    Chart Cases - Zipper vs Roll-Top Style?

    They all leak, I like the roll top ones better as they are slightly better and are easier to open and close. -Jason

    30 second assisted rescue

    Other than the "Wet" one holding the paddle it looks like a standard rescue.

    The need for 3 is to pass CG regs, That said I have been going out for 10 years without valid flares (that said I do have a laser flare in my PFD pocket).

    Julie and I have a spare room.
  11. Just be careful if you use a tarp to make sure that it's cut or folded not to extend out past the bottom of the tent as it will direct the water under your tent and create can make of a wet nights sleep.

    Carbon-Kevlar P&H Cetus LV

    Can you send me the pictures and I will upload them. Any error messages you ran into would be appreciated too.
  13. When you have 400lbs of kayaker and gear 4LB's of boat one way or another shouldn't make that much of a difference.

    GPS-watches

    If you order a Garmin look at the extended warrantee (If you order one via Amazon they will sell you an extended warrantee, I am sure that others will too). My vívoactive® HR lasted one year and one week before it died. As for GPS accuracy, they will be accurate to within yards, the question is how much time do they sleep between fixes (in attempt to save battery). If I was to order another Garmin (depending on the Apple watch 3, in about a month) I would order a higher end one with a sapphire lens, as the plastic one scratches up fairly easily. I am going to look at the Apple watch 3 (they have an option one the Apple watch 2 for ones with sapphire face) and then see what Gamin has at the time. I very much like the idea of the Apple watch, but not that it needs to be charged every night. The Garmin has a good life on it. Fitbit is interesting, but they don't have a waterproof one with a screen and built in GPS. -Jason
