  Pungo 120

It is the fastest 12 foot boat I've paddled. At 250 pounds I found it took more water than two people in a standard canoe. So if you a paddling water under 6 inches a lot, then it is a bad choice. Also the v bottom may hang on shallow rocks in rivers and cause you to capsize.

It is a great boat for touring with a capacity of over 300 pounds. It is stable and fast for lakes and bays. But it is not really a kayak in the sense that you must travel more like a canoe. Don't go far from shore when it is rough or cold as recovery from capsize is very very difficult compared to a kayak.

I put a float bag in the front and back of mine and an electric pump so it was set up like a white water canoe and took it many places it was not menat to go. It really does not surf well. :)
