Return to River runner/ play boat question

LL = Good…


IMHO LL boats are the best made, and they have the best outfitting by far….

If the boat fits you well and has the appropriate hull design for your paddling type, then go with LL. I’m switching from LL to Riot, but only because LL doesn’t have a boat that is the right length, volume, and hull design for me…

If I could have the same Riot hull design, but made by LL and with LL outfitting, I’d take it for sure!

In your case the Cross River is probably fine….. All those boats are almost identical, except for little finicky features that you probably won’t notice….. Choose the best manufacturing and outfitting, ‘cuz they’re otherwise all going to seem the same (one might be a teeny bit faster, one might be a teeny bit bouncier, etc, etc)…..

Although… The Rx 6.9 is maybe a little small for you (based on manufacturer specs)…
