Re: C1 Conversion and recommended "Paddler Weight"- Need Advice!

I'm near Raleigh NC. I've got a few conversions I'm trying out. Most are play boats, however.

Re: C1 Conversion and recommended "Paddler Weight"- Need Advice!

I agree with you there! It's hard to keep up at times with the 2-bladders! My thought is I'm ALREADY used to paddling a larger boat (width and length) so bigger *MIGHT* better. I fall right in the middle with my weight so it's difficult to decide. There's not a lot of converted C1's around for me to...

Re: C1 & C2 Boating

I have a couple of open boats I LOVE. Also, I'm 5'8...

C1 Conversion and recommended "Paddler Weight"- Need Advice!

I weight 180 lbs/82 kg, but by the time I get my pfd, helmet, paddle, water, snacks, throw rope, rescue gear (a lot) I'm sure I'll...
