I bought a near new, 2021…
I bought a near new, 2021 mango Salty last fall and pedaled it several times in Grand Lake St. Marys, OH. It was very stable and really fun. After returning from Florida this spring, I have taken it out many times. It is a very fast boat, as I have a Hobie Outback in FL and the Salty is faster. My neighbor wanted to try the Salty out in some chop, so I took my Wilderness Tsunami 145 out with him. We went for an hour and then turned back. He set a pace and paddling, I could not keep up, about 3-3.5 mph. He wasn't really pushing it, but I paddled hard and he left me. Took my wife out and same results. So, last week I went to Strictly Sail in Cinti, OH and bought a teal, second Salty. I had no budget, but for boat riding and fun, the Salty delivers. Tracks perfectly and the bow rides VERY high. Even with continuous pontoon wakes hitting me, this boat is steady and safe. It is so nice to pedal along and take a sip of coffee. We use a 1" pad for the seat back, but the seat bottom is good for 2-3 hours. With a pedal boat, you kind of get in a rhythm and just go. I haven't fished out of it, but it's plenty stable. I can load it solo from truck bed to launch with wheel assist. I'm 65, 6', 190#. Very fun boat and excellent value.
