This raft is exactly what I wanted. I bought it for rafting down the Truckee River in Reno and Lake Tahoe. It is tough and durable and no problems over the rocks and rapids. I plan on taking it further up the river next spring (should be a tougher ride).
I have had as many as 4 adults and 2 small children on a 3 hour trip down the Truckee (that's as full as it gets).

[...] This boat is nice and rigid, with a good streamlined hull shape for low drag, and both these qualities are important for sailing. It comes with a good pump and pressure guage, which really helps for proper inflation. It's designed for higher pressure than most mass-market inflatable boats. All around, it seems really well designed and well made. The closest comparable products on the market are the Intex Mariner (same size, but much heavier due to solid floor) and the Intex Seahawk II (smaller and a little lighter). Both of these also sail well and cost less. But this is better made and has the space of the Mariner without being very much heavier than the Seahawk II. All in all, it's a very welcome addition to the marketplace.

We took this boat to Panama city, used it for 8 days, sometimes in 3 foot seas, 150 yards from the shore. Had me, wife and 5 and 8 year old boys fishing in it. Anchored up with the 15 lbs anchor and set around among white capping waves. The boat is comfortable and rigid and took it well. Thought about buying Intex Marirer 4 but after using Navigator I don't want another boat. Multiple reasons: 1. The biggest reason for me,- oarlocks are unbreakable. If you are in rough ocean with the family and your boat has 1 set of plastic swivel oarlocks (and that's what Intex Mariner has) and one of them breaks,- I think you are in trouble... With Navigator this is not an issue. 2. Intex Mariner's oarlocks are positioned towards the middle of the boat which dictates you where to sit, so you can not sit on the tube. Navigator has 2 sets of oarlocks: at the front or in the back. I sit on the tube in the front (saving inside space for gear), right next to the front D-ring (which I use to tie the anchor to), I paddle (sometimes in the wind or current) and I lower down the anchor and tie it to the D-ring right away (before the wind takes me to where I don't want to be): and I don't have to move or ask somebody else (one of the kids?) to tie the anchor. 3. Intex Mariner's floor may be nice but it would be too heavy for my situation. Carrying it up and down the hotels stairs to the 4th floor would be hard. Navigator 500 is roomy yet much lighter then Mariner and we were doing just fine without hard floor.

Here are some minor disadvantages: 1. Paddles are like toys for kids: don't even think about going out in the ocean with them: you'll be crying for help. Buy yourself a $50 set of 6 foot solid shaft, 1 3/8 SeaSence oars: wow they feel solid!

THE GOOD:

The raft itself is amazing. Construction is uber good. valves on sides don't let any air slip and are super easy to use, you can even stand up in the raft on the water. Oar locks are solid, engine mounts are solid, oar holders are solid, fishing pole holders are solid; everything is welded on well.

THE BAD:

Included accessories are crap. The pump and attachments are reasonable. Seat cushions are also reasonable although only made of 1 layer PVC - not like the rest of the boat. Oars are garbage - one has already warped (it did not get left out in sun or abused), my pressure gauge has not worked from the beginning, the bag to hold the boat and the small bag on the boat are both of poor construction and poor materials.

The idea that this boat will accommodate 5 people and 880lbs is ludicrous. Amazon I noticed you already corrected the weight capacity to 830 (although it's 837 technically), but you still have this listed as capable of carrying 5 adults, the boat says 4 adults right on the PVC. 4 adults and light gear would be acceptable river rafting when at least 2 adults are sitting on the side. Fishing is another story all together. I would say 2 adults can fit comfortably with a motor on the back, cooler in the middle, and your fishing gear.

THE UGLY:

If you are starting from scratch and thinking about adding a trolling motor on this boat, it gets expensive fast...

In theory, this is a great boat and there have been a lot of great reviews for it. However, if you get a lemon pressure gauge like I did, beware of overinflating. redstar traders stopped making boats and you will not get a refund, repair, or new boat through them. the lesson is to make sure you inflate the raft several times during your amazon.com return policy period to test the accuracy of the pressure gauge otherwise you will be out $300+ like me. The problem was that the pressure gauge (that you must use with the boat because there is a special connector piece) was way off calibrated and underestimating the actual pressure. The result...a nice loud disheartening pop. Now, the boat still works but chamber 1 and chamber 2 are one big chamber and I don't think that is something you want to boat your family around in.
