Things to Love:

  •          Quick boat that tracks well even without the rudder.
  •          Plenty of secondary stability.
  •          Locking foot pegs keep the rudder in check


The Squall is great for day trips and can keep a quick pace. For touring, it does quite well when keeping a fast pace, but its storage capacity is somewhat lacking. There is plenty of room for a few days worth of gear, but the long slender bow and stern limit the available space.
