The Tango is a full-sized tandem kayak popular with guides and outfitters for its speed and cargo carrying capacity. The seats are spaced far enough apart to facilitate asynchronized paddling, and this also allows the addition of a third watertight storage compartment amidships. Designed with a flared bow and continuous V bottom, the Tango provides added stability and reserve buoyancy. With numerous race wins in rough water conditions, the Tango has become a solid choice for adventure racing as well. A large Feathercraft™ K2 tandem rudder is included.

Beam - Width of a kayak when measured at its widest point

Bulkhead - A partition inside the kayak that creates a separate watertight compartment for gear stowage and safety buoyancy

Chine - Where the curving sides of the hull gradually merge into the bottom

Cockpit - The opening in the kayak deck in which the paddler sits

Deck - The top of the kayak

Keel -The centerline ridge that runs along the hull of the kayak from bow to stern that helps maintain a straight course and provides stability

Rocker - The upward sweep of the keel toward the bow and stern. The more pronounced the rocker, the easier the kayak is to pivot

Stability - How easily the boat stays right-side-up in the water

Primary Stability - Primary stability is the relative stability of a boat that is sitting flat on the water right-side-up. A wider base gives increased primary stability

Secondary Stability - Secondary stability comes into play when the boat is turned on its side. The more surface area touching the water equals better stability. Good secondary stability helps keep the kayak upright when the paddler's balance goes beyond the primary stability

Skeg - A small fin mounted on the stern keel that provides increased tracking in windy conditions on rudderless kayaks
