I cannot readily find more information about the Martikan c-1 slalom boat. 4-meter boat means it is the older 13-foot, 2-inch model. Do you have any performance characteristics you could post about it? It is a pretty sweet boat.

MORE DESCRIPTION:
This boat is the older 4M/13.2FT cut. It has been stored indoors since shipment to the US directly from Vajda, and never been paddled or had a seat installed. It was Vajda's last 4M model before the cut down.

PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS: This Martikan C1 will be significant faster on a straight line and be able to surf faster waves than any of newer 3.5M boats. It will be also more stable. However, pivot turns will take additional effort and quick turns will not be as sharp. That said, this was Vajda's last 4M boat, so it turns about as nicely as any 4M C1 I've seen.

(While I have not paddled this particular boat, I know about the model from past boats of the same model)
