The wife and I just got back from our first raft trip on our own boat. We did Ruby Horse Thief to test our set up. Had a great time and I can't wait to get back. I built my frame from speedrail fittings and 16 gauge fence posts. When I took my frame apart I noticed that the posts are starting to bend and groove from the tightening screws in the fittings. Eventually I would like to upgrade to 6061 aluminum but for now I was wondering if anyone out there had a fix for this.
