So I am fairly new to rafting and recently went on my first trip with my raft and frame down the Yampa. unfortunately when I got home I noticed the frame wore gouges into my rubber. I have a 13' RMR with a DRE Gunnison Frame. There are no burrs on the frame fittings. could it be that I stapped the frame on too tight, or not tight enough? Could it be that stacking the rafts on the trailer could have caused this? Either way my plan is to add patches to the worn areas, but I would like to know how to avoid this in the future. Thanks.
