I am a second year paddler looking for a good used boat. I'm currently boating with a Perception ARC, and I think that I'm out growing it. I'm looking for a shorter boat so that I can maneuver better but something with enough volume to run big water. Right now I've just been running rivers, but I would like to get into creeking by next season. I don't know very much about boats, but after browsing the forums, it looks like the Gus and Nomad are pretty good. I would like some more input on these boats and any other suggestions. I'm a 6'-3", 200lb, aggressive paddler looking for some help. Thanks!!
