Re: Spring 2019 Armada

Right now here is the plan - if you want to join in please do! Saturday, April 27th meet up at the North Branch of the Potomac take out (or perhaps the brick building nearby we have in the past?) at 10 am to figure out shuttle and such. In theory I'll be paddling the Storm Giant. Saturday night - ri...

River Elf Storm Giant

A few years ago after getting my Storm Chaser I commented to Chris that they should lengthen it and make a recreational C2 as it had great potential to be an awesome boat, and there really aren't many recreational C2's out there (Hydra Duet and Canoah Americana are the only two that come to mind in ...

Re: Spring 2019 Armada

2019 schedule has been posted... looks like a release the 27th and 28th of April (weekend after Easter). At this point I'm planning on making it down, and am trying to figure out where to camp (Robert Craig @ Jennings Randolph lake opens the following weekend of course...). Mountain Meadows at Deep ...

Re: Spring 2019 Armada

I figured you would be;)

Right now I'm hoping there will be a release the weekend of the April 20/21, as that is our only free weekend from the 13/14th of April through mid July. Thankfully the first weekend in May is the WW Derby so I'll be getting some paddling in;)

Spring 2019 Armada

It's been quite a few years since we did a spring get together, and I'm already thinking of heading south in late April for some paddling (for better or worse the 3rd weekend in May commitment that has kept me north for 7 years now is likely to continue for 3 more years). We don't know the schedule ...

Re: Mosquito Burrito - A canoe for kids!

I hope it happens - it would be awesome to have a 30 lb kids canoe (though for some kids that weighs 1/2 what they do;) ). Hopefully the price point works better than the Composite Creations Splash (which is an awesome boat IMhO). Other's have done composite designs before too... Massive? Millbrook ...

Re: Boat Width/Stability vs Height

Yes, and there is more of a difference in an open boat, particularly a high-sided open boat. Stability will be based on seat height and boat design (same boat or very similar hull design with a lower seat will be more stable). If you are short of torso and arm you should focus more on the width at t...

Re: "Where We Canoe" Episode 1

Looks like a lot of fun! The Hudson and Sac are a lot of fun, but the Winni looks more interesting and lots of choices of different routes to mix it up. Kudos to you for taking the time and effort to make a video and share it!

Re: Boat Width/Stability vs Height

Depending on your budget you might want to check out the "Echoee" as well. I'd recommend a smaller, or lighter (or both) boat in general given your weight, but it will depend on what type of water you like to paddle as well.

Re: C-boat for 120 lb 11 year old to learn - which to pick

Cut down Fanatic sounds like the best choice.

A nice waterline without too much rocker (to help going straight and not be too frustrated), light weight, and fairly easy to roll.

Storm Chaser would be my second choice; perhaps put him in both and see which he appears more confident in?

Re: looking for a new boat

Where are you located? I have both here in Queensbury, NY and you (or anyone else) are welcome to swing by and try them out (I'm right on the Hudson, albeit a flatwater stretch). Hornet is a "sporter" Cascade, and yes, a bit less stable. Wide Ride might be better. River Elf Storm Chaser might be ano...

Re: WTB: OC-2 for Class II-III whitewater, mild tripping

My parents have an AC/DC from the mid 80's (purchased from John Berry when he was in Riparius, as we are nearby). It has been raced in the Hudson River WW Derby quite a few times, and over the years has taken some pretty good hits. Though I wouldn't intentionally go crashing in to rocks I don't worr...

Re: Old Town Cascade - In search of

I don't have a Star Burst for sale, but be aware there are a few different "clones" on the market these days that are essentially mildly tweaked Star burst hulls. My personal favorite is the Echo Starlight, but then I like a composite boat (in this case out of some fairly durable materials).
