There's little to think about here - a Sit On Top is simply an open hull (a paddleboard) with a seat that, as the name indicates . . . you sit on top of! They are easy to keep upright because they have a wider beam. This extra width makes them more stable. If they do flip they will upright easily because there is no enclosed cockpit to get swamped and the rotomolded type seals air inside making it naturally light and buoyant.
Sit On Tops are so popular that they account for almost one third of all the kayaks sold today, and are used all the time here at Pea River Outdoors!
They are manufactured in solo or tandem designs. Some designs have bulkheads built in for storage, though it's minimal. They are typically manufactured in plastic (rotomolded) or fiberglass which makes them very low maintenance, light weight and durable.
