Free Boat to a good home!!!!!

Just to bring up a really old thread of mine, I was cleaning around my garage and remembered this boat. I am not using it anymore, and if someone wanted to put a super classic back on the river it's yours.

I think McClaren may have sold his Class VI name/design to a builder in WA (Seattle-are). After he made the Mustang, and Infinity boats took it over.
My ex-b.f.,"Space", bought 2 different designs of a glass Class VI. We went to the shop in northern WA. That in '85-'86. He probably still has then in Pt. Arena, CA.
The guys name was Bobbie...
That's a memory form a long time ago. But I'm quite certain that's were we got his Class VI.
I'll to some research. Ya, GREAT boats.

Happy to say that I found a good home for this boat with a Buzzard that will use it. Sad to see it go especially after learning so much history behind it. I did get to use this boat, and it is pretty incredible. So incredibly light, fast and stable all in one boat. I wonder why modern kayak manufacturers have not tried to emulate such a successful concept.
Thank you everyone for your input!

Just a point of trivia... I was looking through the Old Testament yesterday and there is a picture of two guys putting on at Barrel Springs in Mustangs.

I have an old Class VI, it was my dads, and I raced it at the lyons games a few years ago. I refuse to sell it, with the idea of running some rivers in it one day.
