It's winter time and the buzz is pretty slow, so I figured I'd post some pics of these sweet cat tubes from Custom Inflatables.
They are ultra light 12'x19", two chambers per tube with longitudinal baffles.
The proud owner Eric who is paralyzed from the waist down, is using the rig not only as his play machine, but he'll also be using this boat as a platform to demonstrate the potentials of Adaptive Whitewater and raise awareness for the cause.
Visit the WVOnTheGo.com 'Community Accessibility Improvement Project & Free Accessible Adventure Guide', which is a personal service project Eric has been working on with the goals to bring about positive change, improve ADA/universal design accessibility, and promote accessible adventure tourism (bringing in new business) in the region.
The full website isn't up yet but the Facebook page has some information. Any boater in WV will know that the majority of rivers in the state have terrible access making inclusive recreation difficult. Hopefully we can all do a little to help improve access to the river for people with disabilities.
