BLACKFLY Playboat For Sale!!

Post by Geoffingeorgia » Sat Oct 12, 2013 10:49 am

Blackfly original playboat. This is a unique little canoe with dramatically pointed and downsloped fore and aft to catch waves, do flips, cartwheels, barrel rolls and surf giant holes.
Unfortunately for me, I don't think I can learn all those things.
This boat in particular formerly belonged to current US World Champion, Jordan Poffenberger (if that matters to you at all)
It has normal river wear and probably 90% of the hull left
I'll throw in the 2 Harmony End Float air bags I bought for it for free.
If you'd like to ship it somewhere, I can throw it on a Greyhound for around $100 +/- extra, maybe even less, just be ready to pick it up from your local Greyhound station
If you'd like to see some videos go to Blackflycanoes.com
or search Youtube for Jordan Poffenberger and look for videos of him in the orange Blackfly. HEY! That's YOUR new BOAT!!
Now if only you can learn to do those amazing tricks...

Yep, Atlanta, but I run the Chattooga and Cartecay frequently, so I'm up in those areas.

Also you can ship it with Greyhound for under $100 to just about anywhere.

I'm asking $900. They're over $1300 new and this boat is scuffed, but not gouged and has tons of life left in it

Has the bottom, at the ends been heated and concaved/reshaped?

As best I can tell, this was something that Blackfly changed as each batch was built. I have seen others that have the identical "Spooning" and some with a different spoon shape and some without any at all.

Bump and a little price drop.
$800
I'll be at the Nantahala Spring Fling.
Shipping through Greyhound Bus lines is around $100 anywhere along the Eastern states and as far west to WI.
Any further I'd have to check rates again.

Also willing to trade for any of the following:

Blackfly Octane 85
Blackfly Octane 92
Blackfly Option

Esquif Zoom
Esquif Spanish Fly

Trade should be in similar condition, that is: no cracks, no welds, no oil canning and 75% hull life or better remaining

The concavity is a moulding defect not a design feature, lol.

Nope, it's not a defect, It's designed that way.

Is this boat still for sale or are we just looking at the defect vs design on here? I have been wanting to get back into C1 for Freestyle but this would be a sweet option. Is this the 6' or the 6'5" model?
