When you consider logistical overhead vs costs, it's about a draw to ship a cat from CA vs rent a 13' raft in Bethel. But I know what I'm getting with the local Cat. I could also rent a 14' raft here and ship, but that would push the cost over renting in Bethel. But again, I'd know what I'd be working with.
Cat tubes are 16' NRS rivercats, on a 6'6" wide NRS frame. Raft is of unknown make/model.
The load would be 2 hunters + gear + possibly meat/antlers from 2 caribou. I'm a bit worried about the capacity of the 13' raft.
