Nice TR. I've never experienced a strainer and I don't ever WANT to. =)

The "strainer". I've been through one of those on a 2-man 8' fiberglass Old Town canoe on the Current River in southern MO and my gear did NOT stay dry. A pair in in our group managed to sink a canoe - the only time I've seen it done on several dozen float trips. Had to turn our overnight float into one long day due to loss of gear, food...and will power!

It was an easily avoidable situation, it was 100% paddler's error.
