Hi salty, I would like to ask you opinion about the Chatham 16 composite and RM. I own a C17 and so far i really like the boat, however reading you comment on the 16, I'm now considering selling the C17 (just replace it like what you said an epic 18 or such if I want some speed) but on the other hand buy a C16. Here's my question, there is a $800 used C16 RM and a 1,800.00 C16 composite. Is there a big difference in hydrodynamics between the two boats? are they exactly the same in shape? If you will advise me what boat should I get the composite or RM C16? Sorry for the long question. I hope I'll get a reply from you.
I hope this gets to you, (not sure how it works)
I have question about the Raquette Falls carry and I don't have your e-mail
On the very first part of it , there are stone blocks(steps) for about the first fifty feet or so that are spaced very high from each other. Is there a path off to the side of them if I were to carry my canoe, or are those blocks the only thing available ?
We are going to Grand Manan for six days with kayaks. Any special places to boat should we be able to time the tides correctly? We have lived in Maine 21 years but the last time we went to GM was some 30 years ago. We have some Fundy experience having kayaked off Cobscook Bay with its 25 foot tides and consequent mud penalty should you be slow in loading.
Cheers everyone. I have a 17" Dolphin chief that could use a fresh paint on the inside only. I want to retain the original paint on the outside. I cannot find a paint to use for that particular purpose. I was hoping for feedback or comments on type of paint and maybe a recommendation where to find paint specifically for that purpose. Anyone care to comment / help?
