Thanks - that's exactly the info I was looking for.

On the bright side, maybe it will be easier to find a used old-style boat because people will will be upgrading.

Re: New stuff for 2011 from Alpacka!

I am so impressed with the old packraft design and am planning to buy a second one and am looking at the new design. Question: On the Escalante, the old compact design of my Llama seemed perfect for doing repeated 360 degree turns to avoid the overhanging Russian olive branches. In many, many, many ...
