My wife and I have had our Skimmer 116s for a couple of months now and absolutely love them. As an older paddler with a bad back, weight was critical and the Skimmer hasn't disappointed--I can singlehandedly load ours without pain and my wife is eager to take them out on her own, as well, because she can easily handle them. The standard seat is quite comfortable, too.
Pun intended, but it only takes a few strokes and you're up to speed and skimming along nicely. Very stable. Other boaters and paddlers regularly tell us how nice they look both in and out of the water. Build quality is excellent and the finish differentiates them from almost any other yak out there. Absolutely satisfied with the purchase.
Thanks to the Backpackers Shop for special ordering the 116s for us when they only had the larger versions in stock.
