  Viper 10.4
  Posted by: old_user on May-08-13 4:22 PM (EST)
 

I just tried my new Viper from Menards on the Kickapoo. Fast and twisty river, Moderate downfall obstacles and heavy hydraulics. The Viper actually outperformed my Dirigo 120 for stability. It's a flatter hull design so you loose some steering stability but you're not gonna fall out or roll unless you try hard. If the deal comes around again I'm gonna dump my Pelican for another Viper. Plenty of cargo space for weekend minimalist. Only question is how it will work as a gear hauling tow for the longer trips.
