Anyone ever paddled one and want to share how they liked it? I might be buying one as my first playboat. I'm about 5 lbs under the upper weight limit, so particularly interested if anyone over 200 lbs liked it.
I bought one new back in the day, paddled it for years, I loved it still own it . I was a carpenter 220 ish 6'2 and ran it down the Cache la Poudre daily for years class III - IV runs as you put on weight it tends to get a little stern squirty in holes but I also couldn't move seat forward. A blast in surf holes and swapping ends I was a little to old to start trying ariels but I enjoyed wave wheeling in small waves.
