Re: East Coast Armada

Well its been a month since the last post. I will be down in McHenry to start on Friday visiting fellow C1er Walt. Hoping the forecasted rain brings the regions rivers back up to Aprils bounty. Is there any schedule for the squirt worlds, time of day for events etc..? I didn't see anything on Angst ...

Re: Boat of the Week - Dagger Atom

I would say that 170 to 200 lbs is the sweet spot for this boat. I think if you are tall you have more leverage to make those stern pivots at a lighter weight. I have to say that when I started paddling the Atom I was in the upper 160's in weight but I'm 6'4 in height and did swim alot. When I start...

Re: East Coast Armada

I think I could make arrangements to be there.
There's a new place in Accident MD that would be great to have an informal gathering. I'll have to google for it but Moon is part of the name. It is about 20 minutes from the Upper Yough put in.

Re: Full cut Acrobat?

Wildwater2 I would agree with Adam, the Viper is a great cruiser and if you want something less demanding a modern slalom boat by Vajda or Galasport can be a great all around river runner. Low volume boats require you to work the run and don't know that the marginal increase in volume of a full cut ...

I'm 6'4" and the Ceemweaver is the only mystery boat that I could get in.

Re: Curved blade versus flat blade

I feel and hear a high frequency flutter or rip under water when transitioning quickly from my offside back to onside. Has anyone else noticed this? Yes, when new this is common, but it went away and I have not experienced it in recent memory. My Mitchell is 13 years old, so maybe like a plaster tr...

Re: Suggestions for Slalom C1 and C2

John, I paddle a Vajda Magma 420 C2 and I found it to be fast and does not seem to have been any harder to paddle than the old Arguemax I started out in. I and my usual partners weigh in at around 330 lbs and I've had 360 lbs in it once and did not feel a real drop in performance. The weight ranges ...

Re: New Wave Grokshark C-2 for sale

Beautiful boat. Centered Cockpits? There's nothing like a C2 for surfing. I have two so I'm not in the market.

Re: wallace wallacing

Sorry to see your misfortune Harry. I saw a lot of boaters flip in that rapid (Buzzel, it is the name of an intersecting road but somewhat appropriate). One broken paddle in the mix. A friend dislocated his shoulder and broke some fingers there two years ago. Those that were successful hit the seam ...

Re: Kelly-Rand's Storm Chaser

Chris, Yesterday I had a great day paddling a local favorite, the Contoocook in NH. With the heel blocks and the sense that I had a good chance at rolling up in the surf, I paddled more aggressively went for those harder to grab eddies. So yes I think I've finally achieved a comfort level in the boa...

Re: Kelly-Rand's Storm Chaser

Nice setup Gwyn. A friend did a similar bulkhead in an Atom. I think today I have found the setup that works for me. The heel blocks made the difference in keeping me in place.

Re: Kelly-Rand's Storm Chaser

Since I revised the strap anchor point I still could not stay put beyond the first roll attempt. I've only had the boat on challenging water twice since I made the strap modifications. In August I did the LY loop and rolled in the last rapid above Railroad and it was successful but I was almost out ...

Re: Changing Sides

So my rule of thumb is if the other paddler is of equal or better skill than I then they get to paddle on their side of choice, otherwise I paddle on my on side and for offside moves we are limited by the skill of the other paddler. I usually paddle stern in our close cockpit C2. You should pick the...
