Re: Hornet and Magnet comparisons

Bob P, that is a kind offer and I would like to test paddle it sometime. I really like testing out different hulls. I don't see myself getting down to NOC anytime soon unfortunately - I am constrained on travel for paddling with middle and high school age kids each in sports, which is why I so often...

Re: Hornet and Magnet comparisons

Adam, just loan me your Amoeba for a while and I'd be glad to do a comparison. :-) I paddled the Hornet again last night - the speed is a bit intoxicating. I easily made a power move onto a wave using only cross forward strokes, where normally I have to switch hands to let me power onto that wave us...

Hornet and Magnet comparisons

So, I purchased a Hornet (made by Millbrook - in near new condition) and a Magnet (made by Valley Mill Boats - well used but a lot of life left) this past weekend, funnily enough each from around Chapel Hill NC. I'd been looking at each hull for a while. First, I like faster boats - I have years pad...

Love it - thanks for sharing.

That is definitely more advanced than we have worked up to with our troop so far.

Re: So, will one of these Millbrook boats work for my trip?

Look for a used Mad River Monarch - you are welcome to try mine out. If I (sadly) could only have one boat that would be it. It is very similar to the Kruger Sea Wind - it is the Gen 2 hull, and more like the Sea Wind hull than the Gen 1 Sawyer Loon. Fast, forgiving, carrries a big load, integrated ...

Re: I need to demo some Millbrook boats.

Got a Shacho in Roanoke VA you are welcome to try out.

I’ve also got a River Elf Storm Chaser which is even lighter and pretty comfy.

Re: River Elf Storm Chaser M - used - for sale

Still for sale.

Would consider trade for a new Jackson Karma RG (which is worth less than the Storm Chaser but is a boat I’d like for tripping/ocean use).

Once you use a glass boat like this it is hard to carry a plastic boat far.

River Elf Storm Chaser M - used - for sale

I bought this boat a little less than 3 years ago and have paddled it about 6 times. I was looking for a "modern" C1 to replace my trusty Gyramax and wanted to try this one out. It is a cool boat and very nicely built, but it was just not quite what I was looking for. [I've ended up in a Nirvana L c...

C-boat for 120 lb 11 year old to learn - which to pick

My pretty big 11 year old son is ready to learn more of running his own boat (after years paddling a kiddie Thrillseeker following my daughter and me in our Mad River Howler, as well as a bit of time in a surfski in the ocean). I've got several C1s from which to pick for him and am trying to figure ...

Re: Outfitting my new Nirvana L

I’m continuing to play around with the boat. I’m really liking the hull - good edges for turning, great stability, predictable and speed for a short boat. I tried yesterday with the saddle 4” inside the inner cockpit rim - this appeared to be almost right on the balance point, as leaning forward or ...

Outfitting my new Nirvana L

I've been on the elusive hunt for a new cruising C1 that I like and for regular runs down my local Johns Creek that is reasonably forgiving and comfortable for me at 48. After years paddling wildwater boats and using my Gyramax as my cruising C1, I don't like really slow boats, and most new hulls ar...

New to me New Wave Grokshark C2

With help from transport from several people I recently acquired a full cut New Wave Grokshark C2 from Matt Kelso. Matt took great care of the boat and it is in great condition. I am adjusting the outfitting some as any good C-boater does with a new hull. In doing so, I've removed the original outfi...
