Since I purchased a 12' Otter in April I've had the chance to run it a few times and couldn't be happier with it for the price I paid. I compared quite a few different boats and am very happy with my decision. I run the Arkansas with it a lot and tracks well and handles larger loads. My only complaint would be some more protection on the underside but I've had a few scrapes with the low water and the bottoms holding up awesome!
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Taken down the ocoee river on all three sections 6 times over a 5 day period. guided by myself and my brother. The bottom held up well and has very little wear and tear so it should last for a long time. But i would feel more comfortable if it had the black abrasion guards on the entire boat bottom instead of just the tubes. otherwise incredible raft. looking forward to next season and bigger rivers.
