Re: Mohawk OCA / Warsaw Rocket

First, I do not believe Blue Hole used the Uniroyal-molded hulls for the OCA. I always was told, Blue Hole molded their own hulls. While I have never had the two, side by side, I remember the shapes being clearly different. The OCA, for instance, pulls the volume ...

Mohawk OCA / Warsaw Rocket

I have in my possession what I believe to be a Mohawk OCA / Warsaw Rocket, I know that Uniroyal was selling hulls to whatever company back in the 60/70's that wanted to re-badge the hulls to their own Flavor. I have seen Perception Chatooga / Nantahala ...

$25 Buffalo Canoe Project. Can I fix it?

... own another canoe and don't have enough money to buy one that I would want so I thought what the heck. ;) I really love the classic Blue Hole OCA look so I thought it would be awesome if I could put $100-200 in it and maybe ride it for a couple years till I could afford something better. I ...

Re: boats for sale: Batmax C-1, Torrent C-2

... weight as fun boats? I'm not a big talented paddler, but want to try something smaller than my existing boats....I currently paddle solo in a 15' OCA, a MR Courier and an Eclipse, and do whitewater in an old school MR Synergy 14'. A smaller boat sounds like fun again.... let me know what you think ...

How do you read the serial number to know 1986?
Our mid '80's Starburst begins with SRA. Our friends Sunburst begins the same. He has a 17' OCA labeled 17A he told me last evening.

Re: Yellow Blue Hole Sunburst

I've got an OCA on the trailer with vinyl gunwales - it's got decks to fit so I'm pretty sure they are original. Serial number indicates 1986.

Re: Yellow Blue Hole Sunburst

Well, I have it from the source, Juanita Guinn. The OCA does not mean aluminum. It means open canoe model A. The wooden gunnel was an open canoe model B. There was no vinyl gunneled OCA as I suspected, but did not want to say without checking. :D

Actually it referred to the original Bluehole Open Canoe - Open Canoe Aluminum (ie: Aluminum Gunnels) - There was also OC-V for vinyl gunnels.

Brian,

Not sure about what the "a" stand for, but seems like I heard it meant "all purpose". Open Canoe All Purpose (OCA) is my best guess. I'll ask Juanita Guinn next time we paddle.

Re: Yellow Blue Hole Sunburst

ha ha - I'd love an old OCA - talk about old school... Good luck with the new toy. Yes, I paddled tandem my first trip down the Ocoee with Bill Scarborough (Billy Bob) in the stern of an OCA. One of my favorite runs on that river. :D ...

Re: Yellow Blue Hole Sunburst

... kneeling thwarts, etc? Nick, I am not sure. It has a slat seat with double thigh straps as we used to use. I remember Juanita Quinn paddling an OCA by turning it backwards with no thigh straps on all the Plateau creeks and rivers. If the deal goes through as expected, I will post photos.
