screw all you rubber pushers and plastic paddling posers. real boaters paddle birchbark canoes and walrus skin kayaks. how dare you any body run a rapid in an inflatable boat?

love what schutzie put up. puts in into perspective. every time something new comes along that lets people go where they coudnt before without dying, or makes it easier for a novice go where only experts could before, folks get all bent out of shape and talk about how it degrades the sport and all that crap.

well, except for those little one foot long skis. those things are really stupid.

I'll boat til the rivers run dry

O Passionate Creature Crafter, methinks thoust do protest too much.

The point was made by boiler guy that oars can hit anyone in the head even one time on a class 3. My point is that 4 minutes of side surfing with four oars in the boat the chances of taking an oar to the head is about 1,000 times higher.

But those guys managed to do oar management. Which I though was pretty amazing really. I never talked about lack of respect either. What's your deal?

I only showed up to this thread for the humor. It's not the right boat for me. If I could show up and run one down the NF I probably would.

It's a tragedy that so many novices get lured into that canyon with film crews at high water. There should be a sign or something.

My biggest problem with CC is their inability to flip. Takes away all the excitement of rafting imo.
