pick your visual and treat accordingly. Seams may be the culprit?, maybe try a bike short (chamois)? or make one

Just checked the Northeast board H2sk1 and signed the petition. I don't know if the state really understands what a jem they have there. It's a river that's accessable to many diferent types of paddlers. I know if they had 2 days in the fall you'd see an increase in Canadian paddlers. I'd hate to mi...

Not many river/ festival combinations are as family friendly as ths one. Our kids really look forward to it and ...

I hate to disagree with EZ. Normally it results in being pointed out the error of my ways :lol: BUT, we have a caption which we use as a secondary boat in a tripping family. The legend takes the vast lion share but the caption will take a reasonably loaded 30 lt and a 30 lt soft side baja bag witout...

I've got a good dent in the bow and a few other character marks, but it is holdng up better then I could imagine. The seam has not been an issue. I've also not had the hand issue hitting the seam...

Thanks Jim for the story. As for the spectrum of physical activity, cycling surpases boating. http://www.teamtype1.org/ people who are active are more body aware....if they have a medical condition, they manage it. Just ask the new guys if there is anything you should know and where their meds are. ...
