If open boating (and C-1) has declined over the years, I wonder what the age range is of the people who read and use the C Forum? I'm 61 and wondering how many people my age and older are still paddling? I'm not sure ho...

I'm shipping a Galasport paddle, which as you know is kinda pricey...so I'd like to know it'll be haddled well. Any idea...

Taureau for Tall person?

I'm just hearing about this boat. I'm 6'5" and 215. Sounds like it might be a bit small for me? Anyone out there with some advice?
I do fine in my Ocoee and am OC1/2 certified instructor by ACA.

Thanks for any advice.
