Buying Advice

... problem; class III, 50/50). I’m 5’ 11” and 150#. I’ve also paddled an Esquif Nitro (stable but slow) and an Esquif Raven (stable but felt like a big bathtub). I think I’ve narrowed my search to either Millbrook or Blackfly in part because I live in Vermont and I could pick up a boat myself. Not ...

Re: Varathane or Varnish for Flatwater Canoe canoe?

... will do a full strip and start oiling the gunnels. The boat is stored in a garage whenever it isn't used and it is very dry here so rot is not too big of an issue. There is no rot in the gunnels even though it is 30 years old. Thanks again

Harmony Terrapin C-1 sprayskirt for sale or swap (SOLD)

I have a sweet, almost perfect Terrapin sprayskirt and it seems just a little too big for my New Wave Descender. The rand is in incredible shape. I think it probably fits a bigger cockpit like the slightly more recent plastic C-1s like the Atom. Medium tube. I'll ...

Re: Under rated boats...

... designed for my local wave. The Viper is fast, surf's well on the river and ocean, plus I can stern squirt it on flatwater. It's my go to boat for big, scary stuff. How many Amoebas have been built? I tried Adam's at an armada and really liked it. It's faster that I thought it would be, but I couldn't ...

... of the first center hole C2s. The ends were pretty fragile, but if you trimmed a foot off each end, they made great river runners. I was also a big fan of the Triumph C2 (Fritz and Lecky Haller) - it was a follow-on to the Argumax with enough volume to river run, but could still pivot. Also ...

Re: Under rated boats...

... Giant, US made recreational C2's were only available as hand me downs. I know there are still racing hulls that can be made to order, but it is a big commitment for most occasional C2 teams.

Re: C1 & C2 Boating

I'm with you on the speed. I don't think I'd want it for big stuff. I tend to pick up the speed when I get scared. Lol. The storm chaser is faster than my Sith, but no match for my vipers or 4 meter vajda nova. Other than the inability to pivot, I think ...

Re: Self Support canoe trip on the GRAND?

... 10-ton crane required to pick up one of those boats. They put in somewhere way upstream...like, Glenwood Springs, CO. So, they did manage some big front-country portages. I have to think there have been others. I mean, dudes swam the whole thing, at least once! Roy

Re: Hornet and Magnet comparisons

I think the Magnet would hold weight equal to or better than a Gyramax. It is a pretty big boat for glass.

It can be tough to make a well informed decision on such a big purchase when there are not always demo opportunities all over the place, but I've sent out hundreds of Silverbirch boats throughout North America, ...

... tucked under one of the air-bag lines. Works fine and have to guess that there are lots of similar options. Since a roll attempt, swim, or even big curling waves put river water in my nose/ eyes/ ears/ mouth, I've not been at all worried about river water on the tube's bite valve. You might ...

Branch of the Potomac through Petersburg WV. on an annual camping trip and discovered that this boat with a 100#'s of gear and paddler handled big wave trains really well when the paddler was a few feet behind centerline of the boat.

Any feedback on the XL version of the zephyr? I’ve not paddled either the original or the new big boy version but it does look interesting. I paddle a Viper 12 but it has some “issues” & I’m looking for a good III & IV river runner. I’ve grown to like the edges on the ...

Re: Millbrook Big Boy as OC1?

Klaus,
If your friend is comfortable in the Defiant, the Big Boy would be even more comfortable with a lot more volume and boat width.
