Hey Mike-- why not put a spot on the basic forum on pac-rafts? After this weekend show -- seems lots of folks have their own spin on this basic, light-weight, type of raft, Material, thickness, where made and put together, as well as the type of fabric and glued or welded, both the basics of Alaska back-country light weight crafts. This is "big time" information for here and other remote parts of the world.
I personally feel not every one needs the same thing. Some rivers are fine for everything and others are MONSTERS!!
So many new options. The whitewater junkie and hunters are two different babies and need to know there is not "one glove that fits all needs"!
Again just my thoughts.
