I know this is a rare boat and no replies so far...can anyone suggest anything of similar capacity? Looking for a playboat that can suit someone who is 18 stone. Thanks for your help.:-)

Hi. I have a monstar it's a year old and is in green White and black it has happy feet and rear airbags. I have only so far used it on the Thames weirs so it has the normal scuffs on the hull. If I were to change it I would buy a creek boat. If you are interested then I would be looking for around the £700 mark for it.

Might be pushing it with the weight, but how about an Old Superstar?

Managed to sit in a superstar on dry land but shop thought it might not float on river lol! Guess if I could demo one I might find out! Thanks for the suggestion. I wonder how many large paddlers out there also have problems? Perhaps they find a different sport?!

Try A Bliss Stick Rad 195 mate. That'll float you.
Whats the worst that can happen?

Techno george...are u too big for the bliss stick then? I looked them up and it sounded like they might do the job...how big are u? New jacksons are pricey hoping to find a second hand battle scarred one ...thanks for all the suggestions. Are the dagger agents big enough for 18stone? So far it looks like I might get in a bliss stick rad 195, a monstar, a dagger agent and a fuse 64-please comment if u disgaree-any more? suggestions welcome...i dont want to travel miles and find out my butt wont fit in lol!

I'm 6'5" tall, 120kg (250lb - 19 stone), 35"-36" inside leg, size 11 feet.

I've owned:
1) Old Jackson Superfun - Very tight fit, I could almost do flatwater tricks in this boat, but I was always a bit "stern heavy".
2) New(ish) Jackson Superfun - Bags of room, can't do flatwater tricks, but can get the trim right. Boat is too big, I almost yearn to have the old superfun back...

I've tried:
1) Jackson Monstar - Roomy, although couldn't get trim right (a bit "stern heavy"). Couldn't do flatwater tricks in it (although I can do more now than when I tried it - so might try it again).
2) Jackson RockStar L - Very tight fit, couldn't get trim right (a bit "stern heavy"), but could do some flatwater tricks in it - I think it's the best boat I've tried so far.
3) Project X 64 - Couldn't quite fit it
4) One of the Fluid range - again a tight fit, not sure which one (I think it was the Spice rather than the Nemesis)
5) Jackson SuperStar (08 I think) - had to move the seat right back and was very heavy on the stern.

Yes...still hoping there's a boat out there. I tried a dagger agent 6.4 today and it was too snug and mostly under water lol! Guess im left with a mon-star, fuse 64 or bliss stick rad 195. Any out there?! Oh and nothing lime green-dont wanna clash with the wife...
