I'm not sure I can remember... :-?

All whitewater

Old Town Tripper (2 years of OC2-ing)

Old Town Pathfinder (4 years of solo OC1. The last year was done with a lot of standing up and hole playing)

Then 4 years of almost exclusive C1 in
Max II (I forget the manufacturer, but the boat had 10 pounds of repair after the first year)
(Plastic C1 - Forgot the name, but it was a Perception kayak with factory C1 outfitting, circa 1976 - terrible boat)
Perception Dancer converted to C1 - much better

Then discovered slalom! 1984
Sweet Ultramax
Gyramax
Sweet Batmax
Aerobat
Sweet Superbat
Sweet Extrabat (still one of my all-time favorite boats)

Got bored. Added OC1 slalom (1988-ish)
Rattler
Andy Bridge Fanatic II

After '92, when slalom became an Olympic sport, A/B courses got too hard for an old man... Still did C1 in C/D races.
Millbrook Hornet
Millbrook Reaktor
Millbrook Stinger
Millbrook Cobra
Esquif Spark

Still is, for this livin' in the past tightwad :lol:
More I hop into other boats the more I realize what a pig the Encore is, but when I need something that will take care of me, that's my "go to" boat. Aarons is still in great shape (he knows how to avoid rocks :roll: ), while mine needs a little work. Mix up some abs slurry, get out the knife and hopefully one more season :D
so glad for Krylon, ABS and acetone.Squirt, sail, paddle and pole.

That's right. I should have added the 18" low volume inner tube. Great for long portages. There's nothing lighter and if you're tired of carrying it you can just roll it along. Because the center of gravity is below the surface of the water it's the most stable boat for running rapids like Granite, Hermit, Lava, etc. I've never gotten flipped in it. It's also great for surfing holes.
