Best flat water OC2

Hello,from U.K. what would be considered the best flat water OC2? It would be used on rivers and canals in U.K. the highest wave ever encountered would be the wash from a passing cruser !! Also what speed could one expect over say 2/3 miles with good club standard paddlers.Any sugestions would be very welcome.
Regards to all Eric C.

Eric I wish I could answer your question. Either way I'm stoked you're using US standard units being in the UK and all. Be patient someone will be on this.

Agree with the Huki. It holds the glide better than other ones i have tried in the flat water.

Just saw it in Va'a Connection's Shop. I didn't have a Camera with me to take a pic. They had just received it and the girl working there couldn't give me a price...
Just imagine a V3 without the middle seat.

Huki V2-X? Looks like an OC-2? There is a big difference. Same with V1 and OC1. There is a difference? Right?

Clarification please, so there's no confusion?

Huki's V2-X is an OC-2. The "V2-X" is his model number (I think), its not a Tahitian V-2.

The only OC-2 I've ever paddled was a Huki V2-Z. Seemed pretty stable, and I liked it. This was in a pretty flat bay.

Hiro, a V3 without the middle seat would be "amaless" also, haha !
Just kidding.
I asked some builders (tahitians and europeans) in the past years about the opportunity of building a V2, and the answer was always : no way !
In fact, that's the reason why I just purchased an OC2 !
I'm really interested in seeing this V2 :-)

Eric, sorry about my spamming your post with V2 issues.
By the way, I can tell you about my brand new allwave oracle OC2.
It's just a rocket ! loved that boat at first paddle (yesterday indeed) ;-)
The manufacturer is Italian, but I'm pretty sure they've got a dealer in UK.

There, just found this :

The very reasons I'd still prefer a V2 if any came handy :
1° I get bored easily, so I'd rather steer and paddle with complex strokes thant just pull forward for 2 hours !
2° I fear for that long carbon rudder : probably top efficient in the surf, smoothly balanced, but you'd want a shorter one to avoid rocks on river (even my lake got some nasty rocks in the middle !)
