The Debulator and I are beginning to think about some SOT's to add to the arsenal. Mostly for snorkeling and possibly shallow water diving in the Gulf, but perhaps some swamp stomps where getting out of the boat frequently is needed.
I'm thinking I can make a narrow boat stable with an outrigger more easily than I can make a broad boat faster. Perhaps 14 - 16 foot in length. Fifty pounds or less would be very cool, as we're not getting younger and pulling over logs is a reality in our world. Smooth bottom would be easier in the swamps. I've looked at Eddyline, Hurricane, and RTM.

I'm really enjoying my Hurricane Skimmer 128, and now they also have a 14 ft version.

think these were the made in China variety. Did I read that due to problems with these China made yaks, they stopped production there?
You might be thinking of WS|

Wilderness Systems moved their composite manufacturing from China, to Estonia. I dunno about CD.

That'll give me something to chew on. The Kestrel did come to mind, but I'm preferring the open well style rear end for a tank of air and a BCD.
Look at Necky Vectors .|

Lighter than a Tarpon. Quick,narrow boats with decent stability. Don't know about carrying tanks but have a tank well.
