Well as I sit here pondering new adventures in Alaska I am starting to get the float hunting bug! I have thought about it before but have not researched much. I have about 10 months before I come home, so I am thinking I may get it done now.
What I am looking for from all of the experience on here is some basic guidance towards what type of raft to purchase and why.
My basic purposes would be anything from a fly in float out caribou hunt up north, to moose, and also used to float some awesome fishing rivers.
What I would be doing.
Need to be able to haul 2 people and one moose plus all gear, but I want to be able to contol it solo as well.
Durablity of course. Most good Alaskan made equipment is that!
Warranty. I would like to have a decent warranty should something go wrong with it. I would also like to be able to action on the warranty if need be.
Needs to be able to pack into a plane.
I haven't looked yet so am not really sure on what kind of cash I would be laying down. If I were to look at used rafts, what should I be inspecting for to ensure the serviceablity and longevity of it?
Any other tips you can through this way would be great.
Last thing. Do any of you do much floating outside of Alaska. Wyoming, Montana, Colorado, Utah Idaho, places like that??
Thanks all Jason
