Bore

Cold wet brown water and mud, oh and surfers. apart from that its great.

For an older boat have you tried a wavesport X? its a fair size boat and in its time a great play boat.
Alternatively the largest T4 from wavesport would suit as Kayackojacko paddled it very well and he's a big lad!

I found its short length made the boat manouverable, it boofed well and resurfaced predictably. The flat hull though made a high boof out the question and I seemed to catch the edge a lo...

Rich, Dont listen to them its you not the boat, the reason you had'nt swam for so long is directly linked to the fact you havent paddled for so long. As for advertising the fact, i would say its fine line between bravery and stupidity. Reading the above says more about what a 5* means. Swimming mean...
