Hmmm, 3 votes for the Rocker. Must be the semi-sponsored bro-deal Jackson kayak 303 poser posse, aka marty, darren, and matt. :P Just kidding guys, I don't have to tell you that you suck, you know it well.

My vote is for the Gus, sucky paddlers don't like it, that's okay cuz they suck.

You should put a Phat on that poll too, there is a pretty dedicated group out there for that boat.

Apparently, you can run it in a Topo Duo also, as was done last year by two NOC boys who got bored with ESPN and Xbox. But I would still say a K-2 is not a creek boat, period - you can boof even a Crossfire, but not a Topo Duo.

Good poll idea!
Join up, suckas.

Brian that is very funny you CREEKING GOD!!! Considering the constant piton that seems to happen EVERY time you take that Gus out, I am very surprised to hear you not bashing the Gus hard. If your broken ankle could only talk.... POS!!!

Yes, I voted for the Rocker, but I honestly believe it's the best creek boat ever. I was crazy for the Salto for years and still say it's the best next to the Rocker. From what I hear the Jefe is very good, but takes a bit of time to master the front end.

Matt is out of town... hasn't voted yet I am sure, not sure about Darren, but he has yet to paddle it.

gus does well by me!!!
I wish it was a little shorter for my style (my size however wont allow it)but i got used to it (took a little while to get used to alot on this boat but once i did i was thankful for the tricky aspects cause they've made me a better boater).
I haven't owned another creeker so i only have boats I've tried as a comparison.
Diesel is a creekboat as far as I'm concerned as is the Wavesport Stubby!!
I've seen sicker stuff run in those two boats then i care to at this point which in my opinion makes them damn fine creek boats.

Yeah, with all the T-shirts, visors, sweatshirts, etc., you'd think I'd vote Rocker, but wrong again Brian. I declined to vote because the Gradient wasn't an option. I don't think the Rocker's a bad alternative though... I just haven't had the time to work Craw on the price. Come to think of it, I haven't seen Craw swim out of a Rocker yet. That says alot!

What kind of survey is this? If someone's "creeker" is a Diesel or something that the manufacturers don't specifically say is a "creeker" we could be missing out on some valuable info. Like maybe there are some really good creekers out there that aren't "creekers" but people are creekin in them and doin a damn fine job of it, not just bombin down by the skin of their teeth even though they might have the latest "creeker."

By that logic, the dancer has to go on the list, as more first D's of things that are still seldom run (Le Taureau, Horsepasture, etc) were done in the great pencil-boat of the 80's.

I say whatever you creek in, that's a creek boat.

Seems as though I can no longer add boats to the list, otherwise I'd give it up for the Stubby, Phat, and Skream.

My no-so-educated belief is that the Diesel, Hoss line of boats, Mamba, etc are generally made of thinner plastic, have hard chines and flatter hulls - therefore putting them in the category of river runner. Not to say that the diesel can't go big - Robert made an excellent boat. It would be my prefered one for the Fu, but definitely not for SSV. For me the plastic and pinning strength are all the difference in the world.

On a very exciting note, the new Eskimo Saltos have hit the states! I'll drop a post as soon as I get my hands on one.
