  I like my tsunami
  Posted by: pirateoverforty on Apr-16-13 9:32 PM (EST)
 

But comparing the 120 and the 125 the extra 6" in length is not really the difference. Tsunamis that end in a 5 have a higher volume, slightly lartger cockpit and more height to the deck. You should be a little snug in your boat so if you fit the 120 the 125 should be too large to fit properly. Based on your height weight I would think you do not need the high volumne boat. If you go to a dealer and sit in them you will immediately see the difference I am talking about. My wife paddles a tsunami 140 and I paddle a 145.
A boat that is too large for you will be difficult to edge and difficult to roll. The extra height, without having enough butt to anchor it in the water will act like a sail in the wind and cause tracking issues.
