I am 5'8", tend to weigh between 165-175. I've read only a few reviews of the gangster, but am interested in it. You are the Drago Rossi rep aren't you?
My questions: For the feel I like, I am a bit too heavy for the diesel 65, the diesel 75 feels too large. I like the way I fit in the new burn M, and love the way that boat paddles, but I am not too crazy about its cockpit. Based on that, m I too heavy for the gangster?
I also like the diesel's size cockpit opening. The I-4 L I paddle has a cockpit opening smaller than I like. That was the main reason I never looked at the mafia. Is the gangster opening bigger? I like to be able to pull both knees up and out together.
I've read a few reviews about the gangster paddling more from the stern. What does that mean? I've had boats that my long legs force me to sit back with the boat out of trim. I don't really like a boat that gets the stern pushed around.
Is it possible to demo the boat? I like the burn, but I would hate to wind up with one if gangster is a whole lot better for my size and paddling style.
