First, check out http://www.cboats.net
and click on "Rec Boats" and check out the following squirt boats:
Groove (more of a hybrid)
Other boats to look for-Edge, Aerobat. Or try cutting down a slalom boat and make your own (pictures posted to CBoats in the next few weeks...I marked and started drilling the Mave (Ok, ICK) over the weekend:) ).
I highly recommend hopping IN a squirt boat first before deciding to purchase one. Where are you located?
C-ya IN the Rivah!

Not only are there a few CBoaters in Maine (Brandon?), but John Frachella (designer of the Viper) is in Bangor! There are at least 2 or 3 current CBoaters that are usually around Greenville in the summer, and a lot of former CBoaters too.... I'll be heading to Maine sometime in June, most likely with my Groove on the roof to surf off Scarborough....
Maybe I'll C-ya up there!
P.S. Interested in coming to the Hudson Armada?-lots of CBoats to try! http://www.cboats.net/hudsonarmada.html

I'm from Maine>>>have Viper
I'm just outside of Bangor if you want to paddle. there is actually a wealth of c-boaters around. If you want to meet some I can take you out with some of my friends, next time we head out. I don't know when we will be out as they have their priorites backwards. Who needs work? : )
Who is your friend with a Viper?
