  You have a fast ww river cruiser.

A few are still made today.

You may be able to "clean up" in the cruising class of ww downriver racing events. At least you'll have a nice boat in which to compete. Most of today's ww kayaks are total pigs for ww downriver cruising.

When I was boat inspector, I used to have problems when a racer entered cruising class with an old, fast ww boat. The racers with newer boats would whine and say, "That's a racing boat, not a cruising boat." And I would say, "I'm the boat inspector, and that is not, and never was, a racing boat. If you're in the cruising class, why do you care?"
