Not every boater is on the river 50-plus days a year, like guides and professionals who need well-built boats that can take a beating year after year. Chances are you won’t put your own boat through those kinds of paces, but you still, of course, want a high quality craft. The Tributary line is your answer. Made from high quality materials using designs proven in big water conditions, costs are kept down where feasible so they won’t break the bank. On the market for 10 years now, and it’s kind of ironic that nearly as many outfitters as private boaters now use them.
The Fourteen HD is big enough for extended trips when used with an oar frame, but there’s also plenty of excitement and adventure to be had crashing through waves with a paddle team. Comes standard with 2 strap in thwarts.
