A short light boat is best, if you plan on bringing all the shit, bring the big boat. You'll draft less water. Lodore at low flows is more about shallowness then tightness. Exceptions are to be had, shorter boat is easier in triplet, HHM, etc.... but not at all bad in 16' boat. The less you have to get out and push, pry, and pull, the better.
Watch out for asshole rangers on the river.
