Re: Boat of the Week - Hydra Duet

The Duet certainly didn't handle like a good slalom C2, but it certainly handled better than a berrigan end-hole C2 :-) It was pretty stable, and was very solid for taking an inexperienced paddler down the river. It really came down to how well you outfitted your boat ...

My first C boat was a John Berry design, a C2 that I paddled with my brother Doug for several years - the 'Berrigan'. Fond memories!

I think the first c-1's and c-2's were derived from canoes that had decks added (a la Berrigan).

There's enough gray area that I don't think it's really worth arguing about.

I'd be glad to build a Berrigan for you. It would cost a lot more than $50 though.

... width, and rocker than I'd like...but it was made in Riparius where the race ends, and another fellow (likely my only "competition" will be in a Berrigan) -Sage (likely the only time I'd use it in whitewater, and though it's plastic, it's long and has little rocker). There are others I've discounted ...

Thank you both for the corrections! Though I'd like to know more of what the non-Berrigan C2 is. I'll be fixing them both Friday night or Sat. (working late tonight).

Berrigan

Sorry, but the C-2 in the photo is not a Berrigan (the one in the catalog shot is). My parents owned two of them. The one in the photo resembles an old Czech maybe.
