This little boat is great I've had mine for three years and taken it down Cataract Canyon, Diamond Down in the Grand Canyon, San Juan, and several other stretches of rivers several times. I had a custom NRS Big Horn frame made with four cross bars and built a rowers floor from plywood. I put a front drop hatch on the frame. It will carry up to seven 20 mil rocket boxes in the front hatch and on the rowers floor combined. I run duffel in the stern bilge and a cooler mounted in the frame. This is a great little boat and in my opinion can handle up to class four white water with a competent person behind the oars.
