Any other Pak-Canoe users out there?
I use a 170 and it's a heck of a boat. Cheap to take on a flight and capable of being soloed effectively. Has enough capacity to haul me, my gear and a de-boned moose.
I find the Pak as good as a hard shell in use. Better in some ways as it's flexibility can be an asset. For example the thing will bend when going over a souse hole and the ends will often flex out of the water flexing the boat out of stuff that would swamp our Old Town Tripper.
