Tiny Rubber!

Hi Everyone,

Well, after a two-year hiatus from messing around on rivers in rubber boats, I’m gettin’ back in the game!

Having had several different sizes of floored rafts (12, 13, 14 and 15 footers) and all manner and size of gear and camping equipment, I think I’m going to switch it up this go-round and simplify things – a lot.

I just ordered a 10.5ft RMR Storm, which I’ll be using for casual day-floats with a few friends, R2 on class II-III, short weekend trips with the old lady (or solo, more often) on mild rivers and a little fishing. Yeah, I know it’s small. And yes, I know I’ll be essentially backpacking with the boat on overnighters and will need to forego unlimited beer and ice – I’ve thought all of that through, and am totally comfortable with it.

In order to fit everything I want to, I have some ideas of how I’d like to rig the boat for multi-day trips, but I would really appreciate you all posting a few photos of your 12ft-and-under boats with frame setups, and perhaps also chiming in with some proven combinations of frames and oars on boats of that size and rigging ideas. The only piece of gear I currently own that will be a part of the framed setup is a Yeti 45 and all the backpacking essentials I’ll be using.

Thanks in advance for your help and input!
