Can you tell me how good it will do on passage, in harbor and most importantly, being grounded as a show for it's toughness and quality?
Thor Heyerdahl says he wouldn't be caught dead in a crappy raft like that going across the Pacific to Tahiti. This is what a real blue water raft looks like.

Re: Is this raft bluewater seaworthy?

That man with the suit obviously paid $$$ for his raft, and the world is suffering for all the trees he harvested. Besides, look at his indentured crew!
My raft, on the other hand, used only pruning from larger trees, thus increasing their growth and their health. I also tested for bark beetle, thus keeping the forest environment healthy.
I employ no man, and I sail the seas bravely and with only Wilson to keep me company.
