Dynamic, which clearly isn't ideal.

Going that way soon for me as well..

Our second child is coming soon, with that said come into TMCK on your way to the river and I give ya sweet deal on anything you need on your list. Stock quite a lot of rafting gear, some special drop bags and other items most outfitters don't carry.

TMCK

Keep the Hairy Side Up....

Consider using this for your chicken line, my kids love it as it dosent scratch them when they are climbing in. The longer one is just long enough for your boat and easy to keep tight.

That's so cute. You think you only need a dozen shorter cams straps!

Just keep buying straps every time you order something or go in a raft shop.

Maybe stop after your strap bag weighs 10+ pounds.

Even more cute if you think I'm joking.

Might consider a rope ladder of some sort. Makes it easier to get in and out of the boat in slow water.

Heh- made third trip to Down River in the past two months, largely for more straps (I love the color coded sizes...). Suggested they start a strap of the month club.

Well they do have a strap club, helps out a bit when you buy 70 lb.s of cam straps a year.
