Features of Self-Bailing 12-15' Rafts

 
 


Sorted by overall size: length, width, tube size. Width and length of the center compartment are important for fitting a frame. Under construction, Hyp = hypalon coating mixed in the stated percentage with neoprene, Ure = urethane coating usually on nylon, PVC = polyvinyl-chloride coating often on dacron. Most AIRE boats have a plastic inner tube, not so indicated. Prices vary, are often negotiable, and are likely to be out-of-date.
