During my recent whitewater expedition with the 13' Frameless Inflatable Cataraft CR385, I encountered a few drawbacks that didn't overshadow its positive attributes. The cataraft's inflatable pontoons and built-in air chambers offered decent stability and control, making it suitable for moderate whitewater up to Class IV. However, I found the heavy-duty PVC fabric, although puncture-resistant, to be less durable than anticipated, especially when navigating rocky sections. The self-bailing system, although effective, required occasional attention to ensure optimal performance. Despite these limitations, the CR385's compact and portable design, along with its versatility, makes it a viable option for adventurers seeking thrilling river escapades."

"The 13' Frameless Inflatable Cataraft CR385 is a true gem for whitewater enthusiasts. Its innovative design, featuring inflatable pontoons and built-in air chambers, offered an exceptional balance of agility and stability on Class IV rapids. The robust PVC fabric, complemented by rub strake protectors, provided the necessary durability and resistance to ensure a worry-free experience. The cataraft's self-bailing system and versatile drop stitch floor allowed me to adapt to different river conditions seamlessly. With its reliable construction and thoughtful design, this cataraft is a must-have for anyone seeking thrilling adventures on the water."

Surprisingly, the 13' Frameless Cataraft CR385 exceeded my expectations. I was initially skeptical, but it turned out to be much better than a cheap kayak toy. I'm pleased with it.

I'm thrilled with the versatility of the CR385 frameless cataraft. Its simple yet effective design, featuring inflatable pontoons and built-in perpendicular air chambers, provides excellent stability and maneuverability. The heavy-duty rub strake protects the bottom of the tubes from any potential damage caused by rocks, giving me peace of mind during my white water excursions. Whether I'm rowing or floating along, the CR385 never fails to impress with its performance and reliability. Don't miss out on this incredible cataraft!
