Just in case anyone is in need of a good foot pump, I thought I would share this. It is the "Bigfoot" pump from Clavey and appears to be of very high quality. I had been searching for some time when I found it. To say this was a hard to find item would be an understatement. Seems most foot pumps are of the cheaper $20-30 plastic variety. I was looking for something more reliable for remote float trips. Goo Vogt, (forum member "goeaux") of Alaska Wildwater in Anchorage let me borrow a pump for my last float trip in NW Alaska. At that time I had just bought my first raft, rented frame/oars, and was as green as they come. It was a very high quality and heavy duty pump and I assumed all foot pumps were made to a similar standard. Turns out, the market is pretty barren of such pumps. Just thought I would post this in case it benefited anyone.
