    Thanks Crazy,

    I pretty much got this for the Desert and for floating the Deschutes. Jumipers and sagebrush dont provide a lot of good hanging opportunities.

    Nice work.

    If you tip over is the table top attached to something to keep it from sinking? If not maybe tie it off to a drybag. They float pretty well itll give you a chance at recovery.
