This is embarrassing. But I’m damn jeolous of paddling partner Rich’s Mirage 530. On one hand I laugh watching him squeezing his legs through its keyhole opening. But otherwise I’m just plain jeolous!
There’s just so much to like about this boat. The smooth lines, the in-line rudder, the electric pump (really jeolous of this feature), the handy glovebox, the good storage options. And there’s the low weight and speed, which really make me envious.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m very happy with my plastic fantastic (Cobra Expedition), and the 530 frankly is too small for a big fella like me, but still… I want it!
