T-Formex Esquif Zephyr

Anybody have a Zephyr in the Washington/ Oregon/ lower BC area I could maybe demo? It has always looked like a good design to my eyes and with T-Formex it's pretty tempting for a medium-length WW boat. No hurries/ no worries

Re: did Dagger steam bend Ocoee gunwales?

Just a thought-- for furniture and wooden boat parts in general, useful steam bending requires air-dried wood, not kiln dried. Of course 99% of wood you buy is gonna be kiln dried. Dagger might have been buying large-ish lots of green ash, milling it down to an inch or so, selecting the straight gra...

Re: Comparing new OC-1 solos for 200+lbs

With a top-heavy build at 6' 1" a 31" inseam and 190+ lbs, I've been paddling the Octane 91 on everything for the past couple of years. For perspective, this summer it was just so good on a (10~11K cfs) Main Salmon self support trip with 40+ lbs of camping gear. A couple of weeks later, on hades's c...

Foam side panels in mini-cell bulkhead boats?

L 'Edge, Blackfly, Silverbirch all seem to put some kind of foam side panel in their cockpits. Not so much in strap-outfitted boats. I'm assuming the reason is extra buoyancy; is there more to it?

Re: Silverbirch Creeker

So the word "lust" does not apply yet for me. But granted, no actual dimensional/ non-SB team, production model reviews will be in for a while. Maybe this is being too obvious, but say if it were a bit more boat than the L 'Edge lite and a touch less boat than the Octane 91 (and maybe a bit wider, e...

Re: foot pegs - or no pegs?

An alternative to maybe try: instead of ankle blocks, I've been using shin blocks. Basically taller foam blocks right behind the knee pads. They are sized so that when on the pegs, weight is on my knees and toes. Then when I need a bit of relief, I push my feet to the side of the pegs and relax ankl...

Viper 12 to try in northern WA or southern BC?

'Have only paddled the V11 and liked it but it felt small, would like to try the 12 for a possible slalom boat since I do like edges... glass or plastic doesn't matter at this point. Cheers, Pat
