A PERFORMANCE SIT-ON-TOP

In addition to being the fastest undecked boat on the market, it’s also remarkably stable—one tester had to try several times to capsize it. The open cockpit lets air circulate on hot summer days but is protected enough to keep you dry when it’s cold. And who says a sit-on-top can’t have storage? The Tarpon 120’s middle hatch comes with graduated liners so you can fit large gear and not lose small things. There’s also a spacious rear storage bay for a large drybag, picnic basket, or snorkel gear. 12’x28″, 45 lbs; wildernesssystems.com
