First day with the new Dog

Managed to get out for a quick paddle in the new creeker today. Typically there wasn't much water around so I only managed to get it on an easy class 2/3 river. I've got to say though I loved it. Fast, holds a line well, and is super forgiving. I really can't wait to get it on something steeper.
Anyway there's some pictures below (thanks Matt and Donna).

Also there's a very cold rolling movie......

Enjoy......










For those that are interested here's some quick rolling footage - thank me for this.........it was freezing!!!!

When I get some more pictures / video I'll stick them up

Big Dog OC1 creeker - out of the kennel

Ok here's a couple of pictures of the first Big Dog out of the mold. I've fitted it out (badly!) but it should give you a better idea of the boat. For those of you who are into weights and measures here's some very very rough vital statistics (I took these by myself so they are really just ballpark figures)..........

Length - 8'2"..............249 cm

Width - 26.5"..............68 cm (this is at the widest point)

Depth - 16"................40.5 cm

Think the weight with no outfitting was about 16kg

I like it. It's looks sporty yet has plenty of volume, and length to get you down the creeks and rivers. Next stop.......somewhere with water......

Here's some pictures.........
