Recent customer's review: "What a great boat! This raft is very portable , practical and reasonable. This craft is excellent for two and I have even been able to squeeze my nine year old son in the stern. This has been an excellent tool for floating virtually inaccessible northern musky and smallmouth rivers."
Saturn fishing raft FR380 great for weekend river or lake explorations, and fly fishing. They provide stable platform for standing and fly fishing for 1 or 2 people. What makes it different from RD365 raft, is not only slightly longer hull, but also additional layers of PVC glued on a bottom of tubes and extra wide rub strakes on top of tubes. That makes FR380 raft ideal for shallow rocky bottom rivers. Large rub strakes on top of tubes and D-rings along hull are designed for rowing frame installation, turning it into a real fly fishing machine.
New FR380 raft features attachment points for optional motor mount and can take up to 2HP outboard, or electric trolling motor. Accessory tracks on both sides can be used for optional fishing rod holders, fish finders, cup holders and more. Extra fabric provided to be used as a cargo cover, or storage area for some additional gear, or both.
FR380 fly fishing raft can be purchased with or without rowing frame. Heavy duty, commercial grade, aluminum folding frame for 2 people are available. Frame can be easily break down for portable storage. Frame can be attached to raft tubes with optional lashing tie downs or straps. Rowing oars and oarlocks not included. Will need 1/2 rowing oarlocks. Frame end tubes left open, for the purpose of optional DIY frame extensions, such as cargo platform, or 3rd seat, or anchor attachment, etc.
FR380 river rafts are not self-bailers, but can be converted into self-bailers simply by cutting round holes size of a dime in bottom, along the floor perimeter.
Quick Tip! Worried about puncturing the air floor with a fishing hook, dog claws or sharp object? Get a piece of vinyl flooring or rubber mat from your local hardware store. Cut the vinyl to fit inside the boat, over the floor and your air floor will be almost indestructible! When deflating, just roll it up along with the boat for future use.
