So I've been working last 4 days. Finally get back to my place. Have a look at my new Hellman canoe (used only once so far) and I'm like wtf? Somebody bashed in my bottom! So I flip it over and...uh oh, I left my airbags full and sealed. The pressure pulled the anchors up so hard it crumpled the canoe bottom. On the plus side, Bob really knows how to glue anchors lol!

Rookie over here!!!

Still doesnt sound right. The bottom of the canoe is weaker than the adhesive?

Are Hellmans that poorly reinforced? I would be in contact with them yesterday.

If the canoe was left outside all winter, I would be blaming snowload. How much snow did you get in the area this past winter?

The canoe was left 4 days unattended last week. Air bags were not full when I left but expanded in sun. A shame, that's a $3000 canoe :(
