How to plug scupper holes in kayak?

I am not sure what you mean, or why. Scuppers are designed to drain water from places you do not want it. On a sit-on-top like that they are designed so that water drains out of the cockpit where you are sitting. If you plug them, then the water that does get in will not drain out and you will have to bail/sponge it out or sit in the water.

How can I determine why my is my Hurricane Phoenix 120 is leaking?

Inside the scupper holes which can't really be inspected, leaks can be a serious problem. some owner tie a rope thru the scupper holes to attach to a rack or other reason, but when the walls inside the scupper holes 'crack' there's no way to tell. Stand the kayak on end and fill with water. Look for leaks that way, by filling the whole tamale with water and inspect for water leaking out. Probably time to shop for a new one!

Where can i find Kayak owners manual

It probably exists on the manufacturer's or supplier's website. On the Ocean Kayak site, there are some videos that explain kayaking.

Drain plug location

The BEST place to install the drain plug is in the bow of the boat on top, in front of the carry handle. Then you can drain it by flipping it over and lifting the stern in the air. We did this with my son's Vapor 10 and it worked very well.

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.

Plastic piece on back of seat busted looking where to find replacement its for a dirigo 120

I would say the best thing to do would remove the screws/bolts/hardware
plug the hole with whatever you took out. and buy a new seat with a higher back.
you may need to add those u shaped deck cleats but thats not a big deal

I have a Pelican Apex 130T that I cinched down too hard on my roof rack. It pushed in the bottom underneath the backseat and deformed it. How do I get it back out and get a normal looking bottom of this...

This can be difficult. If it was my boat I would try:
  1. If bottom flat, lay on flat floor like garage or deck. If not flat, then work on lawn.
  2. Let the sun (and maybe a bit of extra heat, but not much) warm the bottom so it is a bit pliable.
  3. Apply force to put the bottom back into shape. If not a flat bottom, then some care is required. This is usually done with internal blocks of wood or foam to hold the hull in its proper shape. In more extreme cases you can inflate an air bag in there to maintain pressure over a larger area. (BE VERY CAREFUL if you use an inner tube--it can burst your boat!)
  4. Once it is back to about the shape you want, leave it in that position for a few days, and to cool down.
  5. With any luck, that will reverse most of the dent. If you don't get it all the first time, you might want to try again. In fact, I suppose it might be better to work on it twice rather than do too much in one go. I really am not sure on that part.
  6. With these poly boats, you may never get them back to original shape, but they will almost always accept some re-bending to get back to a more useable shape.
