Does anyone have experience taking their PA on a river with rapids?
I have an opportunity to fish the Devils River in East Texas. It's a beautiful river with gin clear water, large bass, blue gill, gar and cat fish. It is primarily long, deep pools separated by rapids. The PA is perfect for the pools, but not so sure about the rapids.
The rapids worry me given three things:
1. The PA's size and consequently my ability to manage it
2. The hole in the hull could potentially catch on a rock
3. The rudder - can it be easily, safely removed prior to approaching the rapid (the rapids are easy to predict, so that wouldn't be an issue).
Thanks for any guidance,
