Corran Addison has recently offered is new F Bomb with Hooptie outfitting. Essentially a new hull design with stripped backed outfitting that can be customised by its owner. Having paddled for over 30 years I remember outfitting boats with bit of foam and plenty of glue. I for one think that this is an excellent idea.
Check it out.
Corran Addison has some serious Ninja Plastic Welding skills. Here is what he did to a Soul Main Squeeze.
One of my favorite boats of all time is the Dragorossi Squashtail. But it has some issues. First off – footroom. Ouch.
That inside rail is just in the wrong place and hurts like hell. Then the knees are too low, and the concave sidewall while awesome on a glassy wave, is hell on anything…
When I was about 16/17, I bought a Pyranha S6 that had these brilliant thigh braces called ‘Hookers’ that you could adjust not only back and forward but rotating them. This allowed you to make them easier to get out by having less coverage of your leg or, in my case, give you as much connectivity in the boat as possible but covering more of your leg.
