    Anyone, before the dreaded evil bay?
    It really is a cracking all rounder

    Far be it for me to interfere, but someone here should buy this boat.
    I suspect that it's drawn no interest because the name isn't well known over here. You shouldn't let that put you off, it will make an excellent all rounder and it's in great condition - I've seen it .
    I guess I'm being somewhat snobby here, but I'd rather see it go to someone here that will appreciate its virtues (hopefully) rather than a random buyer on e bay that might not.

    Amazed no one has bought this..................fantastic river tripping boat very capable of handling grade 3, very good primary and secondary stability, better than anything Hou or Venture are offering in the same niche. If I didn't have a Pocket Canyon and Penobscot to fill these rolls I'd have had it
    All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

    Thanks guys, your spot on as usual
    Post 5 in the canoe manufacturers section by a very experienced Rolf Kraiker confirms what you've both said.

    What Lenart said ..l. This is an excellent boat at a fair price. Somebody who is looking should have snapped it up.

    Getting photos on here used to be easy, using photobucket. I have no idea now how to insert here, as I haven't used any other program. They are available via email though, as I've sent them to one member already. I am lothed to place it on ebay as I don't like it what so ever.
