I bought the new updated Tarpon 120 in 2021. The new sit on top has a lower weight capacity than the older Tarpon 120. I weigh 245 lbs and a little water comes in the scuppers of the new Tarpon 120. That is not the case with the older Tarpon 120 where I ride dry even though boat boats have a mfg. weight limit of 350lbs. The cover on the back well is a joke and will easily fly off when the boat is in transport and we will be buying bungee to make it like the older Tarpon 120.. The dry box and magnetic cup holder are nice features. The new Tarpon is an inch wider than the old Tarpon, I was expecting a higher weight limit. Very comfortable seat, tracks well.
We did 3 days of Kayaking Lake Wisconsin and love the boat. I am a big guy 6' 290lbs. and the boat handles wonderful. I have the lower sitting mesh adjustable seat that you can slide the seat forward or back to trim out the weight and handling. Yes the boat is heavy but not a problem loading on a roof rack with 2 people. I bought the boat about 4 months ago and it was delivered about 2 months ago. Unfortunately the factory rep. mentioned it may not be made much longer. I just checked out the Wilderness website and none of the Rides appear there anymore. A big loss for the big guy. The Ride 115 and 135 were great boats for the big boys, hopefully they are just making some model changes for 2020. Time will tell. Great boat for lakes and wide rivers. If you are thinking about buying one, do it fast as supplies are low and soon no more.
