I love my Santee 116 sport kayak! Tracks nicely, yet turns on a dime. Light and easy to car top, and is quite eye-catching. I have had tons of compliments on my boat - which I've had for 6 years. Hurricane gives good customer service too. A bit bouncy on waves due to short length - this is not an ocean boat. Does great in class I to III river rapids, watch out for the rocks even though the hull takes quite a beating with only minor scratches. Great kayak for it's intended use of lakes and rivers, I can paddle upstream on fast water better than anyone else I've paddled with. Quite useful when you overshoot the take-out, arghhh!
