  That's a bad angle for assessing rocker.
  Posted by: ezwater on May-15-13 11:27 PM (EST)

But if that were the only photo available to me, I would never expect that kayak to have enough rocker to be used even in the cruising class of a weekend slalom race. By contrast, the "page 83" kayak clearly has lifted ends and pretty good rocker for a boat raced in 1965.

You don't need to make excuses for the OP. He didn't know what he had, but he's already showed that it's a fast boat, fast enough to race in cruising downriver events.
