  I had the Tarpon 160

and while it's a very good SOT, in big water it was a pain as it pearled way too much and was a very wet ride with it's nose buried in a wave. It's noted to be a fast paddler, but there are equally or faster touring kayaks at shorter lengths that out perform the 160. The Necky 140 ( I have the 13') is faster, Cobra Tourer at 15' is faster, won't pearl, and easier to turn in fast rivers. Of course the Kaskazi Dorado is the ultimate SOT performer!
