Expedition C-1--Katana?

I am looking for suggestions for a good functional substitute for a Dagger Cascade, which has been my long-haul boat for 30 years. I just can't find one, and maybe shouldn't even be looking for one!
Are there any production model C-1s in this category?
Suggestions for good kayaks to convert?
The Katana looks good.
The Green boat is too narrow apparently.

A glass Cascade by Class Five boats.
Well there not showing any on their site at the moment but they did make it at one time. For a C1 their prices are very reasonable.

I'd highly recommend the piranha everest.

A few options depending on what you're looking for:
Millbrook Hornet (narrowed cascade; literally. Nice boat). Composite
Millbrook Amoeba (think high volume slalom boat; probably my favorite "big volume" boat). Composite
River Elf Storm Chaser (composite creek boat, could work as multi-day trip boat (as could the two above))
Robson Finkenmeister (plastic creek boat... they are around!)

More info on what you plan on paddling would help - by "long haul" do you mean long days, wilderness trips, or ?
