User Review: Wilderness Systems Pungo 120
Price Paid: $600
Until it got stolen this past summer my Pungo 120 was my boat of choice for over 8 years. It was the perfect mix between touring kayak, and recreational boat. I would pack it up with 5 days worth of gear and some luxuries and hit the water and she performed brilliantly from flat water lakes in wind to small twisty rivers with some class 2 and below rapids.
The seating system is fantastic, the hull design tracks dead straight, and is surprisingly fast out on the water. Paddling this boat was not a chore as most recreational boats are. You could easily store a weeks worth of gear in it. I hope my boat turns up again in the near future. I loved this boat like no other.
I have a 17' touring kayak, a 10' creek boat modified into a whitewater expedition boat, a couple of river runners, a 10' rec boat, and another 12' kayak. None of them compared this boat. I miss my Pungo!
