I have had the C200 kayak…

Submitted by: paddler1448488 on 5/19/2021

I have had the C200 kayak for 10 years and have really enjoyed it. Excellent condition with a few scrapes and very little maintenance required Used mainly for day trips sometimes over 25K on St Lawrence, Muskoka, and Thames River and used once for week long camping on Georgian Bay (packs well). Easy to paddle and maintain a smooth 5 km per hour speed. Tracks very good and with rudder control excellent for camera work. Have been in some rough one metre waves in St Lawrence and it got me through it!

Only issue probably due to my age 75 is getting in and out. Need to sit on back deck and extend my legs to enter. Cannot just sit in with knees bent and then straighten legs due to shins hitting front cockpit ridge. Have wondered if there may be a better seat configuration that results in extended cockpit opening. Or maybe I need a new kayak. ??

This is a nice touring kayak for the intermediate paddler. It has a comfortable and adjustable high back seat. It tracks pretty straight and a rudder is included for even better tracking. I tried a P2 medium volume boat. At 5'10" I found the deck to be a little low when getting in or out of the cockpit. The thigh braces wrap over the top of your knees to keep them where they should be. I tested this boat out by putting it up on edge and performing a few rolls with it. Because this boat is designed more for comfort, it might not be the ideal choice for that. The seat is a little roomy for that kind of thing, though hip pads would fix that. The high seat back limits movement desired for advanced skills. The bottom of the seat back fits into a slot, and on one roll, it popped loose. In short, the Epsilon is a nice comfortable sea kayak for most paddlers. For more advanced paddlers who aren't all that concerned about comfort and regularly like to test their skills, Boreal makes the Baffin for that.

I have a Boreal Epsilon P300...great poly boat...but, I would not suggest the Epsilon or Baffin C200. While the overall design in terms of shape is great and handles well on water....the combing on both is not designed well....it is far too thin in material and it will not resist chipping or long-term wear....needs to be redesigned

I am now the owner of a Boreal Design Epsilon t200 kayak. decided to go with thermoformed because of the weight. Over 2 years have tried many different kayaks and many hrs of research. As soon as I tried the t200 I knew my search was over. Very responsive, comfortable and joy to paddle both with the rudder up or down. The people at Sealegs kayaking in Ladysmith were great to deal with and thanks to Mark at kayak distribution for suggesting them to me. Looking forward to many years of paddling my new kayak.

Just purchased an Epsion 200 Composite and am really impressed. It was built in 2011 and is one of the last built in Quebec Canada.

I have been out in calm conditions and paddled through 3 to 4 foot confused waves on Lake Ontario. This is a very stable boat, tracks very well without the rudder, edges nicely, and cruises along with very little effort. If the rudder is down it will handle high winds and track straight and true.

I am 64 years old 5'10" and 200 pounds and the boat fits like a glove. I cruise easily at about 4 - 4.5 mph for 15 - 20 miles with no back pain or discomfort! To me that says a lot. Excellent boat that I will never sell.
