    I've finally got a framed raft and plan to learn a lot more about the river this year. Give me a shout if you want to float.

    Do we have Private Messaging now with the new board setup?

    If the area you're looking at is anything like it is around here, you're going to need some form of game warden for the property. Once word gets out that fishing is good in that stretch, the locals...

    How is it starting to break again? Depending on the failure mode, it might be salvageable with some preemptive "rodsmithing". I'm a big fan of the XP series and would hate to see one of the classics...

    I've been thinking about making pretty much the same thing for a while. I like how yours turned out. I've been worried about the overhang in the front and how "bouncy" it might be at high speeds...
