2006 Boat Reviews

2006 boat reviews from Kayak magazine---from a recent test trip to Oregon. Sorry, most of the new creek boats weren't ready yet. Look for more reviews later...

burn or streatch?

Sup with your review of the Stretch? Or is it the Burn?

Pyranha Stretch

All you haters out there who love to diss the downriver playboat, get ready to repent. The Stretch ($999) is going to change your mind. Remember the Pyranha Razor, a pre-planing hull model that worked well on everything? The Burn is a post-millennium version of that classic, with a fatter tail to ward off unwanted stern squirts. You can also spin this boat like a bad record to make beautiful music, unlike the Razor. And yeah, it’s fast. While the pure playboaters had to sprint to stay aboard Lake Creek’s speedy Redhill Wave, the Burn coasted at mach speed.

Advanced boaters who want a boat to run creeks and rivers and still play the odd wave will swoon to the Stretch. Intermediates and beginners who yearn for a single boat? You-Stretch-ya. Washington’s Wind River at 4,000? Perfect. Colorado’s Gore Canyon at summer flows? Great. The Green at 200 percent? Don’t kid yourself—get a creek boat. But if you’re looking for one of the best all-around boats on the market, it’s no Stretch. You’ve found your mate. Specs: M/L, 6’10, 31 lbs., 58 gal.; L/XL, 7’, 32 lbs., 64 gal. Info: (82 254-1101, www.pyranhaus.com.

Stretch Out

Yeah, that was a pre-print version. We've changed it on the web and in the mag. The Stretch is a really cool boat and deserves the press.....PM me your address and I'll send you some free mags for the confusion..We're excited to see the Burn too, as you could tell...thanks Damon.....
