Forget about squeezing into another tiny boat, where the only thing you can think about is how you’re going to get back out. The Wilderness Systems 2018 Pungo 140 Kayak is made with the large-statured paddler in mind. As the longest in the Pungo series, this 14-footer offers on-the-water stability, a spacious cockpit, and abundant room for storage.Because of its sharp chines and bellowed sides, the Pungo 140 tracks like a bloodhound through miles of glassy lakes and a river’s flatwater. A removable console in the front of cockpit comes with built-in cup (or beer) holders and a latching day hatch (for your koozie). If you’re floating to camp for a couple nights, the covered bow and stern hatches keep your gear dry and secure. The supportive seating system adjusts in several dimensions with only a tug or two, while the sliding foot brace system moves to fit your height. Plus, thigh and knee pads protect your legs from rubbing against the sides during an all-day cruise.
