Turtle..he does have fine paddling skills. I believe he uses quite good paddles by Marc Ornstein and paddles in the Adirondacks. He is like, Matt Bowler, looking for something extremely specific in a hull.

I would have suggested the Vagabond too, but the RapidFire is so close to the waterline shape of the Vag.

And as I have both the RF and the DragonFly and Turtle has either had a RF too and has paddled the DF, we can attest hulls do handle quite differently. So far there is not a cut down DragonFly..nor is there apt to be.

I don't think that taking a existing Vagabond and replacing the stern thwart with a wider one would work either to give more symmetrical rocker.

I believe the Vagabond plug may have been destroyed.
