I had an '08, the bigger incarnation between the foam floor original and the current model. I have paddled an early model and really want to find one for low water. They don't pop up for sale often.

I would appreciate it if any or all of you would invite me on trips. I would like to learn from people who have done this and understand how to do it. Thanx in advance

Scott we have a good group of older paddlers from the Western Slope with 4 being IK's and 4 hardshell kayakers. Some of the best quality class III runs are over here with us having run everything many times. But we will all end up on the Ark before the season is done, so lets connect. I usually try and get a big group together for multiple runs. Contact me at 970-497-6512 anytime, Gunther.

whaddup randy!! thanks for the tips man. positioning on my drings will be interesting. think i've got a good plan in my head...
yeah man, i might be coming to bv in late may. if i make it down there i'll hit ya up. we should paddle browns or something!
lemme know if you make it to the upper c. looking like we might actually have water, hopefully the lower blue runs too!

All I need are some tasty waves, a cool buzz, and I'm fine.

I say if you have canoeing experience just go with that. I've run a paddlac many times from my knees with a single blade paddle and its solid. You get a lot more out of your strokes having the leverage of sitting higher.
