Although you guys do like to take the long way around to try and not buy something that works. Cut of your nose to spite your face kinda deal I think. " ya,I want to buy a new box and have to plasti-dip it or wrap it or sand it or rebuild the whole sumbitch because it is a bad design to start with" WAKE UP!
Cheers

Yeah, I still prefer the grip and feel of the handles on my EOs to what you are showing in that pic. When that box is heavy those handles are kinda brutal on the hands. I would consider a Plasti-dip on those as well. EO has a good strong comfortable handle. It just needs a little work to get it all nice-nice. But you go with what makes you happy.

Great looking set up. Strapworks is good company. Toured their old facility about a year ago. It's about 3 blocks from my families business.

Getting ready to order my Chicken line. Anything with ordering one length of webbing long enough to encircle the raft plus another foot or two with "one" padded cam buckle?

Not really a raft porn comment, you should start your own thread or add to a thread about chicken lines.

Sounds perfect just error on the long side and cut it down as necessary

I do one length of line, but some folks like one on each side. Attach webbing to a D-ring, run it through D-rings around the perimeter, loop strap with padded cam buckle at the beginning D-ring. Secure & adjustable. I suppose you could just run the webbing around and back to itself without attaching to a D-ring with a knot or a loop strap. I'm not sure if it would slip???

Just picked up this Hyside Mini Max from Riverboat Works last week. Took it out on the Colorado this past weekend for the maiden voyage! A big thanks to the staff over at RBW for all they do! Couldn't be happier.
