Multiday family paddle setup
I have four kids 16, 14, 12, 10 and the wife and want to do some Colorado overnight/multiday trips next year. Has anyone rigged a large raft with gear for paddling? Am trying to avoid the 1 person oar man while the 5 passengers and border collie just hang on for the ride.
Would love to see best practices for such a venture, can imagine a narrow frame down the middle that allows drop nets for the hard/heavy equipment and all of the lighter soft stuff lashed to the top of that frame system.
This way everyone has a paddle and soft tube to sit on and some skin in the game during the rapids.
Not looking for class 4-5 trouble, just beautiful trips where we can unplug, talk/sing and grow together before they kiddos leave the nest. Thanks
