10% Off All Accesrrories! 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.
  • Repair Kit Included.

    Q:

    Is it ok to inflate deflate this for every use? I notice most rafts are taken by truck/trailer already inflated, is this to prevent wear or just convenience?

      A:

      Tyler, certainly the best way to store an inflatable is softly inflated. However, rolling it loosely for transport isn't a problem. Transporting inflated on a trailer is a great way to minimize time at the put-in. Here's a video on storage - http://www.nrsweb.com/shop/Video_Library.asp?vid=379&group=4&loadvid=1

    Q:

    What is the weight capacity of this raft? I am hoping for an ultra-light raft (oar boat) for two people for bare minimum overnights.

      A:

      AIRE list "load capacity" of 800 pounds. This is merely an index for comparing their boats to one another. I believe it's based on the water displacement of about 1/3 of the boats tubes.

    Q:

    How many people does this raft hold? I am looking at this raft for my wife and two small children.

      A:

      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 service@nrsweb.com for more help getting this dialed in.

      A:

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

    Q:

    Would the Cataract mini mag oars be suitable with this raft equipped with a longhorn rowing frame?
    Asked on 1/17/2013 by Steelie D

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      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

      A:

      Yes. The 48" NRS Longhorn Frame would be perfect.
