    Default Big Rig Maiden Voyage

    Quick vid, we made of our First trip using the Big Rig raft and my Son's first Alaskan Fishing adventure.

    Awesome


    Wish I was there, been a while since I saw the Chena River.


    That Big Rig is slick (edited). Contacted Larry about it after talking with you last night. That boat would be perfect for solo float trips. Got some in mind being that the wife has bread in the oven. Also, would be great for the two of us fishing the Upper Kenai in Sept during Palooza, a yearly event we won't miss. So many applications for a boat like this. Very sharp man. Very sharp.

    Nice work guys!!! Stid finally glad I convinced you to spend some coin instead of the other way around (jet ranger)

    Is that the standard raft or the HD version?

    The oars are the 210 cm pack raft oars. I still need to pick up a couple longer ones. Larry recommends the 240s I believe.

    Love the vid, Steve. Looks like a great start to another successful year. Thanks for sharing.

    Also, you got it right on the paddle and blades: Aqua-Bound 4-piece 240 cm with Manta Ray blades are best suited for paddling control and bite. I don't care for the Eagle Ray blades, but they'll do.

    Thanks Steve! I picked up a 220cm paddle off craigslist to start with. I will see how that goes and keep an eye out for a longer one!

    That's an awesome combination for some serious fun, a Gopro and a Big Rig.
