I have a wilderness sytems ride. I purchased mainly for stability- this boat is a slug in the water! However, on those days wehn the sound is glassy smooth I can stand on it to cast so I am pretty happy overall. My fishing buddy just purchase the Tarpon 160 and is expecting delivery this week. We are planning to head out to either Hood Canal or Poseesion this weekend.
He went out to Olympic Sports in Poulsbo to test a number of different boats (Pungo, Perception, Ocean Kayak) and came back with settling on the Tarpon. I would be happy to talk you through the selection process we both went through if you want- PM me and I will send you my contact info.
