Re: Cool pics!

I'm 155 lbs. and can attest to the speed of the SIS with a lighter paddler. I put my 25 yr old nephew in my West River 18, fast boat, and was able to hold my own with him in the SIS. Granted, I'm a more experienced paddler but I'm more than twice his age! There's not much I don't like about the SIS. Laszlo's right about the duck probably being a faster build. And Mac in Montreal fixed the "cooling pool of water" problem by simply corking the scupper. You'll have to get with him as to what type of wine bottle has the proper cork! At my weight no water comes in the cockpit.
And Laszlo, you're on for those crabcakes! I don't drink beer anyway. Kurt usually has mine!
I'm planning on being at the MASCF first weekend in October. I'll have my WR 18 and SIS. Possibly another CLC design if I get it done in time. Would like to meet any of you forum guys if you're close by.
