Hyside Pro 16?

Had a slow day at work spent the day looking at big boats on the guvment dime.......

Anyone running the Hyside Pro 16'? Not the XT version but the narrower/longer straight tube version.

I'm intrigued by the dimensions of this boat but can't find much about it on the interweb.

A buddy rented one for Deso Grays in June from Mesa State in Grand Junction. Held a 16o yeti just fine, held my 150 qt igloo just fine and a big dry box. Was fun to row, and could have swallowed a ton more gear.
I just ordered a 16xt which supposedly has 7'9" straight tubes, the pro is supposed to have 7'7" straight tubes.
The xt is also wider by 10 inches total, some of that being taken by the 22" vs 21" tubes.
I'm in the buy once cry once camp on this boat. Loved my Achilles and NRS and they're both now in happy homes, one in AK and one in Southern CO.
Good luck, they're both great boats

Is that the Hyside that was designed for Class VI in WV?

For some reason I am thinking that the boat you are talking about was a boat that Hyside did for Class VI / Adventures on the Gorge rafting company.

When Avon stopped selling CVI boats I think Hyside and Sotar went after that business. I think Hyside won. You might call and talk to Alan Jennings, he'd know.
