Inflatable rafts are lightweight, easy to store and transport, and come in various types for different uses. They are made of plastic or PVC-coated fabric and have multiple air-filled chambers. They are used for recreation, rescue, and fishing, and come in different sizes and designs. When purchasing an inflatable raft, consider its intended use, size, durability, and weight capacity, and always have personal flotation devices for everyone on board.

An inflatable raft is a type of boat that floats when filled with air. There are many different types of inflatable rafts, which are designed for different uses. They are usually made of plastic or plastic-coated fabric. They have multiple chambers that are filled with air. Depending on the type of raft, this can be done by blowing into a valve, using a hand or electric pump, or an air compressor. Inflatable rafts are lighter, cheaper, and easier to store and transport than conventional boats, making them a popular choice for recreation, rescue, and other purposes.

There are many different types of inflatable rafts. The less expensive types are made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic and are sold at sporting goods stores, marine supply stores, and seasonally at drug and discount stores. These rafts are designed for rafting down a river, light paddling, or summer fun on calm waters. They come in different sizes that can accommodate different amounts of people and equipment. Kayaks are another type of inflatable raft. These are primarily used for recreational paddling on rivers, lakes, or the ocean and hold one or two people. Some inflatable kayaks are appropriate for whitewater rafting.

Some inflatable rafts are made of multi-layered PVC-coated fabric that is more rigid and suitable for use with an outboard motor. These rafts can be used in a variety of ways and in more versatile locations than their soft plastic counterparts. Often these inflatable rafts are used to go between larger vessels anchored offshore or in a harbor and the shoreline or pier. They are also commonly used for fishing. They often have benches to sit on and may have a hard floor. These are also the most commonly used type of inflatable rafts in rescue situations. Lifeboats are another type of inflatable raft. These are kept on board a larger vessel to be used in an emergency.

Inflatable rafts are also used for whitewater rafting. These boats come in many sizes and are also made of multi-layered and reinforced PVC coated fabrics. Some are designed to be rowed by one person and carry gear and passengers in front, others to carry rowing passengers. Outboard motors can be attached to these rafts. These boats are self-emptying, which means there are holes in the raft floor to drain any water that enters the boat as you navigate whitewater rapids.

If you are considering purchasing an inflatable raft, there are several things to consider. First, what will you be using it for and how often? What temperature and weather conditions will you use it in? Second, what size raft will you need? How durable is the raft you are considering? Always make sure not to exceed the weight capacity of a raft. To be safe on the water, always have a personal flotation device for each person in the raft at all times.
