Blue Hole OCA Canoes

If I had access to a couple of good condition Blue Hole OCA Canoes -- what would be the going price?

By "good" I mean:

* none of the middle layer of Royalex is showing
* outside layer is lighter yellow than production
* still float

Well . . .

You just weren't trying hard enough. I could get way more water in there in a class 3ish.

There is a Hooter for sale in Ashville, NC; in case you are looking now.

It was on BoaterTalk (I think) a while back. PM me and I'll send you the contact information. (Not mine).

Hooters (as in boats)

Would the Hooter make a good slalom boat for a guy around 210? What's it paddle like? How are the edges?

I'm asking because I'd obviously paddle before I buy, but I would have to drive 7 hours just to test it.

Thanks,

Bookmark in your mind what you plan to see as you go through the rapid, particularly your entrance point. Run the rapid by looking where you want to go. When you ar...

Demo a Prelude in Central / North AL

Anyone in Central / North AL have a Prelude I could try out during an upcoming weekend?

I'm working my way through boats to try before I buy, that's assuming my wife doesn't seize my "canoe money" again. I checked out a Spanish Fly this past weekend, and I'd like to try a Prelude.

Detonator in AL

Not mine.

It's at Alabama Small Boats on consignment; I've seen it. It's in barely used condition and factory outfitting.

I think it was $900.
