Re: Anyone know anything about this C1?

Hard to say definitively, but I'm guessing Extrabat due to the length of the bow spike (I think) - it was shortened compared to the original Batmax and SuperBat. The bow id also fairly narrow. Could also be something in the Fanatic line

Re: Anyone know anything about this C1?

I'd say Batmax, given the wings and shape of the bow. If not a Bat, it's definitely in that family.

Re: Can anyone ID this slalom C1?

It is a Batmax of some sort. There were several versions. The original came out in 1982 and the Super Batmax in 1986. At least one more version since then, maybe two. This looks like a Super but it could be a later version; I ...

Re: Under rated boats...

Re: Twister Vs. Edge Thoughts from the riff-raff

... of the Twister. FWIW, word from guys who were part of the groups designing the boats. Mark Clarke says the Twister is a built-up, extra-rocker, BatMax. Bob Connolly says the same for the Defiant, except he started with the CudaMax. I never paddled an Edge, but, to me, it looks real wet for big ...

Re: Batmax upper weigth limit ?

I paddled a batmax at between 205 - 210 with no major issues. For comparison, my extrabat was seams in the water at 205.

Re: Batmax upper weigth limit ?

It's been a long time, but I remember the Batmax as being fairly high volume compared to all but the later (Extrabat-on) designs. At 150 lbs, I had a very hard time doing pivots.

Re: Batmax upper weigth limit ?

My memory grows feeble, but I want to say 160-170. I paddled an Extrabat at 185+ a couple decades ago, worked out alright.

Batmax upper weigth limit ?

Any thoughts?

I've been talking about getting an old 4 meter boat to play around in for years, I may have just hot the put-up or shut-up point and was wondering what I should consider as the upper paddler weight limit for a Batmax.

Thanks

Back on the market - I think it's a Batmax

Back on the market, kids are done with it, nice little first boat - think it might be a Batmax, no idea who made it or what the layup is (Apple is suspected based on the deck stripes but there is no label in the boat). It's been shortened to 11' 10", pretty decent work. ...

Re: boats for sale: Batmax C-1, Torrent C-2

... Greetings! Sorry, but I don't think either boat would be a good solution for you. If you found that a Gyramax sat too low in the water, then the Batmax would sit far lower still. I have an old Gyramax as well as the Batmax that is for sale, and the Gyramax has 2X to 3X as much volume. The Torrent ...

Re: boats for sale: Batmax C-1, Torrent C-2

I'm in Niagara Falls area and am interested in either or both boats as an experiment. I am an OC boater for the most part these days, as I am not as small as I used to be.....I gave up my GyraMax when it just plain sat too low in the water.....ugh..... I was thinking about these two boats and possib...
