How was that zoom outfitted? Airbags covered with something?

Creeker-People outside of cboats have seen the video for sure. Someone posted a link to it on the Coastals forum here in VA. And some of us have watched it a few times, and with dynamic IP addresses.... Edited to add - the views on this form go up while looking at the thread and the responses. Ther...

I hear ya. I don't think about all the strokes and the names, because once you're on moving water, pretty much every stroke is a blend and adaptation. I know it's jargon, but duffek pretty much sums up a lot of words in one - not like a cross forward bow sweep. ;)

I agree with you, just wondering how much different Bob P's cross forward and pry is from an offside duffeck planted across the eddy line? When I do a duffeck turn like that, I usually extend out as the boat slides across and am basically doing a forward stroke after the extension.

And isn't that particular blending of strokes what some people would call a duffeck?

Pat.
Yeah, it is. But I like saying duffeck (or however you spell it) ;)

I like throwing a duffolk across the line and pivoting the boat around it, but depends on the width of the eddy line and how much speed I'm carrying in.

That could have been it. It's been more than a decade - probably close to 2. We dump trucked on vulture rock (young girl not paying attention fell out and almost got between the raft and the rock took guide's attention) - I kicked out and swam when everybody started falling on top of me 'cause it wa...

I don't remember the name of the spot, but there was a spot on the New that I used to catch that would suck you under and spit you out after about 20 seconds. When I rafted a bit years ago, I would swim it every chance I got. Getting used to the timing of breaths between waves, moving to swimmers po...

I've been on the New I think 8 times in a raft (eons ago). I never ran it below 0, think the lowest was around 1.5 and the highest was 11.5 by the time we came off the river. It's been probably 13 years or so, but if memory serves me double Z was more technical in the low ranges, easier to plow thro...

Not sure how many layers you are pre-drilling (ie inner gunwale, rx, outer), but the curvature will shift alignment slightly. I would think pre-drill the inner, clamp, then pilots through other layers would be safer.
