Buy a playboat first if you can only get one boat right now.....Why??? Cause you can throw down, run rivers and many creeks in a play boat, while all a creekboat is good for is creeking. Think about this....early season runs will be escalante (hopefully) the upper Taos box, the Embudo, etc.... YOU (being the badass that you are - an no, im not talking shizzle) could run those in a playboat if you wanted to...itd be fun! Also, when you look at current and near future boating options, we're looking mostly at park/n/play ww parks in towns like gunny, salida, durango, steamboat etc..... Yeah, those spots are definitely not Lachines or Skook as above posters have pointed out but its still good early season wet fun. Id just go playboat for the versatility.
And AAron's right. You need to heal. No big drops for you for at least another month, young man!
