A 14' raft is a great all-around size for both rowing and paddle boating with a group of friends. The 143D has a continuous curve and diminished tube diameter in the bow and stern, which makes it our most agile 14' raft. It's is easy to maneuver in whitewater and has plenty of room for a 5-7 person paddle team. Outfitted with a frame, the 143D is a sporty rowing option for extended trips on wild rivers. This raft is a perfect combination of size and maneuverability.
