So did you run the grand solo? With a newborn? Or with four cats?
If you are running a heavy frame its probably not heavy enough. They make lead shot for that. If that doesn't work, suspend a series of 5 gallon bucket filled with concrete off each dring. That should keep you upright in the rapids
Other than that my buddy has access to ammo cans with shells that have depleted uranium. We can shoot off the rounds, sink the boat in the rapids. Your friends will stop laughing and they can help you powdercoat the cans
