    I know a guy who did the Tana, he said that some of the hydraulics are truly monsters, and he barely made it in an 18ft cataraft. I would not attempt it except for lower water conditions, and probably not in a packraft either. When Embick said that death kayakers would avoid the meat of the rapids, I thought it must be ugly considering some of the water he ran.
