Re: Long Lost C-Boater wondering: what to paddle?

... slalom boat currently available from Galasport or Vajda is the El Scorcho from Galasport designed by Robin Bell for the Sydney Olympics - he's a big guy - not sure how it compares to the Zealot though. Sorry to hear about the shoulder dislocation but glad you have recovered - I've been there ...

Long Lost C-Boater wondering: what to paddle?

... have much desire to do that. My favorite whitewater paddling has always been on class 2-3 rivers (and I don't mind paddling in the ocean or on big open, windy flatwater like the Columbia River). I'm open to being sold on the Storm Chaser though! :-) Other than the Storm Chaser, is there anyone ...

Re: Learner Boat--Advice most appreciated

My prediction: if the Outrage is too big and heavy...the same will be true for the Ocoee and Ovation. Maybe, more so.

How did you like the stability, spin, and speed of the Zephyr? How do want the new boat to differ from the Zephyr?

Learner Boat--Advice most appreciated

... I had a choice between Esquif Zephyr and MadRiver Outrage. I am small (5'4", 133 pd) and not great with upper body strength. The MadRiver was too big and heavy for me. I have been paddling Zephyr last season--nothing extreme, and still learning. I can balance pretty well... There was a recent ...

Re: C1 conversion bulkhead questions

... and I still fell out of the boat before adding thigh straps. A strapless system may work in mainly low volume runs, but in Ottawa and Quebec type big water it does not work well, the forces in when hitting big features are just too high. TGG!

C1 conversion bulkhead questions

... is enough room to set the pegs so that when I straighten my feet I stay in, and to exit I flex my feet. However, in a C1, there isn't room for my big feet to straighten and flex as much. Thanks for any advice.

Repair Questions- for cracks in hull

Re: Ion VS "mid-length" modern boats

... than your Outrage or other boats listed. I preferred the first generation for drops and punching through holes but both do well creeking and in big SE water. If you don't mind spending more energy putting in the extra strokes the boat is a blast to paddle, play and carry.

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
