I had a PAC 800 for one summer.. Super fun little boat and it's the one that got me started in whitewater 20 years ago. I bought it for fishing and a friend took me down Alpine Canyon with it. It was August, lowish water, and it handled Big Kahuna & Lunch Counter like a champ. I was hooked and traded it in on a PAC 1000, 10 footer that I've been rowing on & off ever since. I use cataract mini-magnum oars and I added an extra piece of diamond plate in the back to make an expanded deck for gear. Class II day & self support weekend trips are where I use it now. After 20 years, I've had one valve worked on and that's it. The tubes are made by AIRE, so it's a solid boat. You'll love it!
