Not a whitewater boat, but what looks to be a fun recreational boat. Old Town Next. A canoe/kayak hybrid.

I saw a prototype Pyranha 9R being tested on a river last Saturday. It was made from a fibreglass mould as a prototype so the plastic couldn't be heated to the temps you would have in a normal production mould, so it also used a lot more plastic than the final production version. Even so it felt like a very light boat to lift up.

I am a bit dubious of the "fin" things at the front of the hull. Apparently they are supposed to help plane the nose up on landings off drops to help he boat carry speed.
