Are you volunteering to lend your sib to anyone crazy enough to try it?

Watching the way the waves overtake the canoe I would think you would have to be in a double ender - don't think it's deep enough to get the prop down!!!

A guy in the New River Valley of Virginia and West Virginia uses a sib, I think an Avon Red Crest, with an aluminum frame supporting a 20 hp jet. He goes upstream through the rapids like a bat out of h--- but has to get out and drag it downstream through some shallow sections. I frequent the same waters but I use a drift dory with 15 hp and a composite prop. He did tell me that he once ripped the bottom out of his boat.
