WTB - Splash skirt for Wildwater C-1

I've got a Wildwater C-1, it may or may not be an Ace II, and I'm looking for a skirt for it. From what I gather Wildwater canoe cockpits are pretty much a standard size (quite a bit smaller and more round than slalom cockpits). Any leads would be appreciated. Located in Maine. Thanks. Jeff

Re: plastic welding tutorial?

I just bought an Ace Hardware digital heat gun for $35.99 and for the price it's awesome, 100-1100 degree range, two fan speeds.

Re: Would you ever...

Almost all of the boats I have I didn't paddle before I purchased them. This includes a number of brand new boats ... I would) but paddled because I had the opportunity before putting down the cash: Ace III New Wave Edge If I look at all the boats I've owned I guess I've paddled or had ...

Re: Ok, what's the fastest whitewater boat you've paddled?

C1: This can be split into catagories - Overall: It's got to be a WildWater boat; I've only used an Ace II, though I'd like to try a No-Name and Bala Playboat: The Crazy 88 is hands down the fastest ...

Re: Ok, what's the fastest whitewater boat you've paddled?

C1 - Bala (WildWater). very very fast boat. Much more stable than my old Ace III (which was also fast, but on average slow as it didn't like to be upright particularly).

Re: Older fast boats! Pics!!!

C2 I used to paddle one with the seats 90cm apart. Most People used 95cm and i did see with spacing ... corectly John Butler used one at the Bala worlds. By the way Davey didn't you use an Ace II at Bourg in 86 or was it 87? Are these good boats? Do they stand up today? Well I think ...

Re: Older fast boats! Pics!!!

... here. The C2 is a Prijon Queen Mary design, same as Ron Lugbill and I paddled in 1977 World Championships in Spittal, Austria to win the C2 Team ... like I made one of around 1977-1978 or so, but it could also be an Ace or Ace II. These are both fast boats! BTW, the cockpit on the yellow ...

Re: Older fast boats! Pics!!!

I *think* that C1 is an Ace (or possibly Ace II, certainly it has some simillarity to my Ace II) in which case you've got an excellent boat. ...

Ok, that was much easier than I anticipated... Had a blast in out clubs 1970's vintage WWR c1, and so long as I concentrate ... felt a little sketchy at first, but it's easily picked up... I'm expecting the Ace II to be somewhat tippier; hopefully still a doddle to roll though. Mainly though... ...

Wildwater Racing Technique

I've Picked up an old WWR boat for a pitance, with the aim of trying to place well at the British ... for a relative newcomer to Wildwater boats, I'd be appreciative. The boat I've got is an Ace 2 which is apparently on the stable side of tippy.
