  Love my Father-of-Zephyr
  Posted by: aamapes on Nov-29-12 8:30 AM (EST)
 

I have an old Dagger Meridian SK, which spawned the Zephyrs. It's 16', flat-bottomed and rockered. It's also quite fast and very quick-turning.

Without using the skeg, it's a boat that makes you concentrate to paddle straight. An inch of skeg gives enough tracking to behave nicely. It's the only boat where I routinely use some skeg. That said, I love the quick feel of an easy turning boat like this. I've got paddled a Zephyr outdoors, but I think you will like it. The one time I got in one, it was great for rolling in the pool.

My Murrelet kit should arrive later this week. It should give me a quick-turner in wood.
