The Dagger Tybee is a beautifully designed and built kayak - discontinued in 2002, it was designed for lightweight performance, stability, and maneuverability. The Tybee has a visually noticeable high quality layup, and while lightweight, one can see that its gel coat and composite is not thin.

Can't wait to take it for a real run this weekend.
