The AIRE Lion 16 Cataraft is an excellent choice for extended river trips where hauling equipment and sustenance is essential. Tubes only, frame and accessories sold separately. With 27.5" tubes this boat is incredibly stable and has very shallow draft for low water trips. The Lion 16 carries a load comparable to the Leopard, an 18' cataraft. 1800 lbs. is a lot of food and gear, you might even have leftovers. Four air chambers are an added safety feature in emergency situations.
