The Tributary 9.5 Self-Bailing Raft offers an exhilarating ride for paddlers in all levels of whitewater. A classic creeking raft that's easy to ferry and stable enough to run steep drops and big waves.
The single thwart installs with cam straps and adjusts to give paddlers secure positioning in the boat. Or you can leave the thwart out and install a small rowing frame.
An optional second adjustable thwart can be added for more support, or to brace a third paddler in the stern.
Full diameter tube throughout the boat, along with 7 piece ends creates a more efficient raft by allowing the bow and stern rise to be more gradual.
The welded PVC outer shell seams and the internal urethane bladders are the foundation of this highly durable self-bailing raft.
Zippered tubes allow easy access to the urethane bladders in case repairs are needed.
A four chamber design gives added safety in case of emergencies.
It can carry the four of you. How are you planning to propel it? You and your wife could certainly paddle it. Or, you could put a small frame on it and row it. Give us a call, 800.635.5202 or drop a line to email@example.com for more help getting this dialed in.

I put five adults in there and it was tight but not terribly uncomfortable. Regularly used with only two but fits four pretty well.

Would the Cataract mini mag oars be suitable with this raft equipped with a longhorn rowing frame?
The oars would be strong enough for this size boat. However, our oar mounts have a 5/8" hole for oarlock or pin. Our oarlocks that will work on the Mini Mags have a 1/2" diameter shank. While you could figure a way to make these smaller diameter oars fit our full-size oarlocks, you'll be better off with full size oar shafts
