Whitewater Rafts

Tributary 9.5 HD Self-Bailing Rafts


Product Details

The Tributary 9.5 HD Self-Bailing Raft offers an exhilarating ride for paddlers in all levels of whitewater. A classic creeking raft that's easy to ferry and stable enough to run steep drops and big waves. Now with a sporty new look and beefier 42 oz./2000 denier PVC material. The single thwart installs with cam straps and adjusts to give paddlers secure positioning in the boat. Or you can leave the thwart out and install a small rowing frame. An optional second adjustable thwart can be added for more support, or to brace a third paddler in the stern. Seven panel ends, with slightly diminishing tube diameters, creates a more efficient raft by allowing the bow and stern rise to be more gradual. The welded PVC outer shell seams and the internal urethane bladders are the foundation of this highly durable self-bailing raft. Zippered tubes allow easy access to the urethane bladders in case repairs are needed. Repair Kit Included.

Price : $1649


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..
