Your favorite Creek Boat

Hopefully this will be fun, educational and maybe bring out a bitch slap or two. I personally hate the Huck - I pearled the bow while safety boating the S-Turn and plowed it right into the Pine Creek hole. That was a rather embarassing surf. S Lee - I couldn't remember what that old ass boat was that you stomped the Source at 415 in or I would have added it to the poll!

Booyah - There's the Crux (looks good) and the Top Duo - what ever happened to those sickos that showed up several times at Gorefest with one?

I added Coran's designs too, but I've got to say that I don't see the point. Yes he pushes for innovative designs and is a sicko (check out NCRC), but are those really anyone's Fav Boat (reps excluded)?

The Diesel, Mamba, and Hoss series are not true creekers and are therefore excluded. Yes you can run Gorilla in a playboat or river runner- that does not make it a creek boat.

You forgot a bunch.....like the entire Riot, Fluid and DragoRossi lines among others. Riot Big Gun, Sniper, and Magnum, Fluid Solo, Drago Mafia, oh and the Necky Crux. The Wavesport Diesel is another one that should probably be on there.

How is the Diesel not a creeker? A good chunk of the class V boaters I know use it as such quite happily. It may have the flat bottom, but its got volume, response and friendliness, which in my mind makes it a creeker.

Sure, you can take it down a creek, but wavesport doesn't market it as a creeker. It's "The most versitile, all-river, all-conditions whitewater kayak evermade." That's from their website. Thus...it's not really a creeker. If you throw up the diesel, you have to include the Hoss and Lil' Joe, too. I'm not knocking the boat...never paddled one..just saying it's a "river runner".

Blunt is my fav as far as all the boats I've paddled....however, I have been paddling the same blunt for at least 7 years! That tells you something about the blunt but it is heavy as hell.
