  3. 15ft NRS expedition vs 15ft Aire

    Rafting | Gear Talk
    We had an 8 day trip on salmon Main in June. Flow was 13k at put-in and about 40k at the take out. I have a 15ft NRS, but I swapped a few miles on the oars with my buddy that has a 15ft Aire. The Aire seemed to be much more maneuverable and a little faster even when loaded down. Has anyone...

    Kayaking | Trip Planner
    my old copy of western whitewater says you can 'tube' it down to 150cfs. most of what I am finding online says 500 for kayaks but just wondering if packrafting it at say 350 is good to go or will tear up the boat? Many thanks.
