First Post, First Raft, Need Opinions/Approval
So I am going to take delivery on my first raft sometime in August. I have been working closely with a really great outfitter and the advice and suggestions I have gotten have been awesome. I am really looking for other rafters/fisherman's advice on anything that I may want to add, or any useful accessories I may want to pick up.
So here's what I'm gonna be working with :
-2012 13ft Rocky Mountain Raft
-3-bay DRE San Juan Frame
-front and rear thigh bars w/ horns
-front and rear swivel seats
-flip bracket for forward angler seat
-2:1 anchor system
-Accessories: 2 Cataract counter balanced oar shafts (9ft), 1 Carlisle EHD oar shaft, 3 Carlisle blades, 2 drop bags, Salamander 75' rescue throw rope, DRE 4" barrel pump, and an Engel 80qt cooler
Any opinions, advice, or comments are welcome. Like I said this will be my first raft, I have oar time but have never set up an outfit before. Also any advice on how to rig it up, slight modifications, or experience would be great!
