I paddle the SF. I'll run it down almost anything up to class five big. The diesel has zero play options, but is known for its ability to creek most stuff. No learning tricks, but it does front surf well. Seasons about done and there will be good deals on boats until mid Feb, both new and used. If you are planning on losing a shitton of weight, today might not be the day you want to drop a G on a boat.
