Re: River Elf Storm Chaser

Awesome review Rick. You should be doing these for canoe and kayak magazine or something - very entertaining and informative at the same time! I really appreciate you taking the time to compose and post that and happy to hear you're satisfied with the boat and that it has met your expectations. Oh b...

Re: River Elf Storm Chaser

Thanks road_warrior64. We don't have plans for an open boat at this time - we're mainly focusing on cboats in the short term. We do have a new "M", "M/S", and "S" version of the Storm Chaser in the works though - hopefully the mold will be ready by the end of the year. John, most folks are using a 6...

Re: River Elf Storm Chaser

Hey Adam - thanks for the nice comments on the boat and we'll be looking forward to hearing your feedback after you get it on the water. I think you'll be pleased :) In response to the thread so far: We do use a kevlar bias tape for the outside seam for toughness and durability and you're right, its...

Hi Brian,
Just ran across this tonight - sorry for being slow with the response. Yeah, I could probably work that out depending on the date. What weekend were you thinking? You can contact me at: chrissoileau(at)yahoo(dot)com

Re: Big Momma Helen (Short) C-1 for sale - $275 OBO

Here's another pic of the boat with the grab loops and "dry" so you can see the faded deck. The other pics I had just washed it and it was still wet. Also, decided to reduce my price to $275 OBO.

Re: Big Momma Helen (Short) C-1 for sale - $275 OBO

Thats cool. Did you also modify the bottom of the hull? It looks flatter than the original zealot with a bit harder chines too. Looks almost like a nereus in that pic...Looks good!

Re: Big Momma Helen (Short) C-1 for sale

It paddles really well and would be a great rec boat for someone. Off the water it feels heavy for a composite boat at 30 lbs - but on the water you won't notice the extra weight. Basically it was designed combining a slightly widened zealot stern with a narrower and shrunken bow of a trophy C-2 - w...

SOLD - Big Momma Helen (Short) C-1 for sale - $275 OBO

This is a one of a kind boat built in 2002 from the "Big Momma Helen" 13' 2" slalom boat mold. It was built as a "short version" with an actual length of 10' 9" for recreational use. Deck is carbon, spheretex and kevlar; hull is all kevlar with some carbon/kevlar reinforcement here and there. Minice...

Re: River Elf Storm Chaser C-1

Hi Yukon, We've only built a handful of them and currently only 3 in the SE U.S. Will you be in the NC mountains when you are here in October or elsewhere in NC? There are a few other folks in that area who have recently inquired so I could probably meet you during that time for a demo. you can emai...

Hey guys, unfortunately, we are not going to make it to the Armada next weekend as previously planned. Hopefully we'll be back up that way sometime later in the summer or early fall. Have a fantastic time!

Re: River Elf Storm Chaser C-1

Unfortunately, we are not going to make it to the Armada next weekend. I was truly hoping that some of you would get a chance to paddle our new River Elf boat at that time but due to unforseen circumstances and scheduling conflicts we aren't going to be able to make it. As an alternative, we are dis...
