Try this.... get a pool float blow it up a little and stuff up in front of your feet
if you go over you can pull it out and sit on it while bailing out the yak
it's a cheap fix

Birdman-where did you get the pungos? I'm in the market for one-a 12' used/demo model or a new 14'er.

Thanks.

Lee

I have airbags in the bow and stern and it makes a big difference.Also, lifting the end of the boat as you turn it upright does get rid of a lot of the water.Best bet is to swim to shore or shallow water where you can right the boat without having to tread water or fight breakers.I have practiced reentry many times but the yak is so stable and I'm probably even overcautious that i doubt I"ll ever have to use it.

My appologies, the hull designs have not changed muchfor the 12. I meant the difference between the 12 and the newer 14. I used to have a 12 but this summer I tried Ray's 14. A fast boat for its size, I was pleasantly surprised.

I heard one of the major design differences between the old "Dick's" and new 12 versions was the Phase 3 seat.

Hulls are much different .The back is totally different.The old was flat almost rudder like the new ones are more square.

As far as righting a swamped Pungo it stinks.I had one .

SOT you just climb back on and keep fishing
