"...in all the world there is nothing so fun as messing around in a boat"
BigEddy likes to think he has a choice, and in the Grand Canyon, he chooses to row a conventional floored "hypalon" raft.
Sure he has played around in kayaks and inflatables, and been forced to run paddleboats and self bailers, any boat is better than no boat... Heck even a cat is bound to be better than a poke in the foot with a sharp stick.
While anything that floats is bound to make it down the river (givin enough luck), an appropriate vessel for the river at hand is bound to be more fun than the wrong boat.
Most boats and frames are on a special order basis, and
to make more available... but for now, even if it is not
BigEddy is not afraid to let you know what he thinks.
Please contact us to discuss the benefits of ordering
next vessel from Bigeddy. We are happy to supply boats

|Other||Dories||What every boatman aspires to row... unless you don't want to be too far from a cooler|
