May as well piggy back on this thread. I'm more of a Browns, Numbers, Clear Creek type of guy. The upper end of my comfort if I'm having a good year are high water #s, low water Gore, Bailey...maybe OBJ etc.
Are there other boats to throw in the mix (new or used)?. Karma, Squirrel, etc.? You can demo on the Ark but I never seem to be able to get an idea on how they would handle in shallow blast rock mank. Of course the semi-planning hull creeker is always marketed as "rad in big water, rad in shallow creeks, catches eddies wicked good but don't trip up on rocks bruh!"
I'm 5'11 160, old but still strong as an ox. Seems like I prefer bigger boats and would like some capacity for shorter overnighters. Is the sweet spot for volume +/- 85 gallons?
Anyone want to try and talk me into their clapped out used whip they are trying to get rid of?
