Self bailing vs. spray skirt/Whitewater Deck

Post by Strikes_n_Gutters » Mon Feb 12, 2018 6:54 am

I'm looking to buy my first packraft and would love some input from those experienced with the products.

Coming from more of a rafting background than kayaking, I like the ease and simplicity of the self bailing boats. I understand that the spray skirt/Whitewater Deck offers protection from cold water - so that's not a small consideration either. I'm leaning toward an Alpacka Gnarwhal & drysuit. Talk me out of it?

I'm leaning towards the same thing.

@MikeC might be the best person to give the pros and cons of this setup.
