Submitted by uncle on Sun, 05/11/2008 - 1:47pm

The boat feels great, had a chance to paddle it around a little the other day. From my opinion, this season I been using a pegusus and scorpious and the hull feels bigger than peg but smaller than scorp luke said they are coming out with a new ama that will be similar to a wainui ama, try check out some photos on the paa solo pic by keizo and also the molo relay has some of danny and mark fraizer...Anxiuos to do a down wind run on a pueo.

P.S Another good thing about the pueo is you can get one fairly quick..Good jobs to the boys at Kamanu Composites...

OCP.com paparazzo in full effect!


...I've checked out the new ama too, but that's still too secret... Shhhh.

Black with Gold Specks and a Gold Sticker. That is over the top.

Damn. Imagine the chicks you could get with that on your truck.

nice nice.
but whats the real difference?
i see a change by the seat...thats about it

Looks like the deck profile is smoothed out. No more raised connection point for the Iakos on the deck. More like the Fuze/Fusion/Zephyr cockpit and Iako connections on the deck now with the seat embedded into the cockpit rim.

I really like that change. I owned a Fuze and own a Kaimana and the cockpit/deck in my mind was the best thing about the Fuze.

As a boat for me however, the Kaimana works better for me so seeing that key change in the Pueo is a big positive.

goto thats the first useful post Ive seen from you. Thanx for da pics:-)

Wow aquafiend, a complement from you, (even a backhanded one like that) means SO MUCH to me. I've been dying for any indication of approval from you. Thanks a whole bunch!

Not much, no. Have you always had such low self esteem that you needed to portray yourself in such a.....er, um, shitty way? For cryin out loud poo, this isnt some lil fraternity of your juvenile paddling buddys, change the avatar and show some respect to the outrigger community and to yourself.

#10 Mon, 05/12/2008 - 8:46am

Wow aquafiend, I may joke around, screw around, poke fun and act stupid, but I never once stooped as low as to get personal in my posts. I have never jeopardized my integrity in such a manner. It is disappointing to see other do so.

Or as that most famous paddler, Rodney King, once said, "Can't we all just get along".

Do people really look at the avatar? Now if poo could put some action into it, It would really get noticed!

#15 Mon, 05/12/2008 - 10:10am

Who is paddling the boat with the new longer line?

#16 Mon, 05/12/2008 - 10:14am

Well , how long is it ? How wide ?
got any specs?????

Danny said its chineless so , at least we have that much .
Pittbrah said the cockpit is like a Fuze so , that
s good too .

Please send data.....

Ama looks pretty good .. :)


#17 Mon, 05/12/2008 - 10:21am

And it's got that Peggie look about from that angle, which is also a good thing.


#18 Mon, 05/12/2008 - 11:28am

i own a kamau and the seat seems to fold out. after paddling for hours it really seems to affect me. the cockpit design looks real nice.

I like to call this one: "Adventures Across The Ka'iwi Channel With Danny and Mael"

#20 Tue, 05/13/2008 - 5:58pm

Goto-what is the specs on this canoe-specifically what is the weight range?

#21 Tue, 05/13/2008 - 6:11pm

cherry video goto

#22 Tue, 05/13/2008 - 7:17pm

Thank you for that.

#23 Tue, 05/13/2008 - 7:21pm

You're welcome. All I did was post it.

Thank Luke, Keizo and Kelly - same guys that brought you "On The Water"

#24 Tue, 05/13/2008 - 7:27pm

Sweet video!

Are you sure though that the video only featured Danny and Mael? I could have sworn I seen jc9_0 sportin' the red ballcap.

Yeah, there he is at 1:06.

Red ballcappers unite!!!

#25 Tue, 05/13/2008 - 9:58pm

#26 Tue, 05/13/2008 - 10:32pm

more pueo p0rn popping up


#27 Wed, 05/14/2008 - 2:13pm

The other night when I was driving, I saw a pueo flying toward the Kamanu shop at Kawainui. Maybe its an omen.

#28 Wed, 05/14/2008 - 7:50pm

One of the more interesting things about this boat is the shape of the rudder. Keizo can you comment on that shape/design?


#29 Sat, 05/17/2008 - 10:52pm

Ken, I will try to comment on that sometime, but anything like that would go out on the Kamanu website and not here. Though I've pretty much said what I know about rudders on the forum before: http://www.ocpaddler.com/node/2879
