    Not a lot of loading or carrying but really good riggers. Can’t wait to get to that point.

    I'm there times ten, I just have to keep the old crew in check not to get too high to stay in the boat.

    I used to pick them up from their drunken stuppors, now, all they want is trippy music from the bluetooth speaker that they don't even understand, and everything to be done just like they would have done it 20 years ago.

    Well, at the first sight of uncle gusty, guess who's on the oars, and guess who is nestled down in a cuddle puddle?

    Me too. Just did the non-perishable shopping last night. Everything is in the trailer except coolers. Holler if you see this boat.

    Thanks for this thread and your contributions. Helped me plan and put together a new 14 trib. So much fun on our shakedown trip.

    Grand Ronde is a nice little float. Good looking setup.

    Ideal 14 raft frame config...GO

    Just off the Salmon...what a float. More details to come but a highlight was having a jet boat rocket past and Conundrum screaming my name out a couple times once he saw the boat. My crew was flabbergasted. That was awesome, thx Nate. Hope you had a great float too. Pics to follow.

    Thought I'd put some pics up from our trip. We rowed, ate, camped, drank, traveled, cribbaged, foraged, and hiked well. Great trip all around. Not much blood, sunburns, or hangovers. One outbreak of poison ivy and lessons were learned. The only bummer was getting a text from Tap probably right as he got back into service while I was still on the river. Came home to get his text and then read his news. It really made me reflect how lucky we are 99.9% of the time...going on great trips and coming home. That 0.1% that he experienced has to be awful but he'll get through it. He's a tough dude.

    Looking for advice for new kayak

    Hi all,

    I'm currently in the market to purchase my first sit-in kayak, and have finally narrowed it down to three. I'm hoping some of you can help me narrow those options down to one.

    What I want to do - I'm a casual kayaker, with three specific areas of interest:
    1. Wildlife photography
    2. Enjoying the quiet of nature
    3. A little fishing

    For these reasons, I need a stable and relatively dry kayak. I'm 6'1" and 225lbs, so a larger cockpit would be nice (and obviously a nice seat).

    My budget is up to $800, and I've narrowed it down to the following kayaks:
    1. Old Town Vapor 10 Angler
    2. Old Town Dirigo 106 Angler
    3. Ascend FS10 Angler

    Can anyone provide me with some real world advice on these choices to help me narrow it down? Thanks much for your advice...
