... we've all done since that rescue), I bet/hope they are not using little poly ropes. That should tell us something. Pat. p.s. I just got a Level 6 "Dragonfly Pro" rescue rope, but no reviews yet. p.p.s. The other thing I changed after that incident was carrying a biner, pulley and prusik on my PFD ...

That's accurate, as far as I've been told in conversations with them. They have all the Curtis molds, not the Hemlock ones. Companion may follow the Dragonfly. Either way it's great to see some of the best boats ever made back out there. I was getting tired of hunting Craigslist for them.

I don't know the status on Hemlock but my understanding is that Colden Canoe will be building some of the old Curtis models. The DragonFly first I think.

Dang it, until recently a local shop had a brand new Curtis Dragonfly that has since been shipped to Missouri. Unfortunately I was wrong in my assessment that they would never sell it at their asking price and that I'd eventually get it for a song :lol: ...

Hemlock Canoes / Dave Curtis

Does anyone know what is up with Hemlock Canoes? The site is gone, and I can only find old info on them. I've added some info to the site of past boats they built, designed by Harold Deal, and was hoping to find a few images (SRT, Crossfire, Dragonfly).

Curtis Dragonfly?!

mrussell - Maybe this should be a new thread, but I'm interested in something you said - you have a Curtis Dragonfly. There is a pristine-never-been-in-the-water-has-to-be-20-year-old Curtis Dragonfly upstairs at a local paddle shop. It has been a glorifed PFD display rack for ...

1. Both the inwales and outwales of my Royalex Caption are 3/4" X 3/4" with top and bottom of both rounded. My Kevlar Curtis Dragonfly has the following: Inwales: 11/16" thick X 1/2" wide, no rounding Outwales: 3/4" thick X 7/8" wide, top outer edge rounded 2. I wouldn't use epoxy, I'd ...

combined

... and waves, but it was a different challenge. I think I could really get interested in a combined class (it would give me a reason to go get that Dragonfly!). But my problem, race-wise is not the classes, but the locations - the closest I know of are at the Nantahala and either there are less ...

... their money in products that bring their corporation the MOST money. Unfortunately for the future of racing, this doesn't bode well. That Curtis Dragonfly was designed by Harold Deal many a moon ago. It's still a viable boat for that class or high performance river cruising. That price is over-inflated, ...

Combined class

Speaking of the combined class - anybody familiar with the Curtis Dragonfly? There is one in mint, never seen the water condition, whiling away the years upstairs at a local paddleshop, serving as a display bin for PFDs. There is a lable on it saying it was ...

Dagger stopping production of OC1 Phantom and Rival

... Both boats of similar design, quite radical with flaired shoulders (theycall 'em "vetts") which are sort of a exagerated version of the old Curtis Dragonfly shape, and a differential chine-- hard in the stern quarter and soft up front. Posted on Aug 26, 2002, 9:30 AM
