Kevin: check for stress cracks at the front attachment points where the tracer arms attach to the sled. That is where mine failed. The sled cracked at the obvious stress point. I had bought some bailing wire (found at Home Depot as "picture frame hanging wire") before the trip and was able to field repair it (Spencer and GO really know what needs to be in your repair kit!!!). First repair lasted from Wassataquoik Stream leanto to Togue Pond (about 14-15, miles some quite rough). Second field repair lasted to end of trip (another 6-7 miles). That bailing wire was worth it's weight in beer, uh, gold!
