Do you mean a Pungo? http://www.wildernesssystems.com/product/index/products/recreational/recreational_pungo/pungo_120_recreational/

Pungo's are extremely popular recreational kayaks. They are fine if you just want to do very laid back kayaking in nice mellow lakes or streams on nice weather days. I know plenty of people who that is the limit of their kayaking and are very happy with their Pungo. If you can afford and handle the additional length, the Pungo 140 would be a better choice as you will get better speed, tracking, and storage with the longer boat. The Pungo still will be a bit slower then a touring kayak and nothing you want to take into any type of open water.

But if you get into kayaking and want a better performing kayak then you want to look at touring kayaks at least 14 feet, that are narrower, have smaller cockpits (the Pungo is huge), and with dual bulkheads.
