If you need a lightweight recreational boat that has an extra large cockpit, tracks well, and is super efficient, then the Hurricane Santee 116 Sport is the kayak you've been dreaming of!
A bit bigger than the Santee 116, the Hurricane Kayaks Santee 116 Sport kayak offers a little more depth and space in the cockpit plus features made for all-day touring or shorter trips. Perfect for touring lakeshores or lazy rivers, the Santee 116 Sport tracks well and moves efficiently through the water for an enjoyable day on the water. Trylon thermoformed ABS plastic hull material is stiff and light like traditional composite kayaks and offers similar looks, but it costs considerably less. Newly redesigned AireStream seat back is lightweight and incredibly breathable thanks to a contoured support frame covered with soft mesh fabric that maximizes air flow. To adjust the seat back for personalized fit, simply pull seat back forward to unlock, adjust and push back to relock. Crisp entry lines, excellent stability and responsive turning make the Santee 116 Sport an outstanding boat for all-around use. Extra-large cockpit opening facilitates gear storage-an extra cooler, a large dry bag or a midsized, 4-legged friend can come along for the ride. Storage areas on the side of the seat hold beverages and small items such as lip balm, sunscreen and a safety whistle. Stern deck rigging keeps extra gear within easy reach, and bulkheaded stern and bow with watertight hatches keeps items dry. Carry handles ease transport to the water.
I'd buy four of your Santee 116, if you'd just make the cockpit opening longer so we can get our birding gear stowed in easily," wrote JP. We did and he did. The Santee 116 Sport still handles like the incredible 116, but it is 17 inches longer in the opening. You can put fly rod tubes, tripods and other outdoor tools of play in the cockpit with you. Even the right dog can ride in there too. We're waiting for pictures of your cats. The 116 Sport still has a rear Hurricane hatch with watertight bulkhead, and it weighs in at a scant 35 lbs. So go ahead . . . take that extra cooler or dry box with you and make a day of it. Quiet lakes and rivers. Day touring quiet coastal waters and larger lakes. Coastal waters, day trips, overnight tripping.
