Vajda C-2 Update
April 30, 2009 by Don Gentle
After finally getting the boats through customs and getting them back to camp, Fritz Orr has just put a couple seats in one of the Vajda C-2’s this week! Benjamin Birdsong and I decided to take it for a test run on the lake to see how the seat placement worked out.
The boat is so fast, it’s amazing! We paddled around a bit, but Benjamin’s big plan was to try to roll it. The first try was a swimming event in the cold springtime lake water. I blamed him (the truth); he said it was my fault (lie). By the second try, we had it down and it was a success. The campers are really going to enjoy these new canoes!!! As soon as Fritz gets them fully outfitted, Benjamin and I are heading back out on the lake and maybe a river. My knees are still recovering from the bare Kevlar scrapes! I can’t wait!
