- If by "it", implies a boat that does everything better than other boats, it doesn't exist. The list of "best" in any particular category are not the same for other characteristic. So there's not one boat that's better in all area.
- But if by "it" is a boat that allows enjoyment on water, then any boat would do. OK, any boat that's sea worthy and can be handled predictably in skilled hands. That means just about EVERY single sea kayak on the market.
Each may have different characteristic. But all will put a smile on your face!
- A common criteria for "the" boat (not "it" boat), is a boat with a wide performance envelope, i.e. performs well in many area, though not necessarily "best of the breed" in any single area. That's where the name of Romany (Explorer), Norlow etc. comes in.
These are boats that, if you can only have one boat, they're the most balanced COMPROMISE!
