The Sabalo (also known as Silver King, Silver Sides, and Tarpon) is a large, hard fighting fish and is judged by many to be the worlds most exciting gamefish.

The stern has a small transom located above the waterline for paddling efficiency and help prevent stern "squatting" if you are punching over a big wave.

The cockpit and tankwell are both self-bailing which provides for excellent safety in the event you take on water. Sound judgment and paddling skill are still requirements.
