After trying many kayaks, I settled on purchasing the Hurricane Skimmer 116. At 42 lbs, this little beauty is perfect for me. I am a 55 year old female who loves the outdoors. I wanted a yak light enough that I could handle by myself, yet stable enough to fish from. I can car top it easily, carry to the beach or lake with little effort, and secure a milk crate on the back deck with my fishing gear. It glides easily through the water and I love the way it handles.
The seat provides all day paddling comfort. As a woman looking for a kayak, this one is a great fit for me. It also has a 300 lb. weight limit, unlike other lighter kayaks, so sharing it with my husband loaded up with cooler and fishing gear is not a problem.
