Went on a rainy Friday to pick up my new Pungo 140 in Mango. Thanks to the crew at Trailhead for helping with my shopping.
I decided on the Pungo after lots of consideration. I wanted something longer, with more glide and cargo that my Juntos. I also wanted a sit-inside to stretch my paddling season more into the spring and fall when the water is cold. With the sit-on-top I was always pumping a little bit of water through the scuppers and it would make it very cold as the river cooled off. I tried sitting in a number of boats over the winter and the Pungo offered the best combination of comfortable access, speed and cargo. Once the current weather improves (it is snowing, in mid-May) I’m going to take it for its first test drive.
