangerous so it is not something we recommend you try to do. (2) The little set screw that helps hold the handle in protrudes from the shaft a bit. This is important because it means almost every Sawyer shaft has some degree of marring that occurs during shipping because of these set screws. They may have anything from fairly minor scuffs to deeper rubs near the handle end. Please understand this before you order because we won't ship oars back and forth for exchange because of this cosmetic defect. Even with the deeper scratches the shaft's strength is utterly unaffected, and if they did ever break at this point on the shaft, they are fully warrantied.

    If you want two-piece Sawyer shafts we will only be stocking them in the 9-1/2' and 10' sizes. We can order this size in two-piece but Sawyer's lead time is always long, and you end up with two very mismatched lengths on this short of a shaft. They are made so that the short half of the shaft WITH the blade installed equals the length of the other piece of the shaft. So the shorter half of the shaft in the case of the 9' ends up only being around 24" long, if that. Sawyer shafts are yellow (they make black, and the white shown in the photo above as well, but both are very hard to find if you drop them in the river).

    Shopping cart prices are for orders of two or more shafts. Single oar/oar shaft orders must be phoned in and are subject to a $10 handling fee. UPS charges for 30 pounds on this size due to the box length.

  • NRS Overnight Raft Rowing Frame, aluminum take-apart

    NRS Overnight Raft Rowing Frame, aluminum take-apart $695.00

    An Overnight Aluminum (six piece, holds one cooler or one drybox) has longer side bars than the Day Frame on our site. The two adjustable cross bars in front of the footrest bar are for strap-mounting a cooler or drybox (straps not included). You cannot haul both a cooler and have a second seat mount at the same time, but a passenger could sit on the cooler. 68" long, in widths starting at 48" & increasing in 6" increments.

    Note: for about the same price as the standard "Overnight", one smart option is to substitute one extra foot bar in place of the two straight front bars (the ones the cooler is nestled in, in our photo). You mount this second foot bar at the very front end where the forward straight bar is in the picture. Cut (and varnish) a piece of 3/4" plywood that spans across the low part of the two foot bars, but make it almost as wide as your raft interior. Cut notches out at the corners for a tight fit. Drill two holes each (or route notches) through the front & back edge of the plywood deck about 1.5" in from the edge. These four holes will allow you to run camlock straps down through them, around the underside of the low parts of the two footrest bars, and back up over the top of the cooler or drybox, and down & our again through the opposite holes or notches. In other words, you will need two long cam straps about 9', and they will go back and forth over the top of the cooler lid.

    Now, you have a deck to sit your cooler on, making loading easier and often - if your cooler isn't too wide - leaving leftover space for a 20 caliber rocket box or the like. Decked frames are easier to load, though it does take some labor to fit, sand, and varnish the plywood. For those who don't know, most plywood other than that ratty OSB product now use waterproof adhesive, so official "marine" plywood is no longer needed.

    Specify you raft size, and also please read the information about shipping costs in the introduction to this rowing frame section.

  • Liberty Mountain Rafter's 70' Throwbag, Cordura Bottom

    Liberty Mountain Rafter's 70' Throwbag, Cordura Bottom $45.00

    Dirty Devil is an American manufacturer in Utah that produces heavy duty Kayaker's and Rafter's throwbags with the bottom halves reinforced with 1000 denier cordura. The Rafter's Throwbag has 70' of yellow 3/8" floating rope and is $45. This is one of the best deals you will ever find on throwbags, trust us!

    We've discontinued our own throwbags for the most part. We simply can't make them for what we buy the Dirty Devil bags below for, and regular business and website maintenance eats too much time to leave leftover hours for playing on our trusty industrial sewing machine.

  • AIRE Hurricane Heavy Duty 12 volt pump with battery clamps

    AIRE Hurricane Heavy Duty 12 volt pump with battery clamps $89.00

    Our other 12 volts inflator aside from the little Dyna is the Hurricane. This unit blows a slightly higher volume of air than the Dyna pump, at a much higher pressure - 1.5 p.s.i. to 1.8 p.s.i. depending on your boat's valves. This means you won't have to do much topping off at all. There is one other pump that does as well pressure-wise, and blows even more air. That would be the LVM, but the LVM has shown to be less than reliable over the many years it's been on the market. It also costs nearly double what the Hurricane goes for.

    This pump stands up by itself, and comes with four adapters, including one that seems to work for about 80% of the valves out there. The hose is a bit too short for many applications. Your local hardware store sells various (spa & Tygon) tubing by the foot in the rope & chain section, so you can retrofit the Hurricane with something longer if you wish. A 5' piece of garden hose also works well. The Hurricane uses battery connectors for under your hood, not a cigarette lighter plug like the little Dyna. $89
