Going out in a canoe in a small craft advisory in 50 degree water is the reason. It was a totally irresponsible to do such a thing. All for a soccer ball, what a tragic waste of life.

The 272 is the same length, width and weight of the Grady 271 Canyon and GW puts 300s on it. I believe Robalo put 200s on it as a way to lower the price. I would love to see 300s as an option but,...
