I just bought another Pungo 140 (new), Wilderness has changed the hatches, and that's a good thing. They are much better than the rubber hatches that were on the Pungo. I am a river paddler, backwater and swamps. There's not a better boat for these applications.
I have 2 - 140 Pungo's, 1-Duralite 120 Pungo, two Prion yaks and a Hurricane 16-5. I use them all but I use the Pungo most, it's fast, stable and I'm able to pack a lot of camp gear in it. Plus the large cockpit is a big plus, pardon the pun. Now throw in the phase 3 seat and you have a rec boat that can't be beat. I have modified a canopy top to fit on top and that works great for sun or rain. The new boat rates a 10, only because I can't rate it any higher.
