I raft because I can't kayak. And yes, I've spent some time in a kayak. Anyone who thinks it takes more skill to raft than kayak hasn't tried it. There is something to be said for successfully negotiating Marsh Creek in low water in a fully loaded 1200# raft though. If I could kayak all the stuff I wanted to run- I would- otherwise, I'll simply wait until I'm terminally ill to give it a shot.

Thats a tough one, lots a good vibes out there!
I own
2 kayaks
3 rafts / 3 frames
1 IK
and a really big cooler!!!

only...... 1 raft is a shredder way different from rafting
and another is a mini me and R2 R3 R4 you can take some serious kayak lines and bury the entire boat and often it feels like you are kayaking but with some buddies! my 12 foot rafts is good for higher water and of course taking your non river friends/family down the river!

I personally wish I could kayak more as the individuality experience is more satisfying..... but you do need to go with those whom you really trust much like tying into a rope and climbing 1,000 feet up! or skiing avy shit with dialed freinds!! its all good if your on the water!!
