"As for on river repair, its another mixed bag for bitchithane. Many times the crack is under the seat where its hard to get the bitch on. Unless you have a screwdriver to take your entire seat out, you are hosed. Even if you did have a screwdriver, are you going to take the seat out on the side of the river and have your crew wait 30-40 minutes while you repair your boat? Most likely you will simply paddle the cracked titanic of a boat out and patch it up at home."
Just remember when you're in Cali bring the bitch cause you don't want to paddle that titanic out of the Middle Kings, and bring your own multi-tool so I don't have to constantly fish mine out of the drybag for repairs
Speaking of Jackson boats and the bitchithane, I've patched boats on the river and paddled them hard for over a month after without drilling holes at either end, the crack didn't spread any of the three times I've done this.
