My wife and I (retired), own 3 Pungo 140's and one Pungo 120 which is my fishing yak. Our grandgirls love the yaks and are quite skilled in their operation. Over the 5 years we have had Pungos, we have had an 83 year old 'senior' take his first solo, ON NEW YEARS DAY in Wisconsin, (cooling lake for a large power plant), and a 76 year old woman, in the summer who went over 4-5 miles on her first trip. We love all our Pungos & have encouraged over 10 other people to buy one. They love them also.
HINT: For installing the stern oval hatch cover, clean the cover and the plastic and spray a small amount of 303 on each & spread it around with your fingers. The cover goes on with a snap.
We can't find anything wrong with all 4 Pungo's. In the bow, we use 3 waterproof bags, each with a different colored 1/8" rope attached. Food is in one bag, essentials, (sun screen, tp etc. another and the third has a waterproof plastic case with cell phone, camera, GPS, compass etc. When we want something pull in that cord--when finished, push it back with the paddle or your foot.
Clothes, and other (dry) equipment goes in the rear bulkhead, and a 6 pack cooler goes behind the seat. Wilderness Systems now has a plastic unit called a "DASHBOARD" which fastens like a small spray skirt right in front of the operator. It is new this year, 07, and is a magnificent for fishing or where ever you need a rigid support.
We use a Dirty Dave anchor trolly to anchor by either the bow or stern.
The Pungo is a 10+ in our opinions.
