That is excellent. One is often on the Lochsa for Memorial and they are always in the water, even before they are actually in the falls.

I'm speechless... Maybe, "yikes"!?

Perhaps if I had a Frankenfoot, I wouldn't be so concerned.

I wouldn't let anyone you give a damn about ride in that thing. No offense, but it's a deadly accident waiting to happen.

Just finished this one for the wife. The new bender worked great. Fold down towers are going to be nice, though! 40lbs with towers and locks.

Very nice! How do you fasten the towers in the rowing position?

I made a self bailer before SOTAR and almost killed my wife and myself.

I cut out a ripped floor and then suspended a plywood piece that was well sanded and taped on the edges. Thought it was pretty neat.

The plywood caught on a rock and flipped the raft much faster than any other flip I've ever seen.

I look at the netting catching and think entrapment.



I second the caring about your passengers and also yourself.

Trivia:
Told the SOTAR owner that story and he said he had done the same thing.
