Back in the swim! With kids

Hello folks, here is the obligatory "I am new here" statement. I use to paddle back in the day (late 80's). I now have two kids 13 and 14 and remember what a great time I had and would like to introduce my kids to it. problem is things have changed. My last boat was over eleven feet... a shortie at the time. I am looking for a creeker. Could someone please direct me to the old postings on boat sugestions. I know that they have to be out there I have just not been ablt to find them. Thanks in advance for the help. Mtnman

If you title a thread
Creek boat suggestions
Then post it
Then look down below it will bring up previous threads with similar title
Worth as shot
Nut shell
Everyone is gonna say buy this or that and then a few will tell you to DEMO Demo DEmo
It's all quackery
Buy the one that fits well and you can get a good deal on and paddle a lot!
The one exception to this rule is the CREEKER 225...Sorry Prijon people

Welcome to the area. Fort Collins is a great place to be a boater. I have a boat you can borrow if interested to get you started. I live in the area and paddle at least 3 days a week.

PM me or send me an email at denalijb at gmail.com
