Talking about a sevylor sk100ds. This is just a preventive measure, not saying that theres anything wrong with the IK.
not made for lakes and such. not all of their products are pool toys, and not all of their products are lake toys. heavy pvc, self bailing, drop stitch floor, thigh straps, all the stuff you want in a river running IK. though they do stick to some rocks in shallow water, I've not experienced any damage on any of mine.Hmm.... Sounds like if u feel like you need to reinforce it when new that you might have purchased a more superior product. Aren't those made for lakes and such?
