Took my storm out for its maiden voyage on the up upper San Juan this past weekend. I ran a 75 quart canyon up front that was a tight squeeze but worked. I sat on a dry box I rented from pro. Gear pile up front with 2 water jugs on each side of the cooler and a propane bomb in the way back. I'm a big rower at 3 bills and it handled like a dream. Even had a 4 year old ride up front with me for a bit through 8ft and ledge.
