Tributary Tomcat Tandem
Source: bought it used
Price Paid: $400
Very durable yet maneuverable inflatable. Plenty of lounging room for a float and bloat but also cargo space for multi-day whitewater adventures.
- Easy to paddle, tracks well
- Tough as nails
- No roof rack needed
- A little heavy at 55 lbs
- A little bit of a workout on flat water
When we are going to paddle a river for the first time for up to ten days this is our go-to boat. If we had to portage, we could. If we need a second cooler, it fits. If we crash through craziness, she keeps on floating!
When properly rigged the seats are pure luxury. Stability is off the charts, we often fish standing up even while in swift water. On solo trips she even makes a great luxury sleeping pad!
This a great, and affordable IK for beginners but a favorite for all experienced paddlers.
We used ours for 4 years throughout the Southwest. We bought it from an outfitter two years into its life. She truly is good as new.
