    It’s not advertising, well, not a direct one. They want to get high score at Google and other search engines. The more links exist to a specific site the higher rating the site gets in the search results. So, people are trying to create as many links to their sites as they can. Using public forums for this purpose is quite common.

    I suggest to take those messages down.

    Vlad –

    Not sure which Big Granite you mean. Skagit County? The single USGS reading I have from the two larger Granites are around 10 feet – not very clear.

    Yes, Big Granite in Skagit County. I’m very surprised it scored only 10 feet, it seems very clear. Here are a few pictures from last year. The second one is taken with waterproof camera while rafting on the lake – I put camera underwater. It is hard to feel scale, but the visibility here is more the 60 feet. Those are some good size trees and boulders on the bottom.

    Thanks for the info, Bob.

    Bob,

    I wonder if you have clarity data on Caroline and Big Granite? Those are two clearest lakes I’ve seen.

    I second the recommendation of Savylor Trail Boat. It’s working very well for me. It’s true, it doesn’t pack as well as Curtis raft, but it has inflatable bottom. This is a big plus! First, it means it’s safer and warmer. Second, it can be used as sleeping pad. I just had a three day trip with it – it worked flawlessly. True, this is small boat and there is a chance of capsizing or puncturing it, but I don’t think it’s greater then with other similar boats. You better be a good swimmer or use a flotation aid. As of the problem with D-rings – don’t pull them hard! I never ever had any problems like that. During last five years there were only two times when I coudn’t fix a problem with the raft right on the spot. First time it was a sharp rock that cut through the floor. I was able to fix this when I returned home. Second problem was caused be 100% DEET. Don’t use it while in the raft in a hot day. 🙂 By the way, both times I probably could fix it right on spot would I had Tear Aid at that time.

    Tear Aid is another great recommendation. This is instant permanent fix for typical problem of a small puncture.

    I suggest you try this raft first as the most easily available option and then look into other options if something doesn’t work out for you.
