These are awesome kayaks!! I was fortunate to get my Caribbean 12 when it still included the turtle top cover for the stern. Chris at The Kayak Fishing Store, then in N. Wildwood, now in Green Creek NJ has provided us with great support and assistance with the purchase of these kayaks from him. He is an excellent source of knowledge and experience, and a super nice guy. His shop is wonderful--and a great place to connect with other kayakers.
