Phoenix Appalachian

-- Last Updated: May-23-06 8:35 PM EST --

Any of you long time paddlers know about these boats. Have the opportunity to purchase one and was wondering what its all about. Supposed to be a large persons version of a Cascade. The Cascade is billed as a river runner. At almost 14 feet it seems a bit long. Any info would be appreciated.

i have both
an appalachian and a cascade. i love em! great boats, very versatile, durable and hi performance downriver runners. mine are set up with skegs for all round paddling

The Appalachian is not very handy
in rapids by modern standards. However, it is well-built, and in my view would be a better dual-purpose boat than the late Dagger Crossover.
