LOL! I was paddling Upper Middle Consumes at a high level (500 cfs) and got caught in a hole where I had to eject above two very large drops. I am fine and so is the boat after a little hot water and a hammer. Cannot believe that boat stay together after seeing what it went off. The plastic is bomber!

It is cross link and I was informed not to beat it with a hammer as it should come out on it's own. My 09 SH took the same hit and wasn't cross link and held together also.

David, these were un maned hits as I swam and they dropped off the earth full of water.

Be safe out there folks the water is coming up
