new boat

Bought one of the older serial# Mistrals and a caimbridge frame. All Idaho made. They are some big tubes. Fabricating a alum floor for the rowers compartment and have a pacific river bag for the back. Got it out on the Spokane River at 22,000cfs couple weeks ago.

This was my home for 22 days on the Grand in March. I absolutely LOVED having my little boat! Super fun, plenty comfy. I even got a couple of naps on it on the water. The rigging worked out great. A drybag on the front of each tube balanced the load really well, and I made a mesh bag for under my seat for drinks/junk. It's a triangular space, so it was a bit weird, but it worked out great. In my side bins sat pelican cases, and polymax encloses them so I have a place to set loose stuff without losing it. Fun fun!

Ha, yeah that was me. We floated 30 minutes or so to a really sweet camp on river right about 2 miles down. We got camp setup just before dark. We had to rig quick to get down there, but it was much nicer than crashing out at Miami.

Wow! That's the biggest load I've seen on a Legend yet. I realize they weren't made for that exactly but good to know you can do it if you have to. Curious about what size tubes those are and with the drybox behind you if the boat was back heavy? I sit on my drybox in my Legend cat and on day trips with the GF in the back the boat feels slightly back heavy. Trying to get it balanced a little better.

It wasn't too bad at all. The drybox was pretty heavily loaded, but the rest was mostly light stuff. I had my big personal/clothi g bag, cooler, and drink supply on another boat. One guy had an even heavier load on his 12.5 legend. My boat is stock, 22.5" tubes.

Not back heavy, maybe the tiniest at the beginning of the trip. Those front bags on the tubes really help esp because i don't like to move my frame fully forward. I made a strapping sling to hold them tight since they extend past the drings

These are great shots you all have, Here's one from April 12, the 23rd day of our 24 day Grand Canyon trip. Many more photos are on Facebook at Big Water, Little Boats | Facebook

My sweetie and I were sleeping on the boat and woke up about 11:00 p.m. to a rain just too heavy to hide under a tarp. We got out the Mountain Hardware, set it up, and went back to sleep. This is our tent the next morning. Enjoy, tom
