Contributions for joining a normal SierraRios trip include a kayak and paddle for competent paddlers. The above listed boats are in Bolivia.


OARS/PADDLES: Most of the oars available are Cataract SGG oar shafts (composite carbon/fiberglass material) with MagnumII blades, but there still are some Carlisle oars with outfitter blades (aluminum-based). Kayak paddles are either AT or Werner straight shaft or bent shaft 197-200 cm and almost all are fiberglass with 30o feathering. Anyone in charge of a raft or kayak takes responsibility for damage to oars/paddles that may occur while in charge of a boat. We can bring 1-ft oar exenders to convert 9' oars to 10' oars, but this needs to be requested and arranged well ahead of time. Currently in Bolivia we have:

OARS
(7) Cataract SGG 10' oar shafts with Magnum II blades [as of Mar2017, two blades have dings]
(4) Cataract SGG 9' oar shafts with Magnum II blades [as of Mar2017]
(2) oar extenders (1')

KAYAK PADDLES
(1) Werner Stikine carbon (black) 200 cm 30o bent shaft
(1) AT Glass (white) 197cm 30o straight shaft
(1) AT Eddy (red) 197cm 30o bent shaft
(1) Werner Rec (yellow) plastic blades 197cm 30o straight shaft
(1.5) AT Odyssey 220 cm adjustable straight shaft (for IK) [one was broke and half needs replacing]

CAMPING/PADDLING GEAR: There is other gear in Bolivia, including 2 Paco Pads, 5 GGC pads, some PFDs/helmets, and camping gear. To rent items, see rates at RENTALs.
