Yeah, ummm, I would stick to still waters with that "tubetoon!" It does not appear rockered at all and if you have to row hard, it appears the front is going to buckle with some weight on the foot bar, plus you're going to be plowing water on the back side.

Yeah, if you were on a river other than the Spokane, and had to get from one side of the river to the other in a hurry... it could pose a problem in that boat.

I never would have recommended that stretch if I thought the risk was high. Here's a pic of the danger I failed to warn you of ;)
The sad part of this picture is that Spokane County has an ordinance making life jackets mandatory on all moving water.
It applies to anyone on the water riding an inner tube or any other floating device with tickets starting at $76 yet they
rarely patrol and enforce it.

And the irony is that most of the folks I've seen who wear PFDs are experienced looking folks in nice rafts and kayaks. I wear one.

Thanks for the advice guys. After reviewing your insight, I did some research and decided to sell the tube. I put in on CL and it sold almost instantly :eek:. I bought it for a good price and decided to pass that along. I will be looking for an actual framed pontoon this season, but I will charter a guide before I buy one.
