Inflatable Kayaks: The Rocky Mountain Rafts RMR IK-123 Animas Whitewater Inflatable Kayak is a new product for Rocky Mountain this year. The Animas spec's are 10'3" long, 38" wide, with 11" tubes, though going by the prototype we saw each of these numbers seem a smidge high (more like 10' even, 37" width, and 10.5" tubes). The weight we're not quite sure on yet because we didn't put the prototype on the scale, but a ballpark guess is 38 pounds. RMR IK-123 Animas Inflatable Kayak



Rafts: A new smaller size, 10' 6", from Rocky Mountain rafts is available for 2014. The self bailing RMR 105 SB Storm Whitewater Raft has three main air chambers and two removable thwarts. Leafield valves, including the pressure relief valve on the floor, are used throughout. Along with the newer Maxxon mini nine foot R2 model, 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. RMR 105 SB Storm Whitewater Raft



Catarafts: The AIRE Sabertooth 12 Frameless Cataraft takes no-frame and it's 12 feet 5 inches long. This paddle boat AIRE introduced in late 2013. The main tube diameter is 20.5”, and the bow & stern rise is about 8”. The Sabertooth cataraft is not as radically rockered as the wire frame in the 2014 AIRE catalog indicates. There are four lift handles, and the width is 5’6” like the AIRE Puma. The exact weight capacity is hard to carve in stone since it depends how much draft you are willing to have, but 600 pounds is probably a good upper number, and 550 would be better. Base fabric is 1670 denier like all AIRE rafts & cats, and the warranty is a full ten years. AIRE gives the weight at 80 pounds; our scale says about 83. Call it 81-1/2 !
