BHey, you're preachin' to choir here. I grew up on these things And I absolutly love my Dragonfly.Stable, dependable and beautiful to boot. Last year, while on a poker run a freak storm blew up on Lake Dillon. All boaters either went for the coves or back to the docks. My son and I continued the poker run, in the lead, which is very unusual for my Skiff @ 9000 ft. My wife was at the docks bringing boats in and tying them off. We had one swamped by following water and another lost power and blew into a moored sailboat. Both made it back safely, if not a little shaken. Maggie was asking everybody, "where the hell are Peter and Dallas?" Finally, one of our members said,"they're comin up the Blue river like a bat outta hell, don't worry about them!" On our way back we were able to assist in a sailboat that had tipped, got our last card and back to the marina. Was it hairy? YEP. Was I worried? Maybe a titch. But, I remebered coming back in a storm w/ my dad, off the coast of New Jersey and thinking , this is not as bad as that, so my son and I just kept her on top of the water and she performed beautifully. We returned to the dock to a hero's welcome, and as my son said, "the most fun I've had legally with my pants on, ever!" Yep I love these boats!
