Very cool to see some of Frankie's designs back in production!!
Spanish Fly is too small for me,
but if you start making Vipers I'll buy a 12. ;)
Canoeing isn't a sport...its an art. Unfortunately, I am not exactly Michelangelo.

The Superlite is floating me fine at 200 pounds. Very happy.

Nice review of a great boat. Thanks Wendy, and Esquif for remaking the boat (I have one of the Sauvage ones).

The S Fly is the most fun boat I've owned. I wish I still had time to paddle so I could justify upgrading to a Superlite. I think the Fly handles pretty good even at 220+. It's very stable full of water and that's a plus because its a wet ride no matter what you weigh.
