Sup with your review of the Stretch? Or is it the Burn?
All you haters out there who love to diss the downriver playboat, get ready to repent. The Stretch ($999) is going to change your mind. Remember the Pyranha Razor, a pre-planing hull model that worked well on everything? The Burn is a post-millennium version of that classic, with a fatter tail to ward off unwanted stern squirts. You can also spin this boat like a bad record to make beautiful music, unlike the Razor. And yeah, its fast. While the pure playboaters had to sprint to stay aboard Lake Creeks speedy Redhill Wave, the Burn coasted at mach speed.
Advanced boaters who want a boat to run creeks and rivers and still play the odd wave will swoon to the Stretch. Intermediates and beginners who yearn for a single boat? You-Stretch-ya. Washingtons Wind River at 4,000? Perfect. Colorados Gore Canyon at summer flows? Great. The Green at 200 percent? Dont kid yourselfget a creek boat. But if youre looking for one of the best all-around boats on the market, its no Stretch. Youve found your mate. Specs: M/L, 610, 31 lbs., 58 gal.; L/XL, 7, 32 lbs., 64 gal. Info: (82
