Rated 1 out of 5 by from My attempt to buy this boat ended in failure. My new Pungo 140 arrived defective - the keel is bent by several degrees near the stern. The result is that it takes at least four right strokes for every one left stroke to go in a straight line. If you paddle normally, the boat will make a U-turn. No amount of adjusting my sitting position or creative ballasting with gym weights would fix the issue. I returned the boat to the retailer. Upon inspection, they immediately agreed that there was cause for replacement. I waited two weeks. They got another new Pungo 140, and it had a *worse* keel deflection, and in addition also had hull denting at the fore and aft compartment bulkheads. We are moving backwards because the new boat is worse. I rejected the second boat without even taking it out of the store. To be clear, the sales staff agreed with me immediately that the boats are defective. So far my experience could be classified as "total disaster". One very frustrating trip on a boat with a mind of it's own, and then a disheartening replacement with a worse example. I don't have a boat, and the season is almost done. Wilderness Systems makes my favorite kayaks, and I love the Pungo 140. But somehow, somewhere, we do have a quality control issue here. Of all the things a boat builder must do, first *the keel must be dead straight*, and second *the hull must be symmetric and smooth*. If those two are not done correctly, no amount of cool hatch covers, cargo bungies, or "Kayak Konsoles" are going to fix it. I'm still working with my retailer (they have been great) and have faith that they will come through, but for now my 2016 season appears to be at an end. Based on my experience, I can not recommend this boat to a friend.

Why is there only one color available in the Pungo 140, mango? I see the Wilderness Systems website shows more. I would like to order the galaxy, midnight or sonar color. Thanks,

Does the removable console on the Wilderness Systems Pungo kayaks fit other kayaks? I like the console idea but am interested in the Wilderness Systems Tsunami 125 or the Perception Carolina 12. If so, are they for sale separately?

Asked by: Sharon
​The Kayak Konsoles are only compatible with the Pungo Models.
