The T. Rex Mini Drifter is the ultimate two-person fishing raft, says US manufacturer Creek Company, adding that the new boat “handles like a sportscar.”
The heavy duty, commercial grade craft comprises a 9ft 8in self-bailing hull that is 5ft 6in wide with 18in pontoons.
The robust raft also includes a high-pressure, drop-stitch floor that, according to the Colorado company, gives the impression of standing in a drift boat.
The seven panel ends have a 9in rise and the custom NRS frame is fitted with a leaning bar. Weighing just 115lb, the raft is equipped with two-piece Carlisle oars with 8in Outfitter blades and aluminium oarlocks.
No trailer is required as the raft fits into the back of a truck or on a roof rack. The full package includes the raft, oars, oarlocks, pump, patch kit and a carry/storage bag.
Based in Steamboat Springs, the Creek Company manufactures inflatable pontoons, float tubes, stand-up paddle boards and fly fishing accessories. It began shipping the T. Rex Mini Drifter in May.
