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.........

I've paddles canoes for years and I want to move into something exactly like this. Love the Esquif Spanish Fly. Like the looks of the Blackfly line, How do I get one of these Big Dogs in the USA?
