This is the perfect raft for the Eagle River and Shuswap Lake. We’ve had one for 4 years now and we love it. It’s not hard to make a few modifications to improve your experience with the Mariner 4. We constructed a carpeted hardwood floor for ours in an afternoon. In fact there are many things people have done to modify their mariner 4 for stability, fishing, and more.
You can also get a motor mount for a trolling motor which is very handy.
