Yes the boat was green. Sounds like we might know some of the same folks. Or folks who know folks. The worst part ( other then the raft and other scary shit ) was the bus ride to Stanley. The trip was big enough that using a bus save us quite a bit of cash. Like a grand for the trip. Worst bus ride ever. 10/10 would not do again. Not sure I have used a bus since.

I found his comments appropriate.
I was pretty pissed when someone attacked my nested stainless steel pasta pot strainer combo with an ice pick a couple of years ago. They actually punctured the steel in a couple of places. Magically the pot healed itself after I realized that is the worst that has happened to my cookware in all my years of boating. It really did. Was leaking through pinholes one day and then it stopped. Weird.
For those who insist on cast on the river or elsewhere. To season your pan just get it smoking hot. Apply vegetable oil liberally. If it's not smoking it's not hot enough. Instantly you are re-seasoned. We don't use soap at home on our cast but sometimes it still needs it. And it's magic. No salt and baking in the oven as I was taught. Just heat and oil.
I don't take cast on the river.
