Taking out at "Hole in the Rock"

Taking out at Hole in the Rock is a lot of work, but it goes. I took two trips, one with my kayak and another for gear.

Well worth the work for a great seven day trip.

Have you tried the Attack Whitewater Inflatable Kayak from Advanced Elements?

A Sevylor or similar would last perhaps 10 seconds.

I would be reluctant to take a sea kayak. but at certain flows I suppose you could make it work. if a weird ass raft/cat/Frankenstein thing can do it a sea kayak should be able to.

But I still submit 5 votes for IK. Nobody wants to ruin a rental kayak, but it is an acceptable risk.
I sell the Advanced Elements range of inflatable kayaks in Australia, and I am just wondering if you (or anyone on this forum) has tried their Attack Whitewater model? I try most of their kayaks out when I sell them, but I am terrified of whitewater and probably won't ever try this one out, so looking for some feedback.
Cheers, Emily.
