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

... My first whitewater boat was a woodstrip Stinkeye (Blink) that I added 6 inches to in the middle, sort of a 20/30 (or 20/15 depending on the perspective) :D I still love that boat, it only gets hauled out of the barn for special occasions like Gualeyfeast but then it winds up going down the ...

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

With a top-heavy build at 6' 1" a 31" inseam and 190+ lbs, I've been paddling the Octane 91 on everything for the past couple of years. For perspective, this summer it was just so good on a (10~11K cfs) Main Salmon self support trip with 40+ lbs of camping gear. A couple of weeks later, on hades's ...

Re: C1 to OC1 or not

Thanks guys for your perspective. I can say that kboating is not an option, my back would not take it, C1 is therapy. I will stick with the C1's as it just doesn't make sense to make a huge investment in glass open boats, because no ...

Re: Tandem communication

... important when you're talking a 16' or 17' loaded tandem. How this works is if the bow paddler begins to make a maneuver and from the stern's perspective a different maneuver is better or easier, the stern paddler calls this maneuver out to the bow and begins to initiate it. The bow paddler ...

Re: Northwest Paddle Fest 2017

I didn't make it to Methow last year (super excited) but for the rest of the PNW, I went drytop all summer. I don't think I wore a drysuit once. To put my cold water tolerance into perspective, I also wore a drysuit for the last two ALF races, but that's about as cold as I'll go

Re: Bend whitewater park, anyone have a boat I can borrow?

Sorry for the 1st person only perspective. Here is my first day paddling the superstar on whitewater on Maryland wave on the Potomac.

Re: New Freestyle OC1?

I know I could get a composite Kaos and I really should try one, but I know yours will be built from a canoeists perspective :) Otherwise most of my C1 requirements are equally valid, and if you could have something prototyped that would take me at say 110kg (aiming ...

Big Dog OC 1 Prototype

I saw a nice video of it on Vimeo. It's shot from the boaters perspective, and doesn't show the boat really. It was posted 2 months ago. Does anyone have any information about such a critter? Thanks-M-

gear to borrow during WOR/Trout Unltd question(attn:ezwater)

... the paddling population in general is like. From what I've read, it's quite contentious, but I'm much more interested in the "boots on the ground" perspective than that of the organizations themselves. Up here in Maine, there's quite a bit of crossover between the fly fishing and paddling communities ...
