I have a Pungo kayak that is 12 feet long and weighs about 45 pounds. As I get older and can rely less on my wife's help, I'm thinking of a smaller, lighter boat. Your Pelican Pursuit 80 Deluxe Kayak...


Bob, my first suggestion would be to look into a transport system such as Hully Rollers or the Hullivator to aid in getting your 'yak onto and off of your vehicle and then using a collapsible kayak dolly that should store neatly in a hatch (or behind your seat if you don't have hatches) to transport your boat to the water.

Also, you could try paddling with groups if there are any in your area. Not only is it safer to paddle with at least two other people (the rule is three: one to get in trouble, one to run for help, and one to point and laugh...or provide aid, whatever), but it's a lot easier to load and move boats using two or more people.

Failing that, I think I would look at a nice fiberglass or carbon fiber boat rather than downgrading to a Pelican Pursuit 80 since you sound like you're on the ocean/in big water. They can be a little pricey, but the used market tends to be rather brisk and good deals abound. Above all, if at all possible, try it before you buy it.

I've had my 2013 Ride 115 for a month and half now. I took it out on a small calm lake and paddled for about 1 1/2 hours. When I went to put it on my trailer, I couldn't lift it because of all the water...


My first thought would be to check the drain plug which is located toward the back of your hull and quite possibly at or below the water line. Past that, there's a leak somewhere and you should take it to the dealer as it should still be under warranty.

I have a very old Pungo. It recently slipped off the truck and drug for a short time on the pavement. It wore a small hole in the bow and took off about a 1 by 8 inch strip of bow covering. Would that be...


Plastic? Cheap and quick way would be to try to fill the hole -- small you said -- with good caulking and then stuff the inside of that end with a plug of something to support the seal. Duct tape on the outside to protect the seal.

Not sure what you mean about the bow covering.

New Pungo 140, rear bulhead behind seat is sealed with a flexible sealant with a tape. There are already splits and small holes through which water is already penetrating. Is it better to accept a new...


Brand new boat? Let them replace it, it's a manufacturing defect! The bulkhead probably was slightly too large or the sealant was poorly applied, either way you don't want the headache yourself. Wilderness systems and their dealers tend to be VERY reasonable with this type of problem.

If it were an older boat or one you had used extensively, I would recommend removing the old sealant and then laying down thick beads of a high quality silicone sealant such as Lexel on both sides of the bulkhead.

Water is entering into the stern hatch. The foam is not sealed to the kayak. I tried sealant bond and it did not work. What type of water glue can you suggest?


If it is dry, and you don't need to access it, about the best thing to use to seal it is silicone caulk. I paddle whitewater and that stuff is the bomb. There are some other glues (like the ones they use for foam pads), but they are extremely expensive. Tube of silicone 5 bucks. Also, in a pinch on the water, duct tape it.

1 week old pungo 100 and the stern bulkhead is seperating


This seems to be a general problem with Wilderness Systems kayaks. I never have gotten my Tsunami 145's bulkheads to seal properly after a bit over a year.

Take it to the place you bought it and ask them to re-seal it for you. The down side: even if they do it for you under the warranty, it'll still take a week for the sealant to dry.

When can I paddle with kayak?


You can, but it's all about compromise ? and safety. Generally, the shorter the boat the easier it will turn (great for rivers and white water), but the slower you'll be getting from point A to point B. The longer the boat (most sea kayaks) the better it generally tracks and the faster and safer it travels through water.

Safe touring kayak


A boat designed for greater touring distances and a higher degree of safety would have a smaller cockpit, hatches and bulkheads. The smaller cockpit allows for contact with your knees for control. The hatches and bulkheads are designed to be, for the most part, air- and watertight. You can store gear (in dry bags) in these as well as have hundreds of pounds of positive buoyancy should your cockpit fill with water.
