"While the 13' Frameless Cataraft CR385 showcased some limitations during my recent whitewater adventure, its positive aspects still managed to leave a lasting impression. The cataraft's inflatable pontoons and built-in air chambers provided satisfactory stability and maneuverability on whitewater rivers up to Class IV. However, I noticed that the heavy-duty PVC fabric, although reasonably durable, required careful handling to prevent potential punctures. Additionally, the self-bailing system, although functional, occasionally required manual adjustment to ensure optimal drainage. Despite these minor setbacks, the CR385's ease of transport and overall performance make it a commendable choice for those seeking thrilling river experiences."

While the CR385 frameless cataraft offers remarkable stability and performance, it's important to note that it is designed for white water rivers up to Class IV.
