Bob...I got the King pirogue from Ron Chapman...a bit bigger than yours but still a great way to slide thru the swamp...I agree that it isnt for whitewater with the flat bottom but it'll float on a heavy dew...Bob Hurley said:Probably not suitable for your needs but I have a Copperhead pirogue by Ron Chapman. They're kinda scary for new canoeists, but the whitewater guides that have tried mine love it - even though whitewater is the last place you'd want to take it.
I'd like to have one of his Evangeline canoes for larger loads, the little Copperhead isn't really big enough for two people.
This type of inflatable kayak (tahiti) is really only a beach toy. Fine for having fun a few yards from shore on a windless day or if theres an onshore wind.fungy said:
