thoughts on the M3

I'm considering a new creekboat, and really like the ideas and concepts behind the M3. I've been paddling an h3 for a few seasons and love it, with no complaints. I really like the idea of soft landings, and the ability to bounce off rocks with a displacement, but I can't compromise the ability to make a move. Every time I've tried boats like the huck or nomad I get frustrated with their lack of control. With my h3 I could make the move, so I wouldn't have to worry about hittin rocks. How does the m3 handle holes, does it punch em' well, or is rodeo creeking pretty common? What are the cons of the m3? It seems like a really good do it all class V boat. Where does it excel, river running(gore), bump and grind creeks(fishcreek), pool drop and slides (obj, big timber)?

The m3 is a very good design and I think you would deffinitley excel beyond where you are at in your h3. Pros to the m3 are good hull speed, great carving edge, excellent outfitting, ample storage, punches a hole like nobodys buisness. Cons to the m3 not alot of rocker in the boat particularly in the stern can make boofing out flat difficult, has a tendancy to go with the water ie there is alot of contact with the water and this boat so it can get pushed around, favors stronger paddlers. As size goes with this boat if you find yourself on the bubble get the smaller size. trust me.
