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.

In praise of the Blackfly Condor

... because he has the "golden permit". Selway is the hardest permit to get next to the Grand Canyon, or so he says. Yep, I wanna, but I just sold my big canoe and the put in date is less than 2 weeks out. Sigh. Probably won't happen. But I get an idea to ask to borrow Heavy D's Condor (his C-boats ...

Re: Advice on removing glued plastic D rings

... toluene, scraping, a bit of a dremel. In the end, the best was to just grind it out, as was suggested, and although it took a while and made a big mess, it did the least damage to the rubber/vinyl topsheet over the ABS. Its easy to tear off that vinyl topsheet in little bits, so now I have ...

South Eastern First Descents, Overflow, etc.

... AW posts and was wondering what Alan Singley and Allan & Robin Socemdog were paddling when they were running first descents of Overflow and Big Creek back in the day. Alan was apparently running first descents of Overflow in sections solo, with his dog on the banks of the creek (okay, whatever, ...

... 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...

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 ...

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: 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.
