... is negligible. But taking the decks off makes everything a little bit easier -- from storing gear to minor outfitting tweaks. It takes a little courage to make the chop, but it's not hard. https://dl.dropbox.com/u/19217624/cboats/DSC01703.jpg

Great Falls cross bow -- Geoff Calhoun

... paddle over to take a regular left stroke, or, in my case, probably eddied out and walked down.

... The almost unavoidable completely Lethal hole in “Pigs in Space” caused the rest to walk-off. All 10 that put on demonstrated high levels of both courage and stupidity. The river wins this day. I’d also like to point out that Scott Curtis walked-off before I did, and swam, whereas, I (wielder ...
