Under rated boats...

... are picking up on the Storm Chaser these days. But the boat the sticks out in my mind as a "great" boat that no one ever mentions is the Millbrook Amoeba. Front and side surfs far better than you'd expect, FAST, and responsive. You won't squirt it (too high volume), and as much as that is generally ...

Re: Hornet and Magnet comparisons

"Adam, just loan me your Amoeba for a while and I'd be glad to do a comparison." My latest race boat design is similar to the Amoeba (based on the same Estanguet race boat) except with lower stern volume and dimensioned legal for slalom. ...

Re: Hornet and Magnet comparisons

Adam, just loan me your Amoeba for a while and I'd be glad to do a comparison. :-) I paddled the Hornet again last night - the speed is a bit intoxicating. I easily made a power move onto a wave using only cross forward strokes, where ...

Re: Hornet and Magnet comparisons

Great review - thank you for taking the time to share!

Now I'm even more curious to hear what you'd think of an Amoeba;)

C-boat for 120 lb 11 year old to learn - which to pick

... some with me in our Grokshark. Top pick - a shortened Fanatic C1 that weighs <25 lbs. I cut the ends off where it looks sort of like the Millbrook Amoeba C1. This boat is light so he can easily move it, a fairly tough layup, and will respond well to his movements. He can easily carry it. It is ...

Re: Kayak conversions—and catching up!

Great to have you back with us:) If I were in your shoes I'd contact Kaz at Millbrook and see what he could build you an Amoeba for... stern pivots will be out, but comfy and fast just like you like. Surfs (front and side) great too. Otherwise keep your eye out for a Frachella Viper... ...

Re: Full cut Acrobat?

For a cruiser I'd stick with a Viper.

If you want pointy, fast, and staying on the surface get a used slalom boat, and if the tail annoys you shorten it.

For a really fun surface boat check out the Millbrook Amoeba if you have the $$.

Re: Tippecanoe

... try to keep the bow narrow on your open boat slalom designs? On which of your c-1 designs is the bow wide enough to be "in the way"? The L.N. Amoeba? No right answers, just better ones.

Re: Cboat Armada May 16, 17 and 18 during 2014 Rendezvous

Jim, You (and anyone else) are welcome to drop by some time here in Queensbury (and check out the Storm Chaser, Magnet, Sith, Amoeba, etc...). Unfortunately I can't make the armada this year (commitment I can't get out of). I was really hoping to make it as my daughter was going to join ...

Re: Big Momma Helen (Short) C-1 for sale

That looks very similar (but not identical) to the Millbrook Amoeba... which IMhO is a great boat.

The Amoeba might restore booming enders to spectator venues.

Re: Boat of the Week - Millbrook Amoeba

If you (or anyone else) are passing through the 12804 (Queensbury / Glens Falls / Lake George) area and want to check out boats or paddle just let me know! I can't always get away to paddle, but a boat test on flatwater is easy to work in (I'm right on the Hudson).

Re: Boat of the Week - Millbrook Amoeba

There are two in some of the other images, so I suspect at least two were out there! Not sure if EZ's was the other one in the image or not. It's a shame. It's a nice boat! River is the North Branch of the Potomac, where were typically get together for the Armada (well, all but the last two years). ...
