Let's not forget some other stern squirt classics:
Prijon Hurricane w/ hot pink and yellow graphics. When coupled with a Prijon paddle with the hot pink and chartreuse blades, it was a hot set up. I had a blue one when they first came out and, man, I thought I was the shit.
Pyranha Acrobat 300 - God, I loved that boat. The damn thing almost broke your back from lack of back support but man, you could squirt that thing for 100 yds. Yes, kids, you actually used to have to outfit your own kayaks with blocks of foam, contact cement and dragon skin. It was a pain in the ass but once done it was worth the effort. Boat outfitting 10 years ago was not even close to what it is today.
Perception Super Sport - fast and a squirt machine. I still have one of these and paddle it all the time with my 200 cm 60 offset Silver Creek paddle, gold Seda helmet and my old ass Extra Sport vest.
The interesting thing about these boats is that they were all designed as "play" boats but were really the best river running boats around back in the day when people actually ran rivers and park-n-play wasn't even a reality except for a few spots around the country.
I know (and generally accept) that change is a good thing but I sometimes long for the day when paddling was more fun and less business, marketing, merchandising, sponsorship, etc. However, everyone is different and enjoys the water in different ways and I fully respect that.
Ahhh, the good old days...
