Re: Dagger Cascade = ??

I wouldn't claim that it is always faster than a slalom boat, but under certain circumstances it can be. It's main advantage is that it stays on top of the waves rather than punching through them. Right...my paraphrase was a bit inexact. But, it still seems, you took a boat everyone thinks as super...

Re: Dagger Cascade = ??

For a higher volume boat the River Elf Storm Chaser is pretty awesome. I'd much rather paddle it than a Cascade. Adam, What do you think is going on with the speed of the Cascade? The Storm Chaser numbers (8'5" x 27.75") would seem to make it slower than a Cascade. Is it just weight/stiffness? The ...

The PE fabric at Sweet's is only 12 bucks a yard, and is woven for composites work:

Re: Dagger Cascade = ??

Getting off my own topic, I'm kind of curious about higher volume Cascades. If you don't mind me asking, what was the problem you were trying to solve, and how did it work out? Thanks I like to feel totally "in" the boat, not "on top of it." I am an old and inflexible (in many ways) guy, and run a ...

Re: $25 Buffalo Canoe Project. Can I fix it?

To me, she looks not only worn out, but brittle. If that is the case, forget any high-end repair options. Go cheap. Rather than Gflex and fiberglass, I would buy System 3 epoxy from Merton's Fiberglass and polyester cloth from Sweet Composites. That combination results in a cheap, flexible, hard-to-...

Re: Dagger Cascade = ??

The list of "built-up" open boats is long. Sometimes the wetted surface was tweaked, other times, not so much. As Adam mentions, the Hahn was the base for the HD1, and, I believe, the Flashback. Twister was from a BatMax Fat Boy (aka Defiant) from a CudaMax Sweet had a bolt-on mold extention which m...

Still surly. Still for sale. Still won't ship, but will bring to NESS race. Still won't cut the shaft or carve you a new grip.

Re: Milbrook Hahn

Maybe drop Jim Michaud a note...he bought my Bill McKnight Hahn about eight years ago. At the time, I thought he might have been the only person in the WORLD interested in paddling Hahns. I am a person who knows a lot about boats which no one has any interest in. At any given time, I have a couple o...

Re: Old-school slalom C-1 and OC-1, Canon City, CO

Mold #2 and two open canoe molds I didn't even post went today. Wow.

I'll go to $150 on the XL Dynamic. It heads east on Wednesday.

Boats #2 and #3 are gone. To a highly discerning paddler, as you would expect.

I have pics of the Dynamic...drop me an email.

Old-school slalom C-1 and OC-1, Canon City, CO

I will be in Canon City, April 4-6. I have a couple boats and molds to move at that time. Sorry, no pics until I get there. Boat 1. 4 meter, Dynamic C-1. About 1" deeper than stock, no wings. Great shape. Crapy-but-functional workmanship. River-running lay-up. $300. Boat 2. 13' x 27 cm wide. OC-1 sl...

Re: Homemade OC1, Stability Issues

I think he is saying his wetted width is 28". The 24" is the flat part of the total width. If that is true, I still think more time in the boat might solve the stability problem. Of course, some boats need to be sold for 25 bucks to someone who wants to make a planter out of it (Yes, I know that for...

Re: Homemade OC1, Stability Issues

As Adam writes: welcome to the boat-building world. As far as stability is concerned, I ask, how much have you paddled it? Many paddlers have ended up with a too-tender canoe right out of the box...but, eventually figured the boat out. As far as tumblehome...Bob is right, some canoes can be yanked i...
