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

... waters. It is a great boat and the 20/20 has more volume and is a more refined design overall. I am also loving my Condor, now known as the "Green Banana". Great boat, Rodeo Clown nailed this one, fast, forgiving and dry. All of the fun with half the guilt of paddling an Octane 91.

Compared to my current OC-1, an Option, (Yes, I know, it’s like comparing an orange to a banana,) the Storm Chaser tracked easier, yet wasn’t difficult to turn.

Plywood OC1 by Phil Green
