BEST FOR: Easy-moving water. THE TEST: The Dayliner S looks like an ordinary plastic boat with standard features: a spacious cockpit, decent deck outfitting, and ample hatches. Put your paddle to the water, however, and you’ll discover its superpowers. With a few strong strokes, the boat rockets forward, tracking straight. The secret is twofold: First, the Dayliner is made from the same stiff and sturdy thermoformed polyethylene used in snowboard bases. Second, the hull has a narrow, flat center with sides hollowed out from underneath—a concave pattern that reduces resistance but also makes turning a bit sluggish. THE VERDICT: A do-everything boat. 12'6"; 48.5 lbs
