    Default Alpacka Gnu?

    Looks like Alpacka is slowly bringing in bigger rafts. Wonder how the new, Gnu would stack up as a caribou hauler?

    Personally from past experience-- I DO NOT like single chambered, thin skin inflatables. Especially hauling gear and dead beast on remote arctic rivers. Just my thoughts-

    Goo, thanks for the reply. What would you recommend for a pack in float out hunt?

    Well, again just my thoughts- If you are going to carry it in on your back, you have no choice but to use a pac-raft. Just do not overload it too much. They are tough, but are still 210 or 420 din. compared to regular rafts or canoes are usually 3,000 -4,000 din. but weigh much more. Larry Bartlet in Fairbanks has a lot of experience with float hunting in pac-rafts, would give him a ring.
    Good luck,

    No bow upturn kills it for me.

    I tried to get alpacka to build me an explorer 42 with bow upturn. No dice.


    My dream packraft basically if a alpacka llama and a pr49 had little raft babies....
