I need a safety boat.

I swam Gore rapid on my last trip in 2009. The broken Z below Pryrite was mine. It's was my favorite Gore/ highwater Royal Gorge safety boat. I've worked as a safety boater for 10+ years, and hate using creek boats. If I get pulled into holes with fat drowning Texans I want to be in big river play boat. I bought a Prijon Wizard and the 61 gallons was enough, but the lack of edge made catching the eddy in Sunshine tougher. Does anybody have an opinion? I'm thinking Orbit Fish, EZG 60, or Sub 7/8.

Maybe check out the Fluid Spice. It's a pretty similar shape to the Z, with a more modern hull. That or maybe the Detox, although the detox handles a bit like a creekboat. Try them out.

Thanks I didn't even think about a L Spice.

I like the EZG 60 b/c I can flat water cartwheel it, I couldn't even wavewheel the Z. The RGR boys are all sex crazed and retard strong for anything Fluid. I'll demo a Spice from them. Anyone else? I like to stress this is for big water Class IV not Class V.
