NRS E-139D Dodger XL Self-Bailing Rafts


Product Details

Whether you're searching for big thrills, big fish or multiday miles the 13'9" NRS E-139D Dodger XL fills the bill. The diminishing-tube design creates a splashy, wave-punching ride and extra cargo space. Rowing or paddling, this is one artful Dodger! Modeled after the original Riken design, 19" side tubes taper to 17.5" at the bow and stern. Tapered "diminishing" tubes provide more interior cargo room, increased splash, easier paddling and excellent wave-punching ability. Lower rocker provides a splashy, fun ride and a larger sight picture for the fisherman. Add a Bighorn I frame and you're ready for multiday adventures. Put on the NRS Fishing Frame and let the fishing fun begin. Add an optional third thwart to easily take on 8-9 paddlers. Heavy-duty Pennel OrcaA(R) material is super abrasion, chemical and UV-resistant for unmatched durability. Full-coverage HD40 floor armor on the bottoms and sides of the tubes guards your boat from the wear and tear of boulders and beaches. Four main tube air chambers give you extra security in emergency situations. Self-bailing floor with quick-draining holes allows you to leave the bucket at home. 14 2" D-rings and 6 handles make rigging and launching the E-139D a snap. Trouble-free Leafield(TM) C7 Valves ensure easy inflation/deflation of the tubes, thwarts and floor, and the Leafield A6 Pressure Relief Valve protects the floor. The NRS BAT(TM) (Batten Attachment Thwart system) lets you easily add or remove thwarts to accommodate paddlers or a rowing frame. Built outfitter tough, this may be the last raft the private boater will ever need to buy. 10-year retail warranty, 5-year commercial.

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..
