I'm sure that others have thought about this but lets do it out loud. Would it be a good idea to have an alpacka raft http://www.alpackaraft.com/store/ind...yID=53&do=list on your float trips as a emergency back up if something went wrong with your main raft? Weigth, space, expense that it would take up be worth it? Has anyone heard of any stories where hunters have been stranded due to total raft failure? How often or how many times has this happened. The question came up under the general disscussion section about a group purchase of this raft but I thought that it might be intersting to start something in this thread and maybe get any stories about a total faliure and how did it happen, what was the outcome or how it was solved. What are some of the things people have other than a alpacka raft as a back up piece of equipment besides a repair kit and phone?
