Jack's Plastic Fatboy with a DRE Dolores 3 bay diamond plate frame, captains chair, 8' Sawyer polecats with duramax blades.

The vision for the boat is for me and the lady to have a lightweight setup to do some light overnights (which we have done already).

Super stoked with the setup! Thanks to Zach, Matt, and Cory, at Down River Equipment for dealing with all my stupid questions, I can't recommend those guys enough.

Tarpology

Just had to share my solution for shelter. Looked at the NRS River Wing and MSR Zing and just couldn't justify the $$. Took a chance with a $99 Kelty Noah's Tarp 16. Spent an additional $20 on more cordage, carabiner's, and more industrial strength stakes. Couldn't be happier with the results. Don't spend extra on the poles, just use the oars. Held up to some serious winds with no problems.

I found these sand stakes invaluable during a wind storm on Deso- you might want to get a set for that tarp-

I almost pulled the trigger on Noah's tarp, but the reviews that it's too light and you cook under them put me off. What's your take? Is it like being in a tent in the sun, or does it shade like a regular tarp?

I owned a Noah's Tarp 12 for a few years. Two things I didn't like about it......light colored fabric didn't provide the heat blocking ability of a darker colored tarp, and the biggest problem was that it's a very difficult tarp to pitch taut in any other configuration other than a diamond. In the picture above, you can see how well it works pitched as a diamond. But if you try to raise those sides for a larger coverage area, you will struggle with floppy sides. It has to do with the catenary cut of the tarp. It's a well made, sturdy, and light weight tarp for a great price, but mine drove me & my friends crazy. I had Marty at Wilderness Logics make me a custom 12X15 green river tarp and I love it. More $$$ than a Noah, but worth every penny.

Haven't tried yet- they're a blade on the bottom and then narrower- so they should work. If it's really hard, I have other options- but when it's sand and windy, these things are invaluable.
