This would be a long conversation and I'm trying to keep it short, but I wanted to ask what has been your experience with the Clara so far? have you taken it rafting often? any issues?
I do love how it sounds and the fact that it is practically weather proof is a big advantage for me (always around water and boats) but the price and impossibility of repairing it have kept me away from getting one...
For a while I considered the Clara (I'm probably still considering it) but a couple of things stopped me from puling the trigger on one - the price and the fact that being made of fiber and epoxy, should it have a problem, it could mean I couldn't repair it (like a wooden instrument). I live i Europe and sending it to San Francisco is just out of the table should the uke need a repair.
So, I'm new to packrafting and although I prefer the tenor scale of my Tiny Tenor, I did get a XS Soprano (both romero creations ukes) for the sole purpose of traveling in water with the said packraft.
