Re: Option vs. maxim

If you want to go old school design with new school materials, check out the "Echoee" as well (based on the Ocoee of course...). I've paddled the Option and original L'Edge and liked them both, but really like the lighter weight of the Echoee and responsiveness. I'm roughly your size (a few inches s...

Re: surfc1

When I traveled to the coast on business I used to always bring a boat to surf - it was a blast. the Viper (Frachella designed) was a lot of fun, and easy (comparatively) to get out past the breakers with. The boat that was the most fun was the Massive Groove. That was (is!) an awesome boat for surf...

Re: NEW! Weekly forum topic - Boat of the Week

Searching "boat of the week" will turn up many, many threads on different boats. When responses dwindled we stopped the weekly posts.

Maybe this winter we'll start it up again:)

Re: Frankie

Insolence brings up a great point here, but after participating in this forum or it's predecessor for 20 years now (yikes!), I have an observation: At times there is more emphasis on the "latest and greatest" being a more stable platform to paddle from, and allow folks to push their limits (more dif...

Re: why would you not use a pump?

I can understand the appeal of pumps... but I'd rathe just paddle a C1 and keep the water out in the first place;)

Otherwise part of the challenge to me is a dry (as possible) run.

I'm surprise Kaz even uses a sponge... I'd think it would outweigh the amount of water he gets in his boat :o

Re: Viper (Frachella) C1 vs. River Elf

Likewise I have one of each - both great boats for what they are, but both very different. A full volume Viper is a great cruiser; cut it down and it stern squirts (or stern pivots) very well, and very controllably. The Viper is arguably a better front surfer, the Storm Chaser a better side surfer. ...

Re: "best" tripping boats?

Thank you for all the replies - I greatly appreciate it. We're just back from the Bow trip (Moose River) out of Jackman, ME. Pretty much all flatwater (and boney rips... low water right now:( ). The 5 of us (4 plus the dog:) ) had a great time though. Given how much our daughter enjoyed the quick wa...

Re: "best" tripping boats?

Thank you all for the ideas- more (fun) research to do:) I'm leaning towards getting a more WW "friendly" boat; I have a wonderful 18' tandem tripping canoe already. If it was a little tougher layup, or my paddling partner was a little bigger (she'll be 9 next year:) ) I'd just use what we have and ...

"best" tripping boats?

I'm curious what everyone believes are the "best" multi-day tripping OC2's. Mixed whitewater and flatwater, so it is a tough ask for a boat (maneuverable but not too much of a pig on flat water). I've read that the Blue Hole Cumberland / Evergreen Starburst is one of the best in a few places, but I ...
