Avon Mark III Pro raft & rowing package for sale
Avon Mark III Pro raft & rowing package for sale: this is the 15 ft., squareback, non self-bailing model. The rowing package includes frame with decks, 4 solid ash oars, thole pins, clips, and a foot pump. The frame is the ARTA style and breaks down into 7 pieces. The load is in the center of the boat and has a low center of gravity. Includes a poop deck (that hangs down in the stern section) where gear can be stored. The seat is a slant board, which is comfortable, and provides great leverage. The 4 oars are solid ash. The thole pins and clips are NWRS. Three oars are good and the 4th is a spare. The foot pump is brand new and is an Avon. I have rowed this design of boat on Class V technical rivers in the Sierra and also on 21-day Grand Canyon trips. Have also paddled on Class IV. All air chambers don't leak; there were some small holes onbest and this boat will last you a lifetime. For photos, go to I am asking $1900. Boat is located in Denver, Colorado.

SOTAR Raft for Sale
I am (reluctantly) selling my BRAND NEW SOTAR Elite SL 14' raft. It has NEVER been on the water. I purchased it at an auction last year, and current circumstances and common sense dictate that I sell it. My two kids are at least a few years from making it practical. It has purple tubes and a yellow floor. My asking price is $4,000, but I am willing to entertain reasonable offers. I beleive the warranty period will be for 4 more years, but we would need to confirm that. I am located in Los Angeles, but travel reasonably frequently to the San Francisco Bay Area. Please contact me if you are interested.

16' Jack's Plastic CAT - $1600

Great shape - no patches (~9 years old) 20 new D rings 1999, 24" tubes. 6' frame and 3 dryboxes, new gaskets 1999. 303ed at least yearly, Nose cones look funky (older design) but are solidly attached and functional.

Rowing frame is inch and a half, zinc-plated welded steel conduit from Cascade Outfitters and is six feet long and six feet wide. Frame ain't pretty (paint flaking) but solid.

I had it on the middle fork last year at 6.4' and it handled some big water well. This CAT will haul lots of gear. This is a well trained CAT, several GC trips with no flips.

Extra 2' frame available for $100 - 120 Qt cooler fits in this frame.
