C-1

This is a Dagger Atom C-1.  It is basically a river kayak that has a foam saddle inside of it where you might expect there to be a seat.  So the paddler is actually on his/her knees, not their butt.  As you might have guessed this has advantages and disadvantages.  In a C-1 you are higher up in your boat and have better vision of your surroundings.  Also you have more leverage with your paddle stroke.  The challenge lies in the fact that you are paddling with a canoe paddle and are sacrificing a blade.  Another canoe outfitting concept!
