Re: Packraft on the Tua, PNG

Not sure if this is the best place, the board doesn't seem overly busy so it's unlikely to be lost, but just to follow up: Iv'e had a few day trips to grade 3 and four days on the Arthur river, i'm not an experienced packrafter but do have some time on water in kayaks, some ww, mostly coastal and oc...

Re: Packraft on the Tua, PNG

Iv'e only had a chance to pump mine up TD, which is ok for now, not only as we've record snowfalls (in Tassie). I notice you have a tab in the bow for a line, even that is one more than mine seems to have. I've got a backrest from Alpacka that looks like it would work with a continuous strap to a fo...

Re: Packraft on the Tua, PNG

I agree, good read, interesting story and country. PNG rarely gets a mention for the outdoor opportunities (besides the obvious trails). On another note, took delivery of a bakraft last week and i'm looking forward to a few days off to get it floating. First instance noted the bag and inflation, it ...

Re: Adhesives in Oz

Just to add to the oz collective. Earlier in summer I looked at the options for glue. After looking at the expense/ shipping I settled on one available locally, 'Azbond': https://www.whitworths.com.au/main_itemdetail.asp?cat=101&item=45383 I glued in 4 attachment loops, followed similar guidelines r...

Wanted- Yukon Yak

Or perhaps a Llama in good condition.
I have a brand new Explorer 42 that we may be willing to swap for the right boat (or sell once another raft is purchased).

Re: Murchison River Tasmania

I would ask, J Mc, if your keeping an eye on this.. if you recall the month/rainfall in the lead up to your trip? We wont have a lot of choice but if it hasn't rained (or has pelted down all week) may help decisions as we get closer to High Dome. Any thoughts appreciated. Cheers

Murchison River Tasmania

I have searched widely and seen a couple of comments mentioning trips down the Murchison but i'm just after further thoughts. The upper Murchison is relatively remote and hard to get a fix on how far down to plan to enter. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, even if it is some time before you r...
