- The Otter 142 is a versatile design that works perfectly for any fishing excursion or multi-day trip down the river.
- High quality Pennel Orca® tubes and floor, HD40 tube armor and a frame chafe guard make this one heck of a tough boat.
- A three chamber tube construction ensures you have buoyancy in case of an accident.
- Reattach the two removable thwarts to make this into a great paddle boat for the whole family.
- 8 stainless steel 2" D-rings and 4 carrying handles round out this great boat.
- The NRS Fishing Raft Frame is ideal for a day out on the river catching fish. You get a comfortable rowers seat and a raised Angler Swivel Seat that puts the angler up high for ease of casting.
- The Stern Seat Mount gives you room for another angler in the back of the boat, with an Angler Swivel Seat that allows you to fish at any angle.
- Front and rear casting platforms give you a place to stand up with solid, secure footing.
- A U-Shaped Thigh Bar gives added stability for the front angler while the Rear "Y" Thigh Bar does the same in the back.
- The NRS Anchor Mount is a great tool for staying in the spot where the fish are. The pulley system brings the operation of the anchor within easy reach of the rower. Anchor and rope sold separately (3/8" polypropylene rope is recommended)
- Two 9' Carlisle Oars, with 6.5" Outfitter Blades, are tough and durable; giving you the power to keep you in place or get you back upstream.
- Two Oar Sleeves give you a quieter system while a pair of Oar Rights keep your oar at the right angle to the water for maximum efficiency with minimum effort.
- Seven 3' NRS 1" HD Straps will secure the frame to your boat.

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.
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.

Q:What is the draft of this boat loaded with 1,000 lbs of people and gear?Asked on 3/3/2013 by Dick from Walla Walla
A:Dick, we don't measure that for our boats. This article explains why - http://www.nrsweb.com/boating_tips/BoatWeightCapacity.asp - It is safe to say that the 142 can carry that load and perform fine on the water.Answered on 3/4/2013 by Clyde from NRS
