Solid Performer

?Would you purchase the Wilderness Systems Tarpon 140 again? Yes
?What do you like about the Wilderness Systems Tarpon 140? Just about everything, especially the seat and hatches, dry as a bone.
?What do you dislike and why? One minor detail. The cockpit drains well but water collects in the side storage pockets. It would be perfect if some small passages were designed into them so they would drain into the cockpit which in turn would drain out the scuppers. This would prevent my pliers and such from sitting in salt water.
?Do you recommend the Wilderness Systems Tarpon 140 to others? Yes, every chance I get.
My Tarpon 140 is the bomb! It's stable and handles well.
It stays incredibly dry below due to the Orbix hatches. Also the rudder cable housings drain into the cockpit and not below deck.
I get a lot of complements from Sea Kayakers as well as Kayak Fishermen when they say hey!
