Rafts & Paddling Gear
Whitewater Rafts

AIRE "D" Series 156D Self-Bailing Rafts


Product Details

Aire's 156D series rafts are agile, versatile boats that can accommodate a paddle team-run down the local river or enough gear for an expedition. Diminished tubes in the stern and bow give you more cargo room than other boats in the same size range. The 156D also makes a great fishing boat when equipped with an NRS Fishing Raft Frame. AIRE raft tubes and floors are equipped with bombproof PVC-coated material that's thicker than other brands for superior durability. Internal urethane AIREcells provide an extra measure of strength, durability and safety. The piano hinge style of floor lacing, found in all AIRE rafts, provides quick self-bailing and a plethora of options for getting just the right placement of the thwarts. Repair kit included.

Price : $5199


Whitewater Rafts & Gear Checklist

Sure You Need It? : Read the Whitewater Raft Guide to make doubly sure you need such a large and expensive boat. Often, a smaller inflatable kayak or inflatable raft will meet your needs.
Don't Overdo It : It IS tempting to get a boat larger than you think you'll need "just to be safe." However, smaller and lighter rafts are more maneuverable.
Don't Forget the Pump! Unless you want to spend hours inflating the raft manually, save your lungs by getting a raft pump.
Don't forget rope and tie-downs. You need something to lash dry bags down to your raft. And keep it lashed at ALL times!! Visit the Raft Accessory page to find stuff you might need.
Keep Your Gear Dry! Be sure to absolutely, positively get a dry bag. Otherwise, you'll have the fun of trying to dry out your gear over a campfire or buying a new iPod or cell phone. Visit the Dry Bags section to find various bags that meet your needs..
