I agree about the race boats. I bought Isaac's old Loco last winter, and I am having a blast in it. I am not much of a racer, I have onlyentered one race at the Gull this year and got soundly beaten by 13 year olds... :roll: ... but I love it for ...

... have been offended by this report at all. Just my 02 cents. martin a.k.a. the great gonzo! PS: KNeal, glad that you made it back! I'll bring that Loco for you to try next time! Overall, the entire Canadian contingent that I paddled with, including all the first timers, had a great time on the ...

... by Davey Hearn at the same time, seem to be more forgiving for larger paddlers than many other designs. However, if could afford it, I would buy a Loco. I was only able to paddle one very briefly but liked the way that it handled and it is certainly the only short boat that comes close to being ...

All I know is what is posted on their web site, which is that the design weight range for the iMo is from 70-85 kilos (i.e. 154-187 lbs.). The Loco is listed as having a weight range from 80-90 kilos (i.e. 176-198 lbs.). It's my understanding that Robin Bell, the designer of both boats, weighs ...

... with iTOMCO to be sure, but, if so, you might also consider one of Robin Bell's designs for larger C-1 paddlers: The "iMo" or possibly a used "Loco" (his previous design). Both are "short" boats (under 4 meters) built by Galasport. John

Have you ordered a new Galasport boat recently?

... costs, and hassles. I have not yet talked with GalasportUSA, they are out of the country for the Olympics, but will contact them in September. The Loco sounds like the ideal boat for me, that's why the interest in Galasport. So, if you wouldn't mind disclosing some info it would be greatly appreciated. ...

Thanks for the info. I'm 6' and 170 so it sounds like the Loco is a pretty good choice, but I will also investigate the other boats mentioned. I like the idea of the Itomco boat made in Canada because of the possiblity of reduced shipping costs and it ...

I have been paddling a Loco for quite awhile now. Very nice and comfortable. Very stable and easy paddle. I have not seen an iMo yet which is the updated version of the Loco. I have let numerous beginners, novices and experts paddle ...

The Loco would be a good boat for your weight, what is your height? It was designed by Robin Bell and I believe it is the boat that he just got the bronze in at the games. He is a tall guy (maybe 6'2") and I bet weighs in around ...

Thanks for the reply.

I'm usually around 170lbs. From the Galasport website it looks like I would be OK at my weight in the Loco. Might be a good time to drop a few pounds anyway.
