Skimmer 120 Propel Description

After 9 successful years on the water, the Propel Pedal Drive system has landed in a beautiful, lightweight Hurricane Skimmer 120 design. While heavy polyethylene barges often require a trailer for transport, this 59 lb Skimmer 120 Propel can easily be moved from your car-top to the water and back again by hand. The Skimmer 120 Propel isn’t just a pleasure to car-top though; it delivers as a recreational hands-free cruising kayak too. With a sharp entry flared bow for enhanced glide and smooth travel in choppy water, the Skimmer 120 Propel cruises with efficiency and grace. Combine that with a pedal drive system that creates unique on-water opportunities for fishing, bird watching, nature photography, and exercise, and you have a winning combination for sure. This lightweight pedaling machine also features a 1st Class frame seat with sliding adjustment for comfortable, proper on-water ergonomics and a port side steering mechanism that handles easily via finger-tip control. Enlighten yourself by experiencing a Hurricane.

Initially purchased as a recreation yak, but with aim of some light fishing eventually. This yak is sleek, Extremely lightweight and fast through the water.. my two biggest complaints, the rudder isn’t as pronounced as I would like and so it doesn’t turn as tightly as I would like, especially at slow speed. The other, because it’s sleek design, it can be a little wobbly, but with practice it’s a case of improving your balance (although you won’t be standing up on this yak without stabilizing floats imo). Lastly, it’s a great looking yak Because of the thermoform finish, and once installed with a few choice fishing accessories, it does the trick nicely and I can still comfortably use recreationally 👍
