Thanks for taking the time to share your experience on the Canham and the Chamonix. I have seen the Chamonix's on eBay (I think that is where you must buy them new, is that true?) and I have drooled over this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9j7axnQhQWg
I think I'm going to have to hope someone wants to trade, or I'm going to have to wait to get what I really desire. Meanwhile I still have my Korona and my Cambo, so I have choices.
