Kaz., how does the Rayge compare to the new Rhumba in terms of handling? The Rhumba is larger, but is there a noticeable difference? Turning 60 so need more of an oldxxx er.. mature boater's craft
Maybe a tweaked Big Boy :)

Kevlar Outrage?'s and Rhumba?'s

I have been reading the older posts about kevlar canoes and keep seeing people talk about a kevlar Outrage was this a one-off thing or does Mad River make them upon request?
Does any one have a review of the Rhumba and Pics?

... Outrage (my fave) is almost as forgiving as the Encore, carves tighter and attains easier. It too benefits from a hard lean. I am lusting after a Rhumba from Kaz. Like you I question the wisdom of my limited skills in glass. But my Millbrook Souhegan poling boat see's plenty of rocks without much ...

I wouldn't say that the Defiant or Rhumba need to be "bow driven," and one thing I learned from setting up my Big Boy is that the seat position really needs to be a little farther back from the physical center point of the boat than one might ...

And don't forget the Millbrook Rhumba - a shorter version of the Defiant. Good combination of forward speed and turning. Probably a bit faster than the Spark in a straight line. If you want to save the big bucks, my prototype Cobra (35lbs) ...

rhumba

I paddled an Ocoee for years. I own a Rhumba and have paddled a Zephyr multiple times...The Zephyr material is pretty interesting but the hull cannot compare to a Rhumba. The Rhumba does everything well, it is dryer than the Zephyr, faster than ...

Boat selection

... a returning (hopefully) OC-1er. I have a question about two boats and their usage, capabilities, limitations, etc... The Zephyr and a Millbrook Rhumba. While I know these are two relatively different designs I'm wondering what is more appropriate for the types of rivers I paddle. I primarily ...

... boat! Mostly have more fun.... Let me say it again, please don't get an X. And in my usual broken record form, look at the Millbrook Defiant or Rhumba. I have a Defiant and my next boat will be a Rhumba or Spark..... or a Zoom X. Now, yes I know that Esquif does not make a Zoom X but if they ...

kevlar rival--any feedback?

... they really are a full 2 inches different in width? I hear some complaints about cross strokes in Rival due to width, but it's listed the same as Rhumba, which actuall feels pretty narrow to me--Go figure. Due to shoulder injuries and just tiring the heavy feel of the royalex outrage, I am thinking ...
