AIRE 143D Self-Bailing Raft - The 143D Self-Bailing Raft by AIRE is the perfect all around boat, with more rocker, a shorter waterline, more maneuverability and a more exciting ride. Part of AIRE's "Diminished" series, this top performance raft is quick on the water and features "diminished" bow and stern tube diameter to put you close to the action. The diminished tubes at the front and rear have the dual benefits of keeping a paddle captain closer to the water along with better wave punching. The perfect all-around raft for paddle teams, it offers excellent maneuverability in challenging conditions, and is also suitable for outfitting with an oar frame (sold separately) for extended trips. The welded PVC outer shell seams and the internal urethane bladders are the foundation of this highly durable self-bailing raft, and the lace-in floor bails water quickly for a safe ride. The zippered tubes allow for easy access to the bladders in case repairs are needed. 12 D-rings offer plenty of room for gear tie-down, and four handles make for easy carrying. The AIRE 143D Self-Bailing Raft is the perfect combination of size and maneuverability.
