      A:

      Rusty, the Wildcat can fill that bill for you. For overnights where you're running whitewater, I think you'll find it works best as a solo boat. The AIRE Ocelot will have similar performance, with a larger carrying capacity.

    Q:

    the frame sizing guide says for this boat . . . "custom." what does that mean for options?

      A:

      The best frame for the Wildcat is our Sport Cat Frame - http://www.nrsweb.com/shop/product.asp?pfid=1275&pdeptid=1053 - What makes the frame custom is the stock length is 88" and the Wildcat has an 84" tube top flat area. It's no problem to shorten the frame. If you're interested, just give us a call.

    Q:

    The weight capacity is rated at 607 pounds. Is this figure over and above the weight of a frame? Also, does performance tend to fall off dramatically as one approaches the weight capacity or is is more gradual?

      A:

      AIRE's weight ratings are merely an index for comparing one boat with another. They're taken for a certain immersion depth of the tubes, maybe 2"? So it's just the displacement volume flotation and not an accurate measurement for top load capacity. But of course, the more weight you put on, the deeper it'll sink and the more tube you're pushing through the water.
