    If you've not tried a presage, I'd advise against one.......no secondary stability
    All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

    Was it really that bad?

    Aside from the stability was there anything else you didn't like?

    Bren's was also very yellow! I only tried it on slow moving water, and I wasn't that keen either. Didn't seem either nice and manouevrable or fast.

    To be honest, I think your 3 options are quite different to each other. The Broadland is a little Prospectorish, whereas then Pocket Canyon is a slightly more serious whitewater tripper.

    May be worth stating your intended use, which I believe was G3 if I remember your previous post? Pocket Canyon sounds a good choice for you. I like the Broadland, possibly because it feels similar to me Bell Chestnut Prospector, but it won't be quite as "chuckable" as a PC. A NC Supernova might be worth a look too? Thoughost will be well used now.

    Just wondering did you really mean Esquif Presage or possibly you meant Esquif Prospecteur 15?

    Yes Mal, good point you make. The Esquif Pocket Canyon makes more and more sense (if I can find one).

    I'm in the market for a boat geared up to and including Grade 3, predominantly for solo but can handle the odd tandem task as required.

    I did mean the Presage.

    To be fair they make so many fantastic boats!

    The Legend has sold.

    If you want to sell the PC let me know. The kind of rivers I'm interested in are unlikely to be affected too much by wind.
