Paulina Peak at dusk and again in mid-afternoon (from a rental canoe).


Yellow Pakyak beside red PakYak after PakSak set up.


PakSak being opened up and taken down.




Shots of the red PakYak's frame. New features that are visible in these shots if you look carefully:

  • Horizontal one-half inch angle bar that swings up under top bar of frame to lock it straight.
  • Cord from end to hook on top stringer that pulls end side rails into position (a nice trick but not a huge improvement).
  • Strap to hold top stringer in place (needed now that the angle bar has replaced the longer strap that was used on the original PakYak).
