Re: River Elf Road Trip

Sounds good Paul. We will update this thread as we get closer. Saturday is fixed at the N. Branch but Sunday/Monday are flexible. Once you have an idea of your plans, let us know and we'll try to work out a time that is mutually convenient. Thanks for the tip Brian - let's see if I did this right...

Re: River Elf Storm Chaser M/L - blem - $1869

The installed seat in this boat is currently at 6" (we generally recommend 5-6 inches). I believe we've had one customer who outfitted around 7" with success. For reference, the depth at the back of the cockpit of the M/L is 10". The key is, the higher up you go the more you'll want to really lock y...

River Elf Road Trip

Hi C-Boaters, It's time for us to finally get out of the shop and back on the River!!! We can't make it to the armada next weekend, but we are planning a trip up to Western MD/DC during the Memorial Day Weekend and we'll be bringing two Medium Storm Chaser C-1's and our new Storm Rider K-1 along wit...

Re: Marking the centre line in a boat?

Take measurements inside the boat from the deck/hull parting line (or seam) across to the side of the pillar. Do this on both the left and right sides. If your pillar is in the center and the boat is symmetric, the measurement should be the same on both sides. If they are not, adjust your pillar (le...

River Elf Storm Chaser M/L - blem - reduced to $1649 - SOLD

Hey Ya'll :D We have a M/L Storm Chaser that we've recently posted on our website for sale. It's fully outfitted including hipblocks - so its ready to hit the water without any extra work. The boat has been discounted due to the deck being a cosmetic blem that required an external epoxy paint job ov...

Re: River Elf Storm Chaser

Hey John - no worries whatsoever, I didn't take your original post as negative in any way at all. I sincerely appreciate you sharing your experiences when designing the Torrent C-2's and the complexities of C-2 design in general. My brother (and business partner) Trevor and I raced slalom C-2 from 9...

Re: River Elf Storm Chaser

Thanks for all of the input, advice and discussion guys. Our intention would be to develop a boat that would have some flexibility in cockpit arrangement (for and aft) to accommodate a wide range of combined paddler weights and allocation. Of course no single boat can fit all scenarios, but as a sur...

Re: River Elf Storm Chaser

Thanks for the input Mary. We're on the same page with you guys - definitely designed more as a river runner and we're thinking along the same lines with the narrower bow similar to the Small and Medium SC and the smaller cockpits. I'm not sure we'd want to go too much shorter than 12' though - just...

Re: River Elf Storm Chaser

Thanks Adam. Our thoughts are something designed off the Storm Chaser - so definitely a rec design - think "storm-chaser-built-for-two". It would have the same round chines, higher volume, etc and probably around 12'-13' long - yet, also borrow from modern slalom C-2 design with a slight continuous ...

Re: River Elf Storm Chaser

Thanks for taking the time to post that very kind review Mary! You are indeed the first woman to order a Storm Chaser and we really appreciate your perspective on the boat. We're hoping more lady cboaters will now have a chance to try one of our new smaller version boats. Thanks again to all of you ...
