Re: New Millbrook boat for wife - Flashback vs. Shacho

Bruce, thanks for your input. Since you've paddled each hull a good bit it sounds like, can you describe how they compare in more detail?

Re: New Millbrook boat for wife - Flashback vs. Shacho

ezwater, I had thought about the Rival also - I probably should have mentioned it too. I have wondered if it might be on the big side for her versus say a typical male. The Rival does appear to have a good all around hull design.

New Millbrook boat for wife - Flashback vs. Shacho

I'm going to purchase a new boat for my wife, and have narrowed the choice to Flashback vs. Shacho. Each of these has a shallow arch bottom without a lot of edge. The Shacho is shorter, with more rocker, and drier. I've paddled a Royalex Flashback of each generation but not a Shacho. This is going t...

Seeking Gyramax and/or Cascade

My 1991 Gyramax is still my cruising boat, but it has a growing crack in the rear edge of the cockpit rim after hundreds of days of use. I mainly paddle my outrigger c1 in the ocean now but have some whitewater trips planned for next summer and want a more seaworthy cruising c1. I'm looking for a go...

Re: Boat of the Week - Perception Gyra Max

My brother and I still paddle ours when we go cruising on whitewater. I had my 1991 red one on the Lower Yough and New Gorge a couple of weeks ago. I cracked two yellow cross-linked ones in the mid-80s until the red linear plastic one from 1991. It has a crack in the rear cockpit rim but is still vi...

Yellow Mohawk XL13 for sale - SOLD

This was my father's canoe. He bought it in 1991, and then paddled it with my brother and me on rivers up to the Ocoee and Chattooga until he got a Probe 14 in 2005. It has been kept in shade or inside its whole life and the Royalex is in good shape. It has straight gunwale sides - Mohawk added the ...

I presume you mean slalom boats maybe? Every wildwater boat I've ever owned or paddled has taken the same size skirt as fits my Gyramax - that is about 15 boats, C1 and C2, from a mid-80s boat through a early 2000s boat. I also have some separate skirts that fit our Hydra Duet that are the 1970s sty...

Vintage Hahn C1 for Sale

I think this is a 1970-something hull. It spent a long time in a basement without use before it came to me in 1997. I got it for my then twenty-something girlfriend (now wife), who now prefers OC1 - the only decked boat she'll get in is the C2 with me. I think the layup is all fiberglass. Condition ...

Email sent

I have a zip file with about 15 pics of the saddle, some with a ruler. These also show a similar saddle mounted in my Gyramax, and the foam piece that I'll include with it that interfaced with the back of the saddle. I had not received any email messages - may have been caught in the spam filter. Le...

Perception Gyramax saddle

Cleaning out surplus items after a move to Roanoke VA. This saddle was from a late 1980s Gyramax (#2 for me - still on #3 now from 1991) - it was used for less than 2 years before my boat cracked. It is the same type as sold into the 90s with the wings that just go a very short distance up each side...
