Another beautiful spring day here in St. John’s allowed me to take my new Alpacka pack raft out for its first test paddle on Long Pond and inlet creek. Getting into the boat is like getting a hug and it skims across the water like a water beetle. It’s a sporty craft that has its strengths in downstream, remote runs and I can’t wait to try it on some faster moving water. In the meantime, it was an absolutely lovely day out on the pond with the ducks, geese, and even an egret.
It’s looks as if Clifford tracks about as well as our Swifty kayak…..fun to play in but you wouldn’t want to be in any races. A good current will definitely help to keep it straight.
She’s a bobbing boat for sure…tracking is not her specialty but whitewater is…so looking forward to getting Lady Bird onto her element!
Is Clifford now Lady Bird?
Lady Bird is the current moniker…I suspect it will evolve over time…
