Re: Mohawk Maxim trash?

Ditto on PAC's thoughts. I was only in one for a few minutes a long time ago. It requires more skill than your Probe. Folks who want to just cruise the river will probably not enjoy this boat. I only had a small wave to try it on. I thought it was responsive and would like to try one on a bigger fea...

Re: Mohawk Maxim trash?

Depends on your size and skill sets.... Found that larger paddles >180 and boaters that were not interested in a really playful aggressive platform didnt enjoy it it. It was okay for me ~190 but newer models are more enjoyable. That said if at a good price and willing to put in the time to dial into...

Mohawk Maxim trash?

Hello all I’m wondering,,,,, why does everyone trash on the Maxim?? I love Mohawk boats especially my Probe. I have a chance to buy a Maxim in near perfect condition but everyone says don’t do it, it’s an awful boat, you’ll constantly swim. I really want ...

Mohawk Maxim Outfitted with Bulkhead Saddle and Bilge Pump.

Outfitted with a bulkhead saddle from blackfly and an Attwood T1200 bilge pump that I have two SLA batteries for and a charger. Both the saddle and pump have less than one summer season of use. I am on the smaller side so not much foam on the saddle has been shaved away. Could be further carved out ...

Re: Option vs. maxim

I have been paddling an Option exclusively for the past two years. Solid performance on both rivers and creeks. Not boxy like the L'Edge or Octane. Accelerates and tracks well. A dry runner with soft, forgiving chines. Boofs well. Not very much to dislike. I'm 5'9", 165 lb. No plans to change boats.

Re: Option vs. maxim

Thanks Alan for your feedback on the MO. The Royalex Ocoee was my favorite Royalex boat in 50 years of paddling. Now that my height has shrunk even more from age I need short boats so I can carry them, hence the interest in the MO. I think I will stick with my plastic modern designs for their length...

Re: Option vs. maxim

Wendy- Just to be clear, I don't have a MO but have jumped in one numerous times over the last two seasons. Also, some background: I owned 2 plastic Ocoees since around 2000 then transitioned to my 2 FHs in the last 5 years. I am 6'3" and around 190-195. Though I am one of the oldest OC1ers in the l...

Re: Option vs. maxim

Since the Echoee was mentioned, I will put in a plug for my buddies at MT Canoes. They are doing a version of the Ocoee called the FH, after Frankie Hubbard. They also do a version called the MO (modified Ocoee) which is 15" shorter. I have one of the lightest FH's at 19 pounds and another around 30...

Re: Option vs. maxim

Option is definitely more stable than a Maxim. The Option's width is a major factor in that. The Option also doesn't have as sharp of chines, so it's more forgiving when tilted the wrong way. It's also easier to paddle flat. You're much less ...

Re: Option vs. maxim

If you want to go old school design with new school materials, check out the "Echoee" as well (based on the Ocoee of course...). I've paddled the Option and original L'Edge and liked them both, but really like the lighter weight of the Echoee and responsiveness. I'm roughly your size (a few inches s...

Re: Option vs. maxim

The Option and L’edge are excellent choices for your height weight and rivers. They are not as stable as a 91 but boof great and hold a ferry. The Lite L’Edge is really fun with its lighter weight than a 91 or Option. I have had all of them.
