Re: What is the most difficult CBoat you've ever paddled?

I'll go with ACE III as well. I never could stay upright in that boat for very long.

I was just fine in a few other Wildwater boats, but not that one...

I built an extrabat that was over cut for my weight - edges were in the water sitting still... there really in no need for a 13'2" Squirt boat :-)

Re: What is the most difficult CBoat you've ever paddled?

That's what you get for paddling a squirt boat at a weight exceeding the cut;)

Well, except for the Demo Maven. You aren't heavy enough for that one!

I my old ACE III resurfaces try it out... or drop by and try the Oxygen;)

What is the most difficult CBoat you've ever paddled?

I admit... my used Ace III was by far the most difficult for me... even the Oxygen (and Maven) are easier.

That said, some of the problem may have been the flexing hull. I have a Bala (also a WildWater boat) that is far less terrifying.

Re: Ok, what's the fastest whitewater boat you've paddled?

C1 - Bala (WildWater). very very fast boat. Much more stable than my old Ace III (which was also fast, but on average slow as it didn't like to be upright particularly).

I personally think the Fanatic and Fanatic 2 are their best work, with the Extrabat a close 3rd. But they are all great boats.

From your description I'd guess someone on the UK team in the late 80's / early 90's... but I only say that as my old Ace III had similar markings, and was a UK boat....

Ace III wildwater C-1 for sale

Bigger than life and twice as ugly, this boat looks like a bruised eggplant thanks to my "what half empty rattle cans are left on the shelf" paint job. I also glassed into the deck the four Aces and a Joker from a set of Grateful Dead playing cards. As reported by the previous owner (our own Adam Pe...
