    NRS River Cat 16 Cataraft - With legendary cargo capacity and performance, the River Cat 16 cataraft from NRS will carry you and all your stuff to that secluded river campsite. Designed for extraordinary performance, agility and stability, the precisely sized continuous-curve tubes enhance capacity, ride and maneuverability. 25-inch tubes keep you floating high and manuevering swiftly, even under heavy loads. Heavy-duty Pennel Orca material is abrasion, chemical and UV-resistant for unmatched durability, and extended wear patches on the tops of the tubes allow for frames up to 13 feet long. Stainless steel D-rings provide a bombproof anchor system for your frame. Three air chambers in each tube give you maximum security in emergency situations, and trouble-free Leafield C7 Valves ensure easy inflation/deflation. Whether you're pursuing trophy fish, the perfect campsite or whitewater adventure, the NRS River Cat 16 cataraft delivers.

    Please note: Frame is not included. Maximum frame length is 156 inches.

    Bought these tubes and a custom Fat Cat frame. Just returned from the maiden voyage down the Grande Ronde...It performed beautifully. Makes a great fishing platform for two steelhead anglers and a rower...Plus room for all the camping gear and a 65 quart Yeti. It rows great, handles great, and trailers great on a 10 foot ATV trailer. This is truly the best cat money can buy!

    I've used one of these for 2 seasons now. 200 miles of Green River, the San Juan, etc. 12' custom NRS breakdown 6 bay frame; but I've used my little Ally Cat frame on it for dailies too. Can't say enough good about it. We've had easily 1200 pounds of people and gear on it for 2 weeks and zero issues. Handles shallows great. Blasts thru the big stuff without hardly getting wet. Got into a camp race one afternoon, as we chugged by a 16' Aire Jag, the guy asked me if I had a motor on the thing. It flies across the flat stretches and is still more maneuverable than any donut boat I've ever rowed. THREE chambers and more carry capacity than all the cats I looked at. If you need a big cat, you've found your boat.

    I have used this cat on class 3 rapids with no problem. By adding chairs I was able to take a quadriplegic down the daily run above Moab. Was a great experience for all of those involved.
