How a Keel / Skeg affects the direction of a packraft

Here is a short video about the Alpacka Raft Gnarwhal and an attached Keel or Skeg which we have tested in our HikeVentures Labs. In the video you will see the difference between using a Keel and not using a Keel. After the packraft has accelerated and you stop paddling the boat keeps it’s direction with the rudder attached on it.

Alpacka Raft Gnarwhal self bailer Test and Review

Last weekend I went to the the Liesjärvi National Park to test my new Alpacka Raft Gnarwhal self bailer which I ordered from Packraft Europe. Before I upgraded to the Gnarwhal I had the Alpacka Raft Yak for many years which I used on rivers, lakes and in the see. I am 180 cm tall and ordered the model in size L. Here is a short test / review and I will add more information to this article over the time.
