I got the 10 lb from AAA, though it is steel. I love how it fits well in a 5 gallon bucket. It is a bit taller than the bucket, but makes it easy to strap down. I store it right next to the captain's...

I'm at 8,500' in Colorado and use this "super heavy duty tarp" to cover our 14" raft and trailer. It's not cheap, but worth it if it lasts me a couple seasons. The tarp is really thick, so very...

I can see that on the hydrograph. Good to know the mosquitos weren't biblical, even with that drastic of a drop from 7/17-7/22. The forecast (and normal trend) shows the flow change flattening quite...

3 out of 10? I LIKE IT. We launch 8/5. The water is starting to level off, so I have my fingers crossed that they'll be improving every day. We're bringing head nets and a bug shelter just in case.

Thanks! I will definitely give that Arvada Propane store a call to see if they have the 11 lb tank. It's not too far from my office.

I vote #2. I imagine it would also be easier to install a roller bar on the back of that one as well as a winch on that crossbar in the front. The rails would also be good for strapping the boat down.
