As a father, one of the things I appreciateĀ  about my Wahoo! is how kid-friendly they are. That manifests itself in a variety of ways: their stability, their unsinkability, the uncluttered cockpit that makes boarding and moving around once aboard easy. They’re simple to launch and operate.

Like their Whaler cousins, they’re also great teaching boats for kids, as demonstrated here by my eight year old, Sarah, taking her first turn at the helm.
