Avon Mark III Pro raft & rowing package for
Avon Mark III Pro raft & rowing package for sale: this is the 15 ft.,
squareback, non self-bailing model. The rowing package includes frame
with decks, 4 solid ash oars, thole pins, clips, and a foot pump. The
frame is the ARTA style and breaks down into 7 pieces. The load is in
the center of the boat and has a low center of gravity. Includes a poop
deck (that hangs down in the stern section) where gear can be stored.
The seat is a slant board, which is comfortable, and provides great
leverage. The 4 oars are solid ash. The thole pins and clips are NWRS.
Three oars are good and the 4th is a spare. The foot pump is brand new
and is an Avon. I have rowed this design of boat on Class V technical
rivers in the Sierra and also on 21-day Grand Canyon trips. Have also
paddled on Class IV. All air chambers don't leak; there were some small
holes onbest and this boat will last you a lifetime. For photos, go to
http://members.aol.com/polywogs/Avonpro.jpg. I am asking $1900. Boat
is located in Denver, Colorado.

SOTAR Raft for Sale
I am (reluctantly) selling my BRAND NEW SOTAR Elite SL 14' raft. It has
NEVER been on the water. I purchased it at an auction last year, and
current circumstances and common sense dictate that I sell it. My two
kids are at least a few years from making it practical. It has purple
tubes and a yellow floor. My asking price is $4,000, but I am willing
to entertain reasonable offers. I beleive the warranty period will be
for 4 more years, but we would need to confirm that. I am located in
Los Angeles, but travel reasonably frequently to the San Francisco Bay
Area. Please contact me if you are interested.
