Re: ISO Robson Finkenmeister

Oh, Reno is a bit too far. And as luck would have it, I picked up a red Fink over in Massachusetts a few months ago. Thanks for the response, though.

Re: Soul Waterman's Fanatix

... not get enough orders, production may be cut short. Keep that in mind. The Fanatix seems to be a winner, but the last 2 plastic C1's (the Robson Finkenmeister and Drakkar Wheelboy) were not financially successful. The C1 community is small and difficult to please.

Re: River Elf C-1 Spray Skirts

Thanks for the info on the Finkenmeister. I think we will have something that will work. Regarding tube placement, we have established some "standard" tube locations for each deck but we definitely can move the tunnels forward or back ...

Re: Esquif Prelude (cheap!) ROBSON HOMES (Rare!) Millbrook Kyote

Adam!

Yeah, I know it's old, and I figured they were gone. I like poking around, was trying to find a Finkenmeister, and this came up when I searched for Robson.

I like talking with people about boats. I miss being on the river.

Re: ISO Robson Finkenmeister

It's got a patch under the seat. Not sure why since Finks are linear PE and weld well.

Looking for a Finkenmeister.

Re: C1 conversion bulkhead questions

Mike W has a point, the high back rest is definitely needed, but it was in my experience not enough. The back rest in the Finkenmeister is a good 7 to 8 inches above the saddle and I still fell out of the boat before adding thigh straps. A strapless system may work in mainly low volume ...
