Forager or alternatives

Post by mshchem » Fri Feb 15, 2019 11:28 am

Greetings all,
I'm looking to get a 2 seater plus cargo boat that can handle whitewater.
The obvious contender is the forager, so I'm curious if anyone has hands on experience with it?
The alternatives that come up when searching for a hunting packraft are the PR49 from prestine ventures and a Cub from riverOps boats.
Has anyone laid eyes on those rafts and has a word to say?

I've paddled a Forager and Gnu a fair bit.

I've seen the PR49 in action. It is a barge -- capable of hauling lots of weight, but not really good in whitewater.

I think the Forager is hard to beat. Big, comfy, light, and nimble (for a 2 person boat) in whitewater.
