Thanks for the info do you happen to have any pics were you placed the bailing holes?I have a 9'er with an I-beam floor. I punched out 1 1/4" holes two up front and two in back between the floor and tubes and it works as a self-bailer. The tubes are small so its a wet ride even in class 1 and 2 water. I could see how it might be used for over niters. I'd just make sure that every thing that needed to be dry was in a good dry bag and carry freash tear aide for repaires. The 9'er is way easy to R1 from guides position and you could even go with a cheep fishing cat frame and oars. But the oar set up with the plastic welded oar holder on the tubes is a complete joke. Good luck.
Not off hand and Its packed away. But I put them about a foot apart in the bow and stern. I had a savylar IK that had caps in the same place. So, I thought what the hell. I got tired of bailing. I supose that you could go down the whole side like NRS rafts but I was afaird that the plastic would not hold the floor and might rip. I still get a bunch of water in the boat but not like it used to. I'll be back to the shop this weekend and I am planning on getting the gear out so if I can I'll take a pic.Thanks for the info do you happen to have any pics were you placed the bailing holes?
