In chronological order:

  2. Crazy 88 - Sold to the son of my former teacher,

  5. Microbat 250 - Has been returned,
  6. Nomad 8.5 - Sold to pay for Prelude,
  7. Crazy 88 C1 - Re Outfitted... yet again, now has hip pads, No more painful bruises for me!
  8. Jefe C1 - Broke horribly in scotland, has been stripped bare to (combined with the Gus's seat) outfit a new shell for a friend who was skint and needed a boat; Recently got new central pillars, c1 outfitting is in a pile in the garage; awaiting being cut into quarters and re-assembled into something completely different.
  9. Nomad 8.5 - Final disposition unknown; rear portion turned up in club sheds, used as dustbin.
  10. Jefe Grande - Now has a nose cone, and is back in action with the lad who took it off my hands.
  11. Prelude - Now bright yellow, was to be fluro yellow, but one of the many complex coats required to make it look good had gone off and it hasn't ended up looking as slick as it ought to
  12. Meltdown - Had some holes put in it (who knew doing a massive rock boof would gouge it? Clearly not me as I got carried away with myself), and fixed again; Recently returned by TGG after the Worlds.
  13. Gus C1 - Moved the bulkhead back, improved the saddle, welded the bolt holes shut, changed the strap system.
  14. 91' Nomad Extrabat C1 - Recovered from a pile of boats that were going to be thrown way, Used to belong to Steve Batham who told me it's age and manufacturer. Recently replaced the cockpit rim, patched some holes, reworked outfitting and decorated it
How many is too many now?

I'll limit myself to whitewater OC-1s, C-1s, or OC-2s that I have owned or currently own since that is the focus of this forum:

Whitesell Piranha
Perception HD-1
Blue Hole Sunburst
Blue Hole Sunburst II (2 different ones)
Mad River Outrage
Dagger Cascade
Dagger Atom
Dagger Impulse
Dagger Encore
Dagger Prophet
Dagger Ocoee
Dagger Phantom
Dagger Caper
Dagger Caption
Dagger Legend 16
Mohawk Viper (original Viper 12 before there was a Viper 11)
Mohawk Viper 11
Clipper Viper 12

Also have and old 'glass C-2 sitting in the backyard which I seem to have inherited since I have been judged to be the only local person who might be stupid enough to want to try to repair and paddle it. I think it is a Paramax, but I'm not sure.

I've lost count, embarrassing as that is. I tried to do it chronologically, but that didn't work. Usually I can do it alphabetically at least:

Ace III Wildwater (sold)
Acrobat (Master)
Acrobat (Standard)
Bala (by Roocke Schmidt)
Cascade (#1, sold to buy Atom)
Cascade (#2, when I started "collecting")
Cascade (#3, or rather, #1 which I bought back)
Fanatic II
Gemini V C2 (gave to someone who would use it)
Groove prototype (plastic)
Gyra Max
Maverick (very shortly... was cut up in to tiny bits as part of the original Maven project)
Magnet #1 (now the plug for the new Magnet mold)
Magnet #2... TBD soon!
Modified Czech
Slasher (#1, sold to by the Atom)
Slasher #2 (sold after #3... didn't want 2 slashers!)
Slasher #3 (Slasher #1 re-purchased)
Wide Ride

Of course, there is also the:
Tomcat (IK)
NRS Bandit (Adk Sara's boat :) )
Sawyer Champ II
Wenonah Advantage
16' wood strip marathon solo boat
7' Hornbeck (Mckenna's boat:) )
Keep the C!

Open Canoes (Cruising):
Old Town Tripper
Old Town Pathfinder (2)

Open Canoes (Slalom):
Spark (dual purpose)*

C1 Cruising:
Max II
Perception C1 (factory kayak conversion circa 1982 - awful)
Perception Dancer (my conversion - better)
Microbat, also known a The Death Machine (Ultramax with 5" taken out of the seam line)

C1 Slalom: (During my A/B slalom years, my race boat was also my cruising boat. We didn't abuse boats nearly as much as people do now.)
Extrabat (my favorite...)
Fanatic II (not my favorite)
Stinger (fastest boat ever)*

*Still have these 4, plus my original Cobra prototype. Pathetic...

Made a kayak from a free mold (hated it...)

20-odd boats in 35 years, but I never had "a collection".
