small creeker

my school's club is planning on buying some new boats this winter. The favourite boat right now is a small Burn - anyone paddle something similar they want to recommend?

In my experience with buying boats for a club you want to buy a boat for beginners, I'm not saying a boat like a burn/diesel/remix isn't a good beginner boat. I just think you should look at a boat that will allow newcomers to playboat a bit more maybe a fun/fuze/recoil, that way they can have a bit more stability but can also play a bit.

Take a look at the Sm. Ammo's........such a friendly boat with HUGE potential....creekin'/playin' whatever. A bit shorter than the Sm. burn....

I'll second what TJ said......there are better boats that will allow newbs to progress more quickly simply because they are more stable and allow more play.....which is the best thing to do to advance the skills.
