Can we get a rafting forum?

Every other f'n post in here is about rafting (not that there is anything wrong with that.) I respectfully request we put the rafting stuff in one place as I mostly wanna talk about kayaking.

Support? Dissent?

Don't read 'em. I find them entertaining and actually learn some stuff from those guys.

This has come up once a year for the past 7 or so years I've been on the Buzz. Every time it is discussed it get shot down for the aforementioned reasons: most of the rafters and the kayakers agree that there is enough in common to not segregate the two because everyone is on the same rivers, often even in the same groups, similiar conditions, similar river skills needed, etc. Also, what would be next, would C-1, shredderers (is that right?), playboaters, creek boaters, duckiers, river boarders, SUP-ers, hydro-bronkers, creature-crafters, swimmers, and catarafters all have to have their own forums due to equipment differences?

And some of us do both and enjoy hearing about both.

My suggestion is to go to Boatertalk if you want separate forums.

What he said!

Suggestion: When posting question, trip planning or river beta mention K or R.

Example: "Boulder Creek is good to go at 300 cfs!"

In a tube? Kayak? Cataraft? 18' fully loaded raft?

Dividing up the forums like that is what killed the NPMB site. There was no interaction on any of the sub boards and it is now down to just a handful of local kayaking buddies.
