  What the heck did I buy?

Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and cant wait to read up on everything and anything kayaking related. But one big question. What the heck did I buy? I can't find any information on this kayak at all. I purchased it from craigslist and tried doing research beforehand but can't find any model information on it (even from the paddling.net database). It's a pelican elite series kayak but does anyone know the model? I tried comparing pictures but wasn't able to find anything. Here it is as I brought it home ten minutes ago. I got a really good deal on it. http://i.imgur.com/VPnnRWm.jpg

  Don't know, but is that your Fox?

Nice to have a car with rain gutters. I had a Dasher wagon, which is like a Fox with four doors.
 
 
  No idea

nor any idea why a day hatch seems to be right in front of the cockpit..it must extend below deck. Maybe a cup holder.

Pelicans always must have cup holders.

It might help us play the guessing game if we knew how long and wide it was.
 
 
  More info

Hey sorry about the lack of info. It's 14feet long and I measured about 26" wide. and yup, that's my fox. I originally got it as a beater but fell in love with it. Just done a lot of maintenance with it, got a new paint job. Im surprised you knew it just from looking.They're a fairly rare car nowadays. Dasher with the round headlights are a great looking car.
 
 
  Nice car

Might it be a Pelican Trek 140

(though this is missing the day hatch)
later renamed the Pelican Pursuit 140 it seems

  Definitely a Pursuit 140

I agree. It's a Pelican Pursuit 140 DLX.
