This works for me quite well. Use bungi cord permanently attached with very small S hooks above every hull loop. This allows you quick access within seconds(even while in the boat). Have tried on a solo Northwater, and a homemade tandem 3 piece.

Hi

I have done the Pekans/Moise Rivers and Moise River on two different summers.We choose the last two weeks in August for both trips.First time was average weather,,overcast and rain most days with a couple of Ok days.The second trip was all sunshine with two half days of rain.

The subject of spraydecks always has different opions,,here is mine.Fisrt point is does it need to come on and off for each portage.?A boat outfitted for whitewater plus a skirt plus some gear plus moisture/rain is to much for me ( 46 male) on some portages during the Moise trip.

The Nothwater and Outdoor Solutions decks both are slow to take off and on.Both can be opened to the expose yoke and gear for portaging in short order.Both decks are heavy but well built.All decks pick up some weight when wet.My friends have experienced trouble dealing both Nortwater and OS decks.

My solution to a spraydeck for my solo SuperNova was take a Outdoor Solution deck to a local cavas shop. Where I had deck made from rainwear nylon(from a fabric shop).I had a six foot cargo hatch which included the tunnel with two way zippers.I could paddled in the tunnel or open the partial /fully open.I had the deck stop short of the bow and stern like Nortwater decks(found the OS deck wear on the ends )The deck was laced on like a Nothwater but due to the light weight (about three pounds) never needed to removed.This also saved a couple of hundred dollars.

You could paddle the Moise /Pekans with out a spraydeck but more fun and safer with a deck.

Did you have the Northwater deck on your Appalachian?


I think it is Northwater. It is stacked in the garage right now, not easy to check. I bought it via Trailhead and it was sawn together somewhere in BC.

Was it a good fit?


Yes, but I wish they were bit more generous with the material. With a lot of gear in the canoe, it is hard to stretch over it. Spraydeck is split in the middle in two parts. That way it is not so hard to empty and to get to the yoke.

Was it your first ww trip with this boat?


No, second. First we did Broadback in 2005.

Did you use flotation bags?


No.

Before going on the Moisie in 2009 I have some work to do which include running some grade III rapids with a deck.


Ideal practice with spraydeck is to dump with it (fully loaded). That way, you get confidence that it is not that difficult to get out and find out how hard it is to get it fully loaded out.

It seems this trip report is no longer accessible - Geocities isn't on the web through that link any more. Is there another source for the report? I tried emailing the author - lkovak@rogers.com - but it was returned as undeliverable.

Thanks - I did find the report, which is excellent. And congratulations on your Symposium presentation a week ago on the Nunavik rivers you've paddled. Inspiring, and very well photographed.
