The remora is a little better tha the bak pak as far as performance goes. Also the remora has less parts to fail or clean. Basically water squirts out of a small hole and hits the water under intense pressure causing the bubbles. If the hole plugs it is real simple to clean by removing an acess screw.

The bak pak use's a air venturi. The air intake lines will fill with salt creep once a month and need to be cleaned. also the Bak Pak with its air sucking noise is a little louder. They both skim nicely though. Hope this helps.
