Curious about you're R2 experience in west water... are there levels you like more than other ? Any you stay away from? I've always been in a large 15-16 boat ...long oars and the kitchen sink...just switched to a 12 ft Sotar this Spring couple runs on the fork and Shoshone so far .,. Getting the hang of the paddling thing but much tippier then before...thanks!

Frameless Rig

I paddle my Puma overnight a lot, I strap everything to the floor or the thwarts. I have a Yeti cooler I strap down to the floor laces. I have heard concern about the floor being damaged between the cooler and a rock, but I've never had any issue of the sort (I've also only done Class III or lower rigged in this manner).

I run a flip line under the boat (around the floor) and strap all the gear down to that as well as to a strap around the thwart.
