Re: Spray Deck or No Spray Deck?

Not sure you and I understand a spray deck the same way. In my experience, a spray deck doesn't do anything besides keep (you guessed it) spray from getting in the boat. And it doesn't even realllly do that super well. It does not add any storage options whatsoever. As for weather protection, the on...

Large U shaped backrest from Alpacka

Hey guys, In the market for a new Alpacka this season since they are now making self bailing floors and I noticed something odd on the alpacka website on the self bailer page: The boats in the photo have a wrap around inflatable backrest. I've never seen this before and speaking from experience, I c...

Re: Fremont Canyon packraft trip @Capital Reef, March 29-30t

I'm not available then, but would be interested in doing a packraft trip out west about that same time in April. I've done a lot of class III in my alpacka, but never been in class IV but am confident I'd pick it up quickly. Let me know if you'd like to do something.

Re: Packrafting NYC

Hey all, Took my llama out on the lehigh this past saturday. The combination of a dam release and overnight rain had the water level up to 2200 cf/s ( full 1000 more than most release weekends ) and the trip was awesome. As usual I parked at the Glen and rode my bike with the raft on the back uprive...

Re: Packrafting NYC

3 days later.... Make that 5! I'm in the Bethlehem area. Got my Llama a month ago. Taken it on the Lehigh from Glen to Slatington. Man it felt invincible. Not sure when I'll get out next ( just glued the tiedowns for thighstraps ) as I work the next 6 days in a row and am headed out to Utah for some...

Effects of water on submerged bike

I've been looking around and can't seem to find the answer of what effect water has on a bike when you flip the raft while bikerafting. The bike will be completely submerged in water ( even if for a short time ). The water will get into the bearings in the wheels and bottom bracket right? Also, what...
