Casual Rafter

Hey all, been casually rafting for about 10 years, own a 1995 15' Sotar. Her name is BJ and she's old and faded and missing some valve caps but holding strong and no repairs! Only rafted rivers in Oregon, currently residing in the Rogue Valley. Love the Lower Rogue, North Santiam, and the North Umpqua!

Welcome BJ and her crew!

Replace those caps; damaging the inner valve on the river would suck! (pun intended?)

Thanks for the welcome!

I hear ya on the valves. Unfortunately they are the old style, and the new outers don't screw into the old inners, and the new caps don't fit on the old valves. If you can find the old valves they are really expensive ($150 last I checked)

Try molding some (silicone mold, urethane or epoxy cap) or get some 3D printed! haha
