Re: Galasport CHOP SHOP 4m slalom boat alteration question

That's along the lines of one approach I was thinking, except to make a closed-cell form for the bow and actually glass it into the boat in the process. Maybe that's a crummy long-term situation, I don't know. But yeah, cutting the deck close to the desired shape and then cutting the hull back a bit...

Galasport CHOP SHOP 4m slalom boat alteration question

I picked up a Galasport Pyrog for super cheap and I want to make it into a SPyrog, a Short Pyrog. I'm not interested in racing under any regulations, so I am going to chop the wings off and take 12" - 18" off the stern. I think those are pretty straightforward modifications. What I need help with is...

Re: Canoe Sale-apalooza

Looking at a Pyrog elsewhere. Do you have any opinions of that Long Thing?

Re: Maybe-Bat slalom C1 $200

If you come and pick this up any day before noon, I'll make you a special smoothie with cold brew coffee, organic whole milk, frozen bananas, and peanut butter.

It's what the Kool Aid Man drinks right before he has to run through a brick wall.

Re: SPRAY SKIRTS

Off-the-shelf kayak sprayskirts will usually pose a problem for C1 conversions, as the tunnel is positioned too far back and is also shorter than preferred. A custom job is called for. You can make your own, of course: http://www.wwslalom.net/skirt/index.htm Or some makers, I think snapdragon used t...

Re: Recommendation for river runner C1

Thanks, Jim. That's the kind of take I was looking for. Some basic parameters, length, width, etc.

And about the rain part, I do agree that it's most enjoyable when the water goes in the river.

Re: Recommendation for river runner C1

Okay, I've got a question. What's the best conversion for all-around whitewater cruising? I'm not interested in stern squirting for the purposes of this discussion. Just a kayak that should've been a C1. Fast, nimble, and not hole bait. Something that could run everything but super tight insanely cr...
