Stellar has just updated the SEI, moving the cockpit forward a bit, narrowing the catch, rounding the seat, reducing cockpit volume, installing dual bailers, and making an excellent ski even better. Very likely the fastest of the intermediate skis, with better stability than the elite skis, this boat may be the ultimate all-around ski for many paddlers. See the new flyer below. I hope to have one of these 2nd generation SEI’s in house shortly. As a side note, all new Stellar skis are designed to accommodate kick-up over-stern rudders as well as under-stern rudders (and switch back and forth easily), giving you the optimum setup no matter what type of water you paddle.
