Just placed an order for a Cayuga 146 from Old Town. I did a lot of comparison shopping and demoing. Today, I demo'd a Wilderness Tsunami 145, Perception Carolina 14.5, and the Old Town Cayuga 146. The Perception was fast and straight, but relatively unstable in moderately choppy waters. The cockpit was nothing to speak of. The Wilderness was easy to paddle, but with each stroke I could see the bow shift from side to side and it wasn't quite as fast. The Old Town had it all. Good speed, straight, stable and great cockpit ... theigh pads, seat are very comfortable. It also has a "glove compartment" just in front of the cockpit ... very convenient. Place the order today. Can't wait to get it!!
