Hurricane Skimmer 116

Today I paddled another addition to my fleet; the Hurricane Skimmer 116. It was an absolutely gorgeous day on the water. I paddled the Skimmer 116 while teaching an Intro to Kayaking class at the Discovery Bay Yacht Harbor. The temperature was in the low 80's and the water was the glassiest I've seen.

The Skimmer 116 is an awesome boat to paddle! Though on the shorter side at 11'6" it paddles like a much longer boat as far as speed goes. This boat is easy to maneuver and turns on a dime. Like the Skimmer 128, it's made of Trylon and weighs in at 39 lbs., making it a breeze to load and unload. It comes with a hatch in the bow and a day hatch in front of the seat. The rear tank well is designed to hold a 5 gallon bucket for your fishing needs or ample rear storage for other gear or goodies you want to take along on your paddle. I'm very impressed on how this kayak handles and believe it would work well for beginners or experienced paddlers alike. This boat is also available for demo or you may request it for use on one of our tours. Contact Delta Kayak Adventures for more info.
