Anyway, when I get to use it, I'll post the experience.

| I'll find the name. In fact, if you want, I can pick one up for you if you wanted to pay the shipping back. Just would need to know what size diameter. I will get the name of it tomorrow for you. I'm heading down that way where I can buy them. Just to save you shipping.|
Ok, onto boats. Yes, you should ALWAYS have a repair kit and pump on hand. When the weather changes, so will the air density in your tubes. I've fished right when the seasons change out on the coast. Had one day where it was cold. In the morning, I always pump the tubes rock hard (tubes ALWAYS should be rock hard, if there is play they can puncture easier on an obstruction). Then, as the day changes, I will adjust the tubes. Well, in an hour or two it got so cold it started snowing (this was April here on coast, so a rarity) and my tubes started getting soft. So pulled off and pumped them up to rock hard again. By the time I got off the river, was releasing air again. Had warmed up. Especially if you have lower end tubes (ones with a bladder and a stitched shell) you REALLY want to keep an eye on your tubes. Have had (first hand) and seen others who have had their boats split apart. Had no idea (and I was keeping my eyes on tubes, but had fish on so wasn't paying attention for an hour or two lol) and next thing I know I hear "pop pop pop". Got the tubes deflated before a total blow out. But others weren't so lucky.
Steelheader & Chromium,
they're called 'Rope Ratchets'. Google it.
I bought one for my pt boat anchor system. Wouldn't use anything else. Highly recommend it.

I would really consider selling it. It is not a bad boat but I don't do enough float river fishing to keep it around. If someone is interested drop me a line.
