Aire Bakraft $1050

Hey buddies - it's time for some Spring cleaning, and I am parting with two of my packrafts. I just booked a trip to the Arctic in June, so I am selling my self-bailers to fund a decked boat that will hopefully keep me a lot warmer! Update: Alpacka is sold. Second is an Aire Bakraft. This is about a...

2011 Denali Llama, 2012 Yukon Yak, Paddle

Up for sale are two very good condition packrafts. These were purchased in hopes of running the desert rivers here in Utah, like the escalante and dirty devil. Unfortunately, we have not had time to make extended trips since purchasing them. With some recent unexpected repairs popping up on our hous...

Re: Grand Canyon

we just got off the grand this week, and one guy in our group did 210 river miles in an alpacka. we had raft support for all the gear though. he ran everything but the 5 biggest of the bigs at 20k, mainly because we were a group of rookie rowers on the big boats, and we didn't want to have to keep a...
