To keep me from adding to my fleet of kayaks the wife has decreed that I can not buy another kayak until I find a purple Wilderness System Tarpon for her. She was under the impression that a purple color was not made.
So is it purple or just trick of the light?
I've been keeping the page up on the computer and every time she walks by I point at it and say "purple"

I'd guess a shade of blue|

Flourescent or other lighting can cause a color shift, and, a camera's own white balance setting can be off. I could see that being either sky blue, darker blue. Also, that boat is more than 2 years old, based on the seat style. I think 2010 may have been the changeover year, but not certain, since I'm not a Tarpon guy.

A couple of years ago, WS was targeting the female market. They had various models; with stylish writing and special colors, to attract female buyers. One of the colors offered was periwinkle. It was a bluish/purplish tint. It has been discontinued.

I would agree that it is a light blue color but on my screen it comes up as a light purple. I knew that a purple wasn't offered by WS so I figured it was a different color but it is fun to nag the wife.
