I use my Tsunami 145 primarily for multi-day trips on the nearby Wisconsin River and take it along on many trips in the area, approx 400 miles on it so far. I've found it to be an excellent boat with great weight carrying ability and stability. Large cockpit to fit my 6'2" 225lbs (and big feet). Comfortable seating. Tracks well.

Other reviews on this yak have commented on the hatch seals but I haven't had any problems. A quick push on the lid edges appears to snap them into place but it does take a double check to ensure good seal.

Gets up to speed ok, but wouldn't win any races.

Its comfortable fit also translates to somewhat high profile so some weathercock, not significant.

Price Paid: $1,050
