Description

Used condition but sound, no major scratches or defects.
The Salto was designed with full on creeking in mind. The boat has a flattish hull under the seat to give you good initial stability and a round hull at the front of the boat to ensure that it tracks well through the biggest of holes. It is a real point and go boat, you just point it where you need to be and it will go straight there without getting knocked off course by boils or by planning when you need to be turning. Most of the new creek boats at the moment come with planning hulls, but this can cause them to scitter off course when boofing through big holes or into enclosed holes. The Salto never does this, even when fully submerged it continues to travel perfectly straight. Although it may seem quite long (245cm), the boat feels way shorter on the water and because of the big rocker on the nose, it goes surprisingly well down small steep creeks. The cut off back end looks quite strange but has the effect of acting like an outboard motor. On continuous water, it pushes the boat through pour overs and holes that would normally stop you and it also makes boofing straight extremely easy. In general, the boat handles very nicely turning fast and having very good forward speed, It tracks superbly and always carries you away from the bottom of a fall or hole even if you miss the boof and go deep!
