Here's my spider rigged for overnight minus a passenger. I just move my seat back when rowing 2 up. I have the floor out too.

The other boats in there are a 12' hyside and a 13' hyside. Both more roomy than my spider. At first glance I thought the 13' was a 14'. He took that boat down the grand.

I've seen folks R1 a 13'6'' boat down class III, and I know a guy that R1s the West fork of the Hood River (CLass IV-V) with a similarly sized Avon. The paddler(s) is more important than the boat.

I would R2 my 12" boat without hesitation. Its nimble, and I would bet that a hyside that weighs 20 lbs less would be even more so.

but can you see its opposition | comes a-rising up sometimes | that it's dreadful and position | comes blacking in my mind | ....and then I see a darkness
