EXPEDITION BOAT

The Delta Sport 17’s full-volume hull, from bow to stern, means dry decks and more than 55 gallons of covered storage—not counting what you can cram around you in the cockpit. Translation:It’s possible to haul up to 350 pounds of gear in this
expedition-ready boat. It’s tough: Delta uses Solarkote, an acrylic outer layer that provides abrasion resistance against rocks and UV protection from the sun. Just remember: It’s not as nimble as the smaller boats here, and it performs best when fully loaded. 17’x22.5″, 52 lbs; deltakayaks.com
