I concur with your review. I demo’d a Fun Runner 70 Sunday on the Shirttail run of the NF American and loved it! You can get a whip lash injury snapping into eddies with that boat! My friend Bird says she jet surfed a FR-60 across the Hole 1 wave at the Reno WhiteWater Park so fast her hair was blown straight back even with her helmet on!
My stats are:
Size 11 shoe
I had the seat centered, neutral trim, and the front bulkhead about as far forward as I could get it without altering the factory foam foot pad. Still my feet were just a little cramped by the end of the day (I had NRS river booties on). Otherwise the boat felt a little large on me (I added over an inch total of hip shims and was still a wee bit loose). Though I’m sure there’d be times when the extra volume would be appreciated.
So I’m going to try and squeeze myself into a 60 and increase the playful factor even more.
I own several Jackson boats, a 2009 4Fun & a 2010 Hero. So I’m used to Jackson outfitting. The Fun Runner’s set up is a big improvement on an all ready good thing.
Thanks for your review. I, too, really liked this boat!
