I've had my Tarpon 100 for a year now with about 3 trips a month under my belt. Mostly in South Baldwin county Rivers and Mobile Bay in Alabama, but also includes 3 trips to the Gulf of Mexico. Handled great in the surf, cut through the incoming waves. Great for a 10 footer I thought. Very stable and durable. I got the angler package, but have also added a fish finder, lights, anchor system and decaled it out a bit. I always used to canoe in Canada, but I am Hooked on My Tarpon now. Highly recommended.
