I really like the hull design for the Riot Sniper. I can't really comment on the plastic as my boat is still together but I don't creek nearly as much as I'd need to to comment on the durability factor. However, I can comment on the outfitting. Riot definitely failed in the thigh brace system. The idea was ok but it just doesn't work. I've heard of others breaking the thigh strap and I don't like the notion of paddling creeks without proper outfitting integrity. I think if the the hull benefits outweigh the outfitting issue then you could probably retro fit the Sniper with better thigh outfitting and it would be an excellent creeker.
Looks like you've been missing a lot of work lately.
I wouldn't say I've been *missing* it, Bob.
