You want some space to stow stuff for a serious day trip? Done again. Did we mention lightweight? Done a third time. If you re looking for the best recreational boat on the water, rest your eyes.

Santee 116

Maybe your right arm is stronger than your left; maybe your body tilts east when you really wanna go west; or maybe your personal gyroscope hasn’t worked since the Clinton administration. Whatever the case, the inability to paddle your recreational kayak in a straight line makes your experience on the water, well, challenging. Not to worry. We solved that problem with the Santee 116, a rec kayak that’s easy to paddle in a straight line! The Swede form design makes it simple (and fun and rewarding and spirit-lifting) to get from point A to point B . . . without wandering to all points in-between. You can toss enough gear in the ample hatches for a serious daytrip, hit a river or lake or coastal inlet, and cut a smooth steady trail across the water. As a bonus, you won’t tear a rotator cuff putting the 116 on your roof rack because it tips the scales at a svelte 38 pounds. (Spoiler alert the Santee 116 won’t fight you when you paddle. It’ll work with you, so you’ll end up having a blast.)
