Any leads on a H:3 245?

I broke my H:3 245 just as I was hoping to step it up a tad and run bailey/gore. I don't really feel like changing horses in mid race here and trying to run this stuff in a different boat. Anyone have any leads on a used reasonably priced H:3 245 that someone may be willing to sell?

MR

Ok, Maybe I'm being a tool but I don't see a "Swap" page. I do see a "Classified Ads" page and I have searched for Pyranha, H:3, H3 and Aron and havn't found anything. Could you help me out and post a link?

You should just get a medium Burn. It behaves a lot like the 245 only is a lot more forgiving. Your switch would be seamless, and it's a better boat.

I did a comparison of the two boats. Go to my site at rivergypsies dot com ( www.rivergypsies.com ) and scroll down to the Burn review at the very bottom of the page to get the comparison.

A burn is on my list to try out for sure, if I could find one cheap and close it would probably be a done deal.

My medium Burn is my favorite boat ever (I'm 5'11" 175 lbs). I use it for stuff like Black Rock, Bailey, etc. I like it because it is very predictable but it is still easy to make it go where you want it to go. I like to put it on edge and ride it. It boofs easy too.

Boats that spin you backwards every time you make a mistake are for the birds. My Burn doesn't punish me like that.

One thing I had to adjust for was having the stern get grabbed a little bit too much for my taste. I moved the seat forward one notch from the center position and that seems to have solved it.

I can't really imagine improving on the Burn as a boat for paddling stuff that scares me. I'm buying another one after I wear this one out.
