Based on your latest post I'd say your list of "river play" boats is a good list to start with. Start demoing and see what works best for you - fit, comfort, performance. I've used a Jackson SuperFun for the last many years because it fits my size well, it's uber comfy, and has good "all around" performance. Even though a Jackson Monstar (playboat) makes playing MUCH easier, and the Jackson SuperHero (river runner/creeker) makes running class IV easier and less stressful, I spend 90% of my time running class III, so the SuperFun has been the best all around boat for me to date. Looking forward to demoing the FreeRide 67 next weekend and seeing how it compares to the SuperFun.
