Nirvana Self-Bailing Description

The Nirvana Self-Bailing has all of the same attributes of the Nirvana with spraydeck, narrow trim, aggressive rocker on the bow, which give it great whitewater handling capability. However, instead of the spraydeck to keep water out, Kokopelli has introduced drain holes in the floor system and removed the spraydeck which allows water to drain through the floor when it enters the packraft. 
The advantages of a self-bailer over a spraydeck include quick entry and exit of the craft to scout rapids, the elimination to pull over to the side of the river to empty water out of your packraft, and a higher paddling position to allow deeper more efficient paddle strokes. Use of a wetsuit or drysuit (depending on temperature) is recommended when using self-bailing packrafts due to water coming in and out of the packraft.
