Re: Keep these Open Canoes from going to the dump

Re: Wenonah Recon - Anyone have one?

Impossible to answer without knowing how far the back of your saddle is from your butt. I'd worry more about where the boat trims. I tested one at one point, and seem to recall it handled the best when paddled with weight placed in the precise center. If you're going to frequently carry gear in fron...

Old School Canoes, Boy Scout Whitewater Canoe Video, August 2019 Klamath River

Fun video link! This is a group of Scouts in CA that I help out on their annual whitewater trip. They make the video for themselves, so the actual whitewater footage mostly starts around 3:30 or so in, but its a fun video that showcases how you can still run class II-III water in really old-school d...

Re: Superlite and Lite Spanish Fly from Esquif

Very cool to see some of Frankie's designs back in production!!
Spanish Fly is too small for me,
but if you start making Vipers I'll buy a 12. ;)

Looking for ANOTHER OC (maybe 2) in CA/OR

Seems like almost every spring I'm on here looking for another boat. It may be time to admit I have a problem. In this case though, I'm actually looking for a friend. He's looking for his first OC-1, he's been paddling my old boat for years but its really on its last legs...uh...fins, flippers...wha...

Re: DRY SUIT RECOMMENDATIONS

Thanks for the advice!
I don't like spending extra money, but I always will for quality. It's why there's now a Clipper-built Viper 12 in my garage. That will narrow my search quite a bit.
Any specific brands that stand out though?

DRY SUIT RECOMMENDATIONS

So, for reasons unknown, I've always just toughed it out with wetsuits/polypro/and generally been cold while paddling in spring/fall. I've decided I've done that for long enough, and I'm going to go with a drysuit, especially since I now live on the ocean and I've been doing some surfing in my canoe...

Re: Mad River Outrage Bags

Assuming it is an original Outrage, 60" bags will fill it fairly thoroughly. 72" is probably overkill...but you will want 72's if its an Outrage X.

Re: Comparing new OC-1 solos for 200+lbs

Viper 12.
Clipper will still build you one.
There isn’t a hotter boat for 220 plus.

Re: PFD's ...2018...

You might check out the Kokatat Maximus, or Maximus Prime. I got one, its very comfortable, lots of float, I really like it for river trips. Its a little bulky in the chest, so I'll be using my old vest for racing as the Maximus rubs on my shaft arm when I go for an extreme cross-bow stroke (which y...

Re: Kayak conversions—and catching up!

Funny, I'm in Humboldt County these days, not terribly far from Eugene, and I'd been trying to find someone to take my old Dagger Cascade off my hands for years...with no success..I finally gave it to a young guy I trained to paddle OC-1...you know, just in case he wanted it...and mostly to get it o...

Re: Documenting the Shasta River Canyon

My apologies!

I didn't log into cboats even one time in the last couple weeks, so I didn't see your message. Are you still in the area?
