Description

The 10-1/2' Otter Livery non-bailer from NRS is a fine choice for fly fishers or rafters who run mostly moderate pool-drop rivers. As a fishing raft, with a rowing frame, it's best as a two person craft (one rower, one angler). As a paddle raft it will work fine with four adults as long as they aren't all huge. 700 pounds total would be a good maximum. The Otter Livery 106 is five feet wide, and weighs in at only 62 pounds. Not much problem to lift out of a trunk when it's rolled up - and it rolls up very tiny.

There are two main chambers, plus the thwarts, and the tube diameter is 16-1/2". The kick at the front and back is 7". These have a five year warranty and come with six D-rings, and we carry extras if you need to add more. The bow & stern D-s also incorporate lift handles. The only color for the Livery Otters is blue. Top & bottom chafers are standard, and if you want to row it will take a frame up to 5' long and 4' wide. Seven foot oars are ideal for this size boat.

Up above we mentioned "moderate" difficulty rivers as being most appropriate for this little raft, but plenty of people have run pool-drop class IV rivers in 10' non-bailers (including us many times), they just aren't ideal for continuous high flow runs.

We do not stock the NRS standard floor (non-selfbailing) rafts because these do not sell in big numbers, so please call for availability before proceeding to our shopping cart.
