Prijon Pure XL conversion question - securing foam pillar

Hello everybody. I have Prijon Pure XL I would like to convert with a Dagger pedestal insert. I may possibly use this setup for creeking. I am assuming that I will put foam pillars in, which I know how to make already, and are needed to secure the Dagger pedestal. My question is: How would I secure ...

Re: Kayak conversions—and catching up!

If you want snappy handling, then the Pyrhana Burn is the boat for you. They even make an XL size, which is pretty wide. This is not based on experience, just an opinion developed from reading people's posts, and seeing the boat in person. It is pretty edgy.

Re: Looking for OC-1 in CA

I saw an Outrage X for sale on Bend craigslist, under boats.

Also, a friend was selling a Genesis, though that seemed pretty far down on the "wish list".

Re: Does anyone canoe in Colorado?

I used to live in Denver, and did quite a bit of open canoeing, and I would say the whitewater community there is a lot more chill about open boating than in California. Check out the Rocky Mountain Canoe Club, maybe they could help you find a canoe. Once you learn how to boat, the Colorado Whitewat...

Have a question regarding what size Snapdragon EXP you're using on the Prijon Pure XL. Thanks.

According to the Jackson web site, they list a large Antix with a 27" inch beam. If I was going to convert the boat, I would go for wider. Just my opinion, I haven't paddled too many C1s.

Re: Boat of the Week - Dagger Atom

I've always wanted to get an Atom, it looks like it would be fun for citizens slalom racing. I'm a bit heavy for it but my weight is almost down to the point where I could sort of paddle it. It was fun to read this thread. Maybe some day I'll get one.

Re: Dropzone available in US

Is information regarding the DropZone's width, type of hull (displacement or planning), and suggested paddler weight range available? I searched around the Internet for a few minutes, did not find any info. Thanks.

Re: Royelex Repair on Descender

I have fixed cracks in my Royalex canoe a couple of times using the following steps: 1) Took razor blade utility knife and gouged out sides of crack to clean up jagged edges. 2) Sanded then treated surface with Acetone to clean 3) Filled in crack with G-flex. 4) Took piece of Kevlar cloth cut to siz...

pedestal glueing question

This is a boring question, but just wondering if anyone has removed a minicell foam pedestal then re-glued the pedestal to royalex with Stabond glue without cleaning off the foam that has stuck to the bottom from the original glue job? Did that work OK? It seems like the hull should be cleaned of al...

Re: Need a new PFD

I like my Stohlquist Rocker vest. I roll my OC1 OK with it, haven't noticed any issues. Don't know about C1 rolling.

Re: Blackfly Canoe demos out west - where should we go?

If you're interested in lining up something on the South Fork of American, near Sacramento, CA, let me know. I could send out some emails to clubs, canoeists I boat with. I would be interested in trying out a boat. Best run would be Coloma to Greenwood, pretty easy so you'll get more potential parti...

Re: Trinity river April 24?

A number of canoeists usually boat at Trinity River- Pigeon Point on Labor Day. Kind of a long ways off but I'm posting it as something to plan for possibly, get some open canoeists together.
