It's like moto x on water, these things handle incredible!! To watch some of these guys run is awesome! I bought it simply because of the fact that we have alot more rivers here than lakes. A few guys I know talked me into buying an aluminum boat to run but were a bit surprised when i bought that :D. The learning curve is extremely challenging to say the least. Running up river is a lot easier than running down..can't see the rocks or gravel bars as easily when your comin down river.... and if you dont remember your up river run you can get into some interesting predicaments incredibly fast :D. I have only had about 15 hours in it ( at about 700 bucks an hour ) and still have white knuckles in the passenger seat. As long as you listen to advice some of the guys give, wear your gear and have the nuts ..it's an incredible rush! No one has gotten out disappointed:D

Probably missed my question above the picture :), not a big deal pretty sure it is it.



Do you know why he sold it? Did he get out of the sport or move to a new boat? Just curious.

To get out of the sport. I was gonna race it this year but with the current oil patch the way it is I opted out of this season. I had 5 sponsors set up to go at 10 k each but wasn't sure about throwing down another 50 to match them..If I don't sell it this year I'll keep it and race next year. Right now it's just a sHitload of fun to hop in and run the rivers up here..
