Now about that drought...

3 of our 6 rivers are too shallow for any kind of watercraft.

One more soon-to-be packraft that looks really promising: http://www.bakraft.com/

- 6ish lbs
- self bailing
- designed with some big time help from AIRE

I think someone at BPL needs to get their hands on one of those Bakraft prototypes and do a review. I'd love a lightweight self-bailing packraft. Good to see some new competition.
