Are there differences in the '06-'08 Burns

My buddy back east is telling me that I need to get the Burn. I am 5'10" and about 170 lbs. I run mostly IV/V stuff and find myself on the mank more often than i would like. I am really looking for the best USED all around boat for the money. I want a boat that performs in CO and in Idaho. My Blunt cracked on Bear last year...

Anyway, I am considering the Burn and am wondering if there are differences in the '06, '07, or '08 models or are they all the same?

Nothing has changed between the Burns in terms of hull design. The only difference is in the outfitting. The '06 models have Synchro 6 outfitting and anything from '07 or later has the Connect 30 outfitting. Overall I think the Connect 30 is a better system, but the differences between the two aren't that great: different backband, different hip adjustable hip pads, different seat pad.

The Burn is a big hit up on the North Fork Payette. That hull design works well for Idaho-style whitewater.

the burn turned me from a timid, class II, fair weather, no roll kayaker into a balls-to-the-wall sick class VII creekin machine!!!

well no not much of that is true - but its a good CO boat - I like it on the upper animas.

burn is better for big water due to it's edges. Do what I did Johnny-boy and get an old used H3 [even better for idaho, gore, upper a, etc., IMO] AND a used mank boat w/ a more displacement-type hull and rounded edges [huck,M3, phat, CFS] for the front range runs like turkey creek you love so much.

I would love to buy 2 boats but my garage is already full of unwanted old used boats. Plus, the cost. I will consider the H3 and the M3 if i can find a good deal but i think i might really like the Burn....i just need to demo these boats. The problem is, i need a boat to take to New Mexico soon.
