A true Classic. I looked at the Pungo in '04, and went with a cheaper boat, that fell apart. After 6 years of ww and sea kayaking, I went back and bought a Pungo. Rigged it for fishing and this boat is fantastic. Fished out of a Tarpon for a couple of years which was nice during the Summer, but the Pungo is a year-round boat, year in and year out. Great tracking, seating and amenities, possibly the BEST boat ever made. imho
This boat rolls easily, tracks and maneuvers wonderfully, and speed is good. Sculling while lying back is a breeze. No leaks in the hatches, all deck-lines well thought out. Very comfortable seat, and thigh braces are adjustable, although mine fit perfect out of the box. The adjustable foot pegs are nice. Although as stated by an earlier poster, sometimes when you wet exit and try to re-enter and roll, the pegs will tend to slide out of position. There should be an easy fix for this.
Overall a very well made boat. I'd pick it again.
I love the classic Greenland lines, day hatch, and lots of storage. The skeg is the only way I was going to go, rudders seem to me like training wheels that you never take off. Although someday, if I live long enough, I might need that third leg to stand on. I installed a flush mount fishing rod holder just aft/portside and a paddle clip,(one with a bungy type port-side clipping device), so better to fish/photograph with. I am very pleased with this boat, and already have my eyes on the Gulfstream!
