fuzzy poly hulls

class 4 rapids

river runs

spikes embedded in roll dams
the dams have collapsed a little but the old logging spikes from the early 1900s are there to rip you or boat apart.

had to repair
2 friends’ boats that gouged/punctured through due to lots of use in rocky Piedmont rivers.

Don’t mess with it!
Jack is right. If it is not leaking you should leave it alone. Heat treating could cause embrittlement. Eventually the fuzz will wear off and you’ll always have new fuzz unless you start dragging a lot of sandy beaches and sand bars.

I thnik if anythimg maybe a little wet sand i couldn’t risk killing her with a heat gun or a torch.

thanks for all of the input and opinions
