You've got three great choices with the AIRE 156 Self Bailing Raft:
R stands for Round. The R series is AIRE's traditional round boat design. With their broader beams, larger tube diameters and longer waterlines, these are the most stable of all AIRE rafts. R Series rafts are ideally suited for families with children and epic three-week trips on the Grand Canyon. R series is AIRE's most stable designed sized raft and is great with a frame or for paddling.
The R is for you if:
D stands for Diminished. With diminished radius tubes in the bow and stern, the D series is quick on the water and is a performance oriented raft. The diminished design of this raft gets paddlers and passengers up close and personal with the river without sacrificing stability. The D series is the best, most maneuverable all-around raft to run with a paddle team or with a frame. This modle is a raft guide favorite.
The D is for you if:
E stands for the elliptical. The E series rafts feature a high-rising, pointed bow and a squared stern that makes a nice platform for a paddle captain. AIRE's E series rafts rise 2 inches higher in the bow than in the R series. They also have a slightly narrower beam and smaller diameter tubes, allowing these boats to ride high on the crest of waves for maximum thrills and maneuverability. The E series is a favorite choice of outfitters on narrow, rocky and technical rivers such as the Ocoee, Gauley and New.
The E is for you if:
