I bought a Pungo 140 for Father's Day as a gift to myself. I searched for a kayak that I could fit in and the Pungo was absolutely perfect. I am 6' 7" and was thoroughly impressed with the size of the cockpit and the range to which the foot pedals can be set. No modifications were needed. I like the console as an option because it provides a little water shed while making many items easily accessible. A proper fitting skirt for wetter conditions was easy to come by and now I paddle in comfort week after week. Made for a big man but still a very sleek craft.
