Raft Inflatable Kayak Cataraft Free Shipping

Update: As of 2019 all Maxxon pontoons and rafts will feature welded seams for an increased lifespan. Maxxon is trying to stock two different diameters on thse twelve foot cat tubes, 20" and 25". This listing is for the 20" diameter, but if you want the bigger ones they are just $20 more, so phone us if you want to go with those.

If you are making a whitewater or fishing cat frame from scratch, utilizing the 25" diameter will decrease your draft a bit, and increase capacity if you often boat with a passenger. Since anglers tend to fish at low flows, drafting less is a good thing. However, if you tend to go solo & light in high flow whitewater, the smaller 20" diameter will tend to be less flippy. Also, for those looking to replace existing tubes on a fishing rig, most use 20” to 21” pontoons. The new larger size may not work. Sometimes the only way to be sure is to cut out a 25” circle of cardboard and hold it up to the frame. It is your responsibility to do this before ordering. If you fail to do so and then realize they won’t work with your frame, please understand there will be a substantial restocking fee and you will also be responsible for UPS both directions.

The rest of the info below pertains to the original pre-welded product, but we are going to leave it for now until we have time for more extensive text updates.

For complete Maxxon information see the write-up's for the 14' & 16' sizes (the P14+ Fatty and P16). As noted in those descriptions, the 12' size is a so-so seller for us. Therefore, we do not normally keep them on the shelf. Maxxon almost always has them so we can have them sent direct, meaning the delivery time is not effected. It's best to phone us at 925-820-BOAT on the twelve's before going to the shopping cart, so that we can check stock.

Rocky Mountain no longer makes a 12' size, and AIRE's 12' Wave Destroyer & 13' wildcat are more than double the cost of the Maxxon, so these are the only twelve pontoons in this price range. As always, please note that pricing is for the tubes only, not the frame or accessories.

The P12's are 20.5" in diameter, and 59 pounds per pair. The appearance is slightly different now since there is no longer a circumference seam near the bow and stern - they are a continuous curve design similar to, but not as rockered as, the AIRE Wildcat tubes. They come with a mediocre foot pump, but that foot pump does have the twist-in valve adapter on the end of the hose. Should that pump give out at some point, please remember to save the last few inches of the hose & adapter because it is one we don't normally stock.

Free shipping is via UPS ground to the lower 48 states only; if you are in Alaska these are available in Anchorage and if you are in Hawaii... well, you should be looking at our kayak pages! Please note that our shopping cart will show a UPS charge, but this only authorizes your credit card. When we capture the funds we will remove the UPS fee. you are also welcome to phone in your order.
