Wilderness Systems Pungo120

Postby Novice » Sun Aug 12, 2012 12:14 am

I picked up my new Pungo120 kayak from Adventure Outlet down on the Gold Coast today and promptly took it for a shakedown hitout over at Hinze.

For those interested , here are the specs :

Weight(kg):22
Width(cm):74
Length(cm):366
Capacity (kg):147

It comes with a few features aswell:

• Phase 3 Outfitting
• Knee Pad with Inner/Outer Cockpit Brace Options
• Slidelock Footbrace System
• Oval Orbix Stern Hatch
• Deck Rigging
• Comfort Carry Handles
• Stern Bulkhead
• Kayak Konsole

With it being longer than my Tarpon100's, I had to find room for it on the roof.

The Pungo has a removable work station ( Wilderness Systems call it a Kayak Konsole).

Bought a nice paddle to go with the yak too.

Compared to the Tarpon100 , this yak easily slides through the water and tracks very straight. With it having such a pronounced keel, more effort is needed than with the Tarpon to make it turn quickly.But overall its a good trade off.

Just need to deck it out now . First up will be installing the KeelEzy( keel guard).

Cheers,
Dave.

Very well thought out setup Dave. I like the storage of the Pungo as well .
It will be interesting to see how the Keelezy lasts.
Thanks for the pictures.

Looks kinda similar to my X-press. Sits lower in the water though.
Lots of fun there.
Cheers
