Re: Galasport CHOP SHOP 4m slalom boat alteration question

... down that transition some and reshape it and re-glass. None of this was super pretty, but it gave me a lot of shape flexibility, and the boat is a blast and does what I was seeking. And, it was easy to change the bow shape. I skipped end pours on this boat. When I wanted to very neatly shorten ...

Re: Ion VS "mid-length" modern boats

... 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.

Spark vs. Ocoee

... year at MKC. Based on what's available used in my area (Toronto), i'm looking at an Esquif Spark or Novacraft Ocoee. I liked the Ocoee and had a blast in it, wondering if the Spark may be a better fit, though? Any feedback appreciated. Thanks.

Hornet and Magnet comparisons

... for my liking but fun to mess around in. For reference, I'm 49 and about 180 lbs and use a 6-7" saddle depending on the hull shape. I am having a blast playing around with these hulls. If you end up near where I am and would like to try one feel free to contact me and take them out. So, first ...

Re: Help

Stick with it. Tippy boats can be pretty frustrating till you get the hang of then, but once you're there you'll have a blast. They'll also help your roll.

WTB: Bubba-sized user friendly OC-1

... antiques. If messing with the loaner Prodigy X this spring goes well and I don't find something attractive used, I'm likely to buy a new Condor, Blast, or Nitro. But if you do have something appropriate that you're looking to sell, please contact me.

Re: Comparing new OC-1 solos for 200+lbs

... Mainly I just know that I really enjoyed paddling my condor this past fall. Took it to the Gull River open canoe Slalom and had a blast in it running gates. And then also had a ton of fun in it on the fall releases in the states. Beaver, Moose, Yough etc.

Re: Blackfly Ion Max Weight

Whatever weight you are to use the Ion as a river runner means you will get some exercise. It is a short boat so not a lot of momentum. I paddled it down Clear Creek, Lilly to Nemo and had a blast. If you don't mind paddling a lot more than longer boats you can take it anywhere.

Re: Blackfly Ion Max Weight

The boat is a blast. I had an original when my weight was higher than your range and loved it. I lost weight, bought a new one and it is also a fun play boat. The aluminum mold version has more momentum than the original but lost ...

Re: Boat Width/Stability vs Height

... the mix is a L'Edge or L'Edge Light if you can find one. I'm primarily a decked boater, but paddled one in Costa Rica a few years back and had a blast (at that point I was around 160 lbs and 5'7' or so). A Phantom (again, if you can find one) is another boat you may want to watch for (weight ...
