10% Off All Accesrrories! The bombproof, compact NRS E-130 raft works great for small paddle crews, rowing frames, or our NRS Fishing Frame. An extra foot in length over the 120 allows for additional paddlers or more gear.
  • With 18" tubes and a 6'2" width, the E-130 is quick and agile without sacrificing stability.
  • Will easily accommodate 6-8 paddlers with optional third thwart.
  • Heavy-duty Pennel Orca® material is super abrasion, chemical and UV-resistant for unmatched durability.
  • Full-coverage HD40 floor armor on the bottoms and sides of the tubes guards your boat from the wear and tear of boulders and beaches.
  • Four main tube air chambers give you extra security in emergency situations.
  • Self-bailing floor with quick-draining holes allows you to leave the bucket at home.
  • 14 2" D-rings and 6 handles make rigging and launching the E-130 a snap.
  • Trouble-free Leafield™ C7 Valves ensure easy inflation/deflation of the tubes, thwarts and floor, and the Leafield A6 Pressure Relief Valve protects the floor.
  • The NRS BAT™ (Batten Attachment Thwart system) lets you easily add or remove thwarts to accommodate paddlers or a rowing frame.
  • Built outfitter tough, this may be the last raft the private boater will ever need to buy.
  • 10-year retail warranty, 5-year commercial.

How To: Inflate a Raft (2:00)

You've invested in a good boat; you want to make sure it lasts a long time. Proper inflation techniques go a long way toward protecting the raft's seams and the baffles between chambers from strain and damage. In this video, Josh Gile, NRS Repairs, goes over steps for pumping up to recommended levels while keeping equal air pressure on both sides of each internal baffle. It's simple stuff, but doing it right is important boat longevity insurance.

How To: Fold an Inflatable Boat or SUP for Storage (2:33)

One of the great things about inflatable rafts, catarafts, kayaks and SUP boards is that when not in use they can be deflated, taking up very little storage space. In this video the NRS Repairs crew gives you the tips and techniques to minimize stress on seams and material while they're being folded and tucked away.

    Is it possible to order this raft with the HD40 installed on the topside in the area that would contact a fishing frame? Like on my current 13ft Otter 130?

      Because it's the same color, it's hard to see in the photos, but there's an extra layer of the boat's material on top of the side tubes for excellent wear protection. The black wear patch material on your Otter is also boat material, not HD40. On the E-boats this extra material also extends up on the first up-kick panels for additional protection.

    Do you have any videos on thwart installation?

      Adrienne, we don't, but it's quite simple. Examine the thwart; the top is wider than the bottom. With boat and thwart deflated, line up the slots in the end of the thwart with slots on the inside of the tube. Slide the plastic batten through the slots, with the batten's raised lip facing in to the center compartment. You can tie the cord on the batten to the holes on the patch on the thwart end; or you can tie it to the hole on the lip end of the batten, for extra security.

    Which end is the front? The end with the pressure relief valve or the end without>

      Doug, the shape of the boat is symmetrical, same on both ends. Many think of the end with the floor valves as the back. Outfitters who install footcups would certainly run the boat with the valves in the back. I, on the other hand run my E-150 with the valves toward the front; because I mostly do multiday trips and I want those valves accessible, rather than buried under gear. So, boater's choice; you decide.
