Re: any c-2's for sale out there?

... 70s vintage rather than 80s. Center-cockpit C-2s had already come on strong in the mid-70s with the Gemini series. Late 70s into the early 80s the Paramax & ParamaxII were the dominant C-2s. By the 83' race season newer C-2s like the Torrent (followed by the TorrentXL in '84), the Triumph, and ...

Jim, you're certainly right. The Argumax (a/k/a Paramax II) was a substantial improvement on endhole C-2s and even on the Gemini series that launched the ...

Having built and raced a Paramax II back in the early 80s, I can say that, while you can cut down a Paramax to reduce its length, taking full ...

Cutting down a C-2

I have an old fiberglass C-2 (maybe a Paramax) that is 15' long that I am considering restoring. It has been suggested to me to cut it down to the newer 4.1 meter (13.5') length. This seems appealing since some of the length, especially at the ...

If it is a Paramax I would say it is a good boat for river running. I paddle one down in WVa and they are easy to roll by one person and handle very well.

Don't know what JRS did with his molds I guess you would have to ask him. All of my boats were black JRS boats. Including the C-2's (except the paramax, which was "local" -- ie, like #2 from the mold.) I still have 3 C-2s, none legal now, but I always refused to sell them as "sweetie boats". (No ...
