Re: tandem rolling

My husband and I have been consistently river rolling our C2 since 1985. When we were learning we experimented with the various options listed here. I paddle stern and my husband paddles bow. We are both righties but I paddle left. We both roll right in our C1s. So we always roll on the right. In th...

Re: River Elf Storm Chaser

John, I very much agree with your assessment that there is no such thing as a "stock" C-2. My husband weighs about 190 lbs and I weigh 115 lbs. We are a bit unusual in that John paddles bow and I paddle stern. We built 2 Gemini C-2s (Steve Chamberlain design - mold from PCC) in the 1980s, followed b...

Re: River Elf Storm Chaser

We own 3 slalom C-2s. Our Savage Grok Shark (designed by Lecky and Jamie), which is a late 1980s vintage C-2, we find is a very good and stable river running C-2. We had John Kaz (MillBrook boats) build us a Grok Shark at 13 ft. He just filled in some of the mold (both bow and stern) to make it 13 f...

Re: River Elf Storm Chaser

In regards to the C2 design John and I would like to see the bow shape more like the "S" version than the "L" version Storm Chaser. Something that's a bit faster and doesn't plow the water as much. Our thinking is that it would be a bit more of a river runner and a bit less of a "creek" boat. Anyway...

Re: River Elf Storm Chaser

I think I'm the first woman to buy a Storm Chaser. I have the "S" version which is narrower than the "L" and "XL" versions. My husband has the "L" version and I have paddled both boats. My "S" version is 23.5 lbs (not outfitted) and probably 26 lbs outfitted. I absolutely love my small Storm Chaser....
