Our webmaster is one, but he's on his way to visit striper country right now. We'll have his attention at the spring clave next weekend. He's posted some nice pics of the watermaster floating the Cascade rivers in the pacific northwest and loves the raft. Also favored by some hard core anglers I know in the Great Lakes for portability and ease of fishing through a progression of pools.

I want to try them for hopping around on shoals this summer while sight fishing the flats.

i have floated the snake, grand ronde, missouri, clark fork, yakima, spokane, coeur'd alene and columbia rivers with the boat. also many lakes. the roughest river is the biggest one which is the columbia. they have 3 sizes now and the front is v-shaped. when i bought my 2 boats 15 years ago only one size was available and the front was square so when it is windy water comes over the front. they are light ,26 lbs. and fit in a bag with pack straps.
