I picked up an older (2009) Santee 116 a few months ago for $300. It is a great little boat for exploring the creeks, marshes and cypress swamps around Wilmington NC. The light weight and short length makes it easy to get on and off the truck rack. It tracks well and is very easy to maneuver. The cockpit is smaller on the older models so I am able to use the spray skirts from my other boats(Seals 2.2)

My only complaint is the high back seat back. It makes self rescues and recoveries more difficult and is also uncomfortable for me. Fortunately the seat back is removable without modification and was easily replaced with a NRS backband. The toe room is tight. If you have feet larger than size 11 you will be bare-footing.
