Re: C1 & C2 Boating

... is the exception as it actually responds better when you can push your weight into a stern squirt or pirouette. So there's the Blackwater and Magnet, two boats I know little about that might fill the bill for heavier paddlers. Oh, and the Storm Chaser which I know is a good performer, its ...

Re: Hornet and Magnet comparisons

I think the Magnet would hold weight equal to or better than a Gyramax. It is a pretty big boat for glass.

Re: Hornet and Magnet comparisons

Here is a little information: https://www.cboats.net/c_db/list.php?type=1&alpha=M&boat_id=111&name=Magnet I'd forgotten I need to measure the Magnet; I have one out of the "new" mold (Class V composites has a mold now...). Plenty of volume (more than the Hornet). The Hornet ...

Re: Hornet and Magnet comparisons

Does anyone know what kind of paddler weight the Magnet can handle, or possibly its dimensions. I have an eye out for another boat, and I might keep an eye for a Magnet if it can float me. Thanks.

Re: Hornet and Magnet comparisons

Just for the record, Bob P is the designer of the Hornet. I met him once several years ago in the Ingles parking lot in Bryson City. I started talking to him because he had several unusual cboats on his racks. I told him that we had 2 Hornets and thanked him for the design. we had a great discussion...

Re: Hornet and Magnet comparisons

I live in CT and take 81 when I go back and forth to Bryson City. Next time I'm traveling back from B.C., I'll give you a heads-up. I can bring the boat with me.

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." My latest race boat design is similar to the Amoeba (based on the same Estanguet race boat) except with lower stern volume and dimensioned legal for slalom. It's currently stored in Bryson City. I'll be going down there...

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...

Re: Hornet and Magnet comparisons

Great review - thank you for taking the time to share!

Now I'm even more curious to hear what you'd think of an Amoeba;)

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, ...
