the hazzle and the weight

The moments that I would really need it, no pump would be fast enough (in the meat of a big, long rapid), and all other situations I can just dump. So its too much hazzle for not much use.

Plus a pump is a significant weight that I dont wanna move or carry around

Never seen any of the new school large steaming pile of dog doo runners use a pump


I guess everyone should just do what helps them, and I can totally see where a pump could help people.
It's just not for me

I use a pump except the new Ion does not have one. Simple to set up with SLA, Atwood 1200, switch. I really like Matthew Toddhunter's lithium battery, military switch. If you want to buy a system from him contact him through Ridgespirit Outfitters on FB. The pump allows me to keep up with my kayaker buds. In the Ion I need to stop and rest my ankle/foot that was injured in April, so I have not put a pump. It is easy to dump.

A big part of the beauty of a canoe is that it is a human powered craft.

I can understand the appeal of pumps... but I'd rathe just paddle a C1 and keep the water out in the first place;)

Otherwise part of the challenge to me is a dry (as possible) run.

I'm surprise Kaz even uses a sponge... I'd think it would outweigh the amount of water he gets in his boat :o

He uses the sponge to clean out the boat just before he puts in on the roof rack...
