  canoes, but
  Posted by: daggermat on Dec-21-12 8:59 PM (EST)
 

that's a good question. Still have my first canoe, a 15' Dagger Reflection, and that has become my all around "go to" boat. Cl.2, decent enough for poling, center seat for paddling, nice comfortable boat for long days. The Dumoine went from cl.2-3 tandem to a dedicated poling boat, though I could tandem if i wanted I suppose.
The Whitesell; dedicated ww tandem pig, but fun in the big water. PITA, dedicated side for paddling, seats both near center, fun having 420 pounds of paddler surfing though.
Dagger Encore pretty dedicated ww river runner.
Millbrook Flashback, a ballerina of boats, nice ww runner, twitchy, deceptively dry, but a fragile boat, not used on ledges.
The boats i got rid of were all specialized. Squirtboat for going underwater, a couple c1's, which were specialized only due to the fact that after 20 minutes I needed out...so they became park and play boats.
Think I need a new composite all around boat. No problem paddling flatwater in a moderately rockered boat, thinking Millbrook Coho with an extra layer of glass or 2. Soon as my Reflection bites the dust which will be any decade now...
