I’ve read your archives…but would appreciate some help.
My husband and I have canoed/fished the Kenai and Gulkana 4-5 times each summer the last several years, and we’re not getting any younger. He’s been hinting (whining) about a raft for several months, and has repeatedly mentioned the Alaska Series Kenai Drifter (14’). He left this morning on an eleven day snowmachine trip, so I know he won’t be looking at this thread (he checks daily) before Valentine’s Day…and I’d like to surprise him with a card that lists his gift items.
So…for a 14’ KD to be used for fishing the aforementioned rivers (and for doing a Copper Center – Cordova float), how should I “pimp” his ride?
Any other “experienced” tips will be much appreciated. I will purchase a raft from Mr. King, but likely get the accessories from ARK. I don’t know where to get a trailer. From reading the other thread, it looks as if I should get a couple different pumps.
- Oar make/length
- Frame style (and width)
- Motor mount for the Copper River float? If so, motor make/HP
- ATV trailer make/model
Thanks for the ideas!
