I'm sort of new paddler and I tried no less than 8 different boats on two demo days recently and found- hands down that the Wilderness Tsunami 125 was the most comfortable- at least for me. I did try the Tsunami 14 but couldn't quite get my knees in a comfortable position as that area is a bit shallower than the 125. The Phase 3 seat is truly the most comfortable seat I sat in.
In the running for my purchase was the Necky Manitou 13, Current Kestrel 14, and Boreal Ookpik 14. The Tsunami just fit me perfectly. I'm 5'8" @ 190 lbs. Great decking and I love the dry storage space. Tracks very well. I'm a lazy river, creek, small lake kind of paddler (so far), but looking forward to expanding my trips. I would definitely give the Tsunami 125 a thumbs up.
