Re: River Elf Storm Giant

Thank you for the full report! I'll add a few comments, though your review is much more complete than mine will be at this point (and the two of you have far more time in C2's!) I've had my Storm Giant out once now (North Branch of the Potomac) and it performed well. Stable, and amazingly comfortabl...

Re: Spring 2019 Armada

A nice fun run on Saturday - they had plenty of water so it was a 1500 CFS release which was a lot of fun. Not too many folks on the river that day (admittedly it IS April, but I don't think there were a dozen cars in the put in parking lot).

Camping at Paddler's Lane in Confluence was great too.

Re: Spring 2019 Armada

Funny you mention that - that is my favorite / most memorable armada as well, especially the lower section where the tree branches are low. "floating" among the trees and mist was magical.

That said, for hauling my daughter down there 60's and sunny sounds good;)

Re: Spring 2019 Armada

A few of us are meeting at the North Branch of the Potomac takeout in Bloomington on Saturday (4/27) at 10 (ish) to run shuttle and run the river. Camping at Paddlers Lane in Confluence Sat. night. If anyone wants to join us please do! I'll be paddling the Storm Giant :)

Re: Homemade Bulkhead saddle?

Under "Site-Outfitting" below the CBoats.net logo there is a tremendous amount of information (on other topics too!). Here is the current link that should work: https://www.cboats.net/outfitting/ Searching will likely turn up LOTS of hits as well (it has been a common topic over the past 20+ years;)...

Re: Spring 2019 Armada

Right now here is the plan - if you want to join in please do! Saturday, April 27th meet up at the North Branch of the Potomac take out (or perhaps the brick building nearby we have in the past?) at 10 am to figure out shuttle and such. In theory I'll be paddling the Storm Giant. Saturday night - ri...

River Elf Storm Giant

A few years ago after getting my Storm Chaser I commented to Chris that they should lengthen it and make a recreational C2 as it had great potential to be an awesome boat, and there really aren't many recreational C2's out there (Hydra Duet and Canoah Americana are the only two that come to mind in ...

Re: Spring 2019 Armada

2019 schedule has been posted... looks like a release the 27th and 28th of April (weekend after Easter). At this point I'm planning on making it down, and am trying to figure out where to camp (Robert Craig @ Jennings Randolph lake opens the following weekend of course...). Mountain Meadows at Deep ...

Re: Spring 2019 Armada

I figured you would be;)

Right now I'm hoping there will be a release the weekend of the April 20/21, as that is our only free weekend from the 13/14th of April through mid July. Thankfully the first weekend in May is the WW Derby so I'll be getting some paddling in;)

Spring 2019 Armada

It's been quite a few years since we did a spring get together, and I'm already thinking of heading south in late April for some paddling (for better or worse the 3rd weekend in May commitment that has kept me north for 7 years now is likely to continue for 3 more years). We don't know the schedule ...

Re: Mosquito Burrito - A canoe for kids!

I hope it happens - it would be awesome to have a 30 lb kids canoe (though for some kids that weighs 1/2 what they do;) ). Hopefully the price point works better than the Composite Creations Splash (which is an awesome boat IMhO). Other's have done composite designs before too... Massive? Millbrook ...

Re: Boat Width/Stability vs Height

Yes, and there is more of a difference in an open boat, particularly a high-sided open boat. Stability will be based on seat height and boat design (same boat or very similar hull design with a lower seat will be more stable). If you are short of torso and arm you should focus more on the width at t...

Re: "Where We Canoe" Episode 1

Looks like a lot of fun! The Hudson and Sac are a lot of fun, but the Winni looks more interesting and lots of choices of different routes to mix it up. Kudos to you for taking the time and effort to make a video and share it!

Re: Boat Width/Stability vs Height

Depending on your budget you might want to check out the "Echoee" as well. I'd recommend a smaller, or lighter (or both) boat in general given your weight, but it will depend on what type of water you like to paddle as well.
