Its a Tarpon!

Ordered my WS Tarpon today

Small boat show was, well, small...but enough there for me - they had Heritage SOTs which looked nice and Feathercraft Java which looked awesome but at twice the price. Made more sense to get a Yak + Drysuit for almost the same $.

Angler package, also sprang for a drysuit - should all arive in a couple of weeks then it's down to the sounds for somw lessons from Ms Kayak

Congrats Adrian. I'm looking for another yak and if it were up to me I'd be looking at the Tarpon. But my wife thinks we should have a tandem. I'm going to try to convince her that she loves the Pungo. Then I'll be able to choose my weapon - both on the purchase and when I go fishing.

Really getting itchy.

Fred,

We should talk. I'm actually thinking about selling my Manteo & buying 2 tandems so the whole family can get out. The purchase of a boat this season is about dead. We'll know for sure after the boat show this weekend.

Maybe the lovely Mrs. A would be interested in a bright red Manteo with good karma??

Thumbs down NOOOOOO, DON'T DO IT ROOP

Roop, don't get rid of your manteo!!! too hard to control a tandem as a solo. also, the advice I got before getting my Pungo... when I asked if I should consider a tandem instead, the salesman smirked and said they refer to tamndems as divorce boats! enough said??? Tom D

Appreciate the concern Tom but I'm thinking about one of the Loon "adjustable" tandems - 138T or 160T.

Not crazy about the huge open cockpit, it's more like a decked canoe but, I see it as a great addition (decided to keep the Manteo after yesterday's paddle) so I can take non-paddlers.
