After beating around the bush for quite some time, I’ve decided to just bite the bullet and get a packraft - woohoo!!
I intend to be undertaking multi-day hiking/touring trips over mostly flat water initially, but am keen to work up to whitewater (~Grade 3) as I have some more adventurous trips I’m eyeing off.
I’ve all but decided to go with the Denali Llama, but trying to work out if it is really worth going for the Cargo Fly optional extra (~$435 by the time it reaches Oz!) - any thoughts? Also, what do people think about Cruiser Deck (leaning toward this option) vs. Whitewater Deck vs. just an open boat??
PADDLES! Finally, I was wondering if there are any good options in Oz as a good introductory allrounder paddle (pref. relatively light/pack down small) that goes alright over the longer flat sections, as well as the whitewater??
Any help is much much appreciated
