Louie your boats got worse as they went, past the OCA. Now that's the boat you should still be in, especially at your age. :lol:
You know what they say about guys with long boats.............. I have a 16 footer!

Ya it was interesting. I drove down to ALF 2007 without a boat and bought it from Bill Reap - had my first run in the snow on crab orchard creek I think. There may have been some swimming that day. Had a great few days at ALF that year and can't wait to bring that little orange boat back to TN.

Jackson Superstar - Kayak
Dagger Crazy 88 ) - bought as kayak, became first C1
CU Fly - My Favourate boat
BlissStick Scud - I miss this one
Pyranha MicroBat 250 - total pig, but it got me used to using a big boat...
Dagger Nomad - felt bland, very easy to paddle though
Liquid Logic Jefe - got the shell for free. Great stuff, bit tippy but I'm determined to get used to it; now has a 2' long crack in the bottom, gets welded after almost every trip .
Savage Prelude - Needs reoutfitting, the last two owners where about 8" shorter than me.
Joshua Kelly - "More George Smiley than James Bond"

CBoats Moderator - Not necessarily representing the CBoats staff though...(I'll use words like "moderator", "We" and "CBoats" to make it clear when I am)
