I have one that I'll trade a viewing for a hunt.

Kidding. The floor is very solid and it's a try ride.

We've got one of these:

Used it about 5 times last year just floating around. Would consider letting it go as we want to get into kayaks. It is a really stable and well made raft and I was able to easily stand up and walk around while floating the hooch while my fiance paddled.

Default Rafts

FishTaco, would like to see your raft and come fall might even let you shoot over a setter. Gone to NC in a another week and have a honey do list this weekend before we leave. Which one do you own? Mostly interested in the smithcraft since it seems roomier.

I had a Saturn raft for years.... well pleased with it in every way. It's made out of heavy raft material. I hit about every sharp rock on the tuck river with it and no damage.

These all seem like good boats. I suppose it just a matter of preference, tradeoffs, and compromises. I personally prefer a driftboat to a raft for a bunch of reasons but I admit that I get launch envy. I'm not doing this with my driftboat.
