TWICE AS FUN, TWICE AS HARD
How much do you really trust your paddling partner? How solid is your marriage? The Topo Duo may have the answers. It’s the only two-person whitewater boat in production. A strong paddler can right both the boat and an accompanying novice, but beware: There are no bulkheads, so if one person gets scared and pulls the ejection handle, both of you are going in the drink. 135 gal; eskimousa.com
Bonus: The look on the stern paddler’s face after being launched ten feet in an ender.
