AIRE's DD Series 16ft Raft can be rigged as a massive gear-hauler during week-long river trips or set up as a large paddle raft. The boat's massive dimensions may lead you to believe it's an immobile behemoth, but thanks to its aggressive rocker profile and double diminished tubes, it's a surprisingly nimble giant that's able to maneuver quickly and slam through holes and waves with relative ease--it also doesn't hurt to have eight paddles pushing you through. AIRE built the DD with its AIREcell construction, which consists of urethane air bladders encased in a burly PVC fabric that's reinforced along the base for added protection from underlying obstacles. The raft doesn't ship with any thwarts, but it can be set up with either two when you're setting it up with a oar frame, dry boxes, and coolers, or it can be set up with four to accommodate a paddle team of up to eight people.
