Quick question.... when rigging from paddle raft to oar boat do you all remove thwarts, or just leave them deflated?
If you just deflate them do you or can you put coolers or gear bags on top of the deflated thwarts. I have a row frame that will hold a cooler and want to know if I can just leave the thwarts deflated and put my frame and cooler on the boat.
Also wondering if you Aire boat owners without frame chafers think I should put some on my boat..... Are they really needed?
Thanks in advance.
