10% Off All Accesrrories! The Tributary 9.5 HD 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.
  • Now with a sporty new look and beefier 42 oz./2000 denier PVC material.
  • 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.
  • Seven panel ends, with slightly diminishing tube diameters, 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.
  • Repair Kit Included.

    Can this raft be paddled by one person or is it too wide?

      Richard, the boat is 5' 4" wide, so the center line of the boat is 32". One person, if they're athletic, can scoot side-to-side to paddle it.

    What size is this rolled up?
    Asked on 3/11/2015 by Looking to fish

    1 answer



      The dimensions of boat box are 29" x 22.5" x 15.25", so the rolled dimensions will be slightly less than that.

    How much is an additional thwart. I assume it cams in like the one that comes with the boat?

      Scott, the thwart is $159.00. We don't stock it; give us a call to order, 800.635.5202. The thwarts strap into the floor lacing.
