Beluga Saddles ?

I am going to redo the outfitting on an old Dagger Ocoee (presently Mike Yee outfitting). I am starting to like the idea of a longer saddle instead of a pedestal and was looking at their site since a link is posted here. Not many dealers in the US, but thought someone probably has used one before. T...

Great video clip. :D

I know it came up in a post a couple of weeks back about grabbing the gunnels...watch closely and see how many of the spills have at least one person grabbing the gunnels. :o

Just say that you are practicing your wet exit (C1) because you are going to be running a Class VI next weekend and, well, you might have to swim for real there. :P

If you're gonna lie, lie BIG! :oops:

Thanks for the video, Craig. Obviously a lot o expense in setting up the molds and machinery, but looks like the cost of the materials and labor would be pretty low.

I'm sure that the initial costs are more for production, not sure of the ongoing. I know that as a consumer, if the material turns out to be as great as it appears, the value is going to be there.

Make an Ocoee in both materials and I know which I would choose. :)

Possibly that the boating public would like the plastic (i.e. less expensive for same model) boat, and would no longer pay for the royalex boats (higher margins)? Honestly, if the Trintex proves itself over a few years, I'm sure Bell and others will be jumping on the bandwagon or Esquif will start o...

I wasn't really thinking "tough" when I saw the pose...was just wondering where the funky DEVO hat was ;)

I think you might be on the right track with the Viper 11 if you love the Ocoee. On the Nanty a couple of weeks back, a Viper owner paddled my Ocoee...from his comments, the Ocoee has more edge at the ends while the Viper is a little looser on the ends with the edge mainly near the center of the boa...

Dang he was flying down the river! The way he ran through there with no hesitation, I'd say he knows that river pretty well ;)

I think NRS may have just what you are looking for. I have nothing against yakkers either...really appreciated them when I completely replaced the outifitting in a Cascade and took it down Patton's Run before making any adjustments at all ;) I had just gotten the boat and it was my first, 2nd, and 3...

Yeah....very tame ;) I guess our new boaters will have to search the forum for all the good stuff instead of having it all the goodies in one thread ;). I've had a couple of people paddle my boat before...fun to watch when they get in a little bit of squirrely water. :oops: It's a wonderful learning...

Paddling near West Jefferson, NC ???

I'm going to be in the West Jefferson area, camping with friends and family this weekend. I'd love to get a little paddling in, but not sure what is there. I'd love to paddle something cass II - III at least one day while I'm there on an OC1. If you have any recommendations, I'd appreciate it. Thank...
