Gangser, Salto, Crux



compare these
Salto/Gangster(playak)
as well as these boats
Gangster/Crux(playak)
and also try this
Crux/Salto(playak)

People are quickly becoming fans of the DR Gangster. I agree that it's a good boat, but was curious why so many folks were taking an instant liking to it. I suppose the positive design attributes of some other well-tested creek boats are similar in feel to this new boat. So, I thought I'd do a quick comparison, and playak is the easiest place to do that.
