Thumbs up Pungo

Desmobob,

I am 6'1, 225lbs and the new owner of a pungo this season. I find that it handles well and is very stable. I have used it about 6 times so far this season, mostly in estuary water.. so no surf or heavy waves. I have fished witha 9wt flyrod and a spiining rod. I was surprised how well it tracks given the wide beam. The best advantage of the Pungo is the new wilderness sytems adjustable seat. i find the seat very comfortable. Good luck in your search!!

I weigh about 250 and fishn out of an Old Town Loon 138. I use a 240 cm padlle and have a rudder installed. If you try real hard you can dump anything. Dumpimg a Loon takes some doing. The big cockpit makes getting in and out easy . but practice ia few times , These are all little boats and you can get killed in them. The ocean does not reward stupidity. I think the biggest danger is being hit by a bigger boat under power. Stay aware . Good fishing. ekg
