It's close to a year now that I went from the 16' Tarpon down to the 14'. The main reason to downsize was to get a bit more maneuverability in the Colorado River as well as some of the fishing situations I get myself into. The new seat design is a nice touch. There is a little lose of glide when paddling on the shorter boat but not enough to be an issue. Still plenty of below deck storage & the slightly larger tank well is a nice touch. In the bays & ship channels around Aransas Pass it fishes well, the bow pushing through the inevitable huge rolling wakes the ship traffic creates. Much easier to load on my truck rack. So all in all I am very pleased with the change from the longer boat. I do miss the slightly longer glide when traveling long distances of the longer boat but the many other positive benefits for my use of the shorter boat makes me happy. I always have a rudder on my boats, having been caught in some strong winds & nasty weather at the coast. Several buddies don't have rudders & to see them struggle against 25 - 35 mph gusting winds when caught in a blow when traveling at angles really illustrates the benefit of a rudder. So much wasted energy constantly correcting the direction of travel while I am easily maintaining my heading. If you're going to fish regardless of the weather this boat with a rudder make a great combo.

This is my first angling kayak and I am throughly pleased with it so far. The seat is it comes with is superior to all other kayaks I have seen and it can take some bumps and bruises. I use it mostly in the chesapeake bay and tidal rivers and have no problems with it, I just worry about my gear when there are white caps in the bay but the kayak can handle it. It is heavier than a lot of friends kayaks and is usually a two person job getting it on and off your car. I can get it on my car before I go out and then once I'm a couple hours of fishing in the sun I have issues getting it on my car by myself. I would have given it five stars but it leaks somewhere and water gets into the dry department. It's not a lot of water but enough to notice and it makes it a lot harder to but the kayak back on your car with that water in there. It's also hard to get the water out without a shot vac.

ACK Reply:

Most sit-on-tops will take on a bit of water, but not more than a cup or so under heavy chop. If this boat is taking on more than that, please contact us and we will trouble-shoot it with you.

Top Question & Answer
Q: How would you compare the Tarpon 14 and the Moken 14 on Fishability, Stability, Speed, Hull rigidity, and overall Quality ? Thanks, Keith
A: Hi, Thanks for the question. The Tarpon and Moken 14 foot models are both going to be nice boats! The Moken is going to be a slightly more stable boat and also going to track a little better in the water. I am a Tarpon Fan, and am slightly bias because i have paddled them for years. The Moken is going to be a great angling kayak and I think it is probably going to be a little more "heavy duty" The Tarpon has the Moken beat on weight by about 5 or 6 lbs. As for Fishability both boats are going to have the ability to add fishing accessories however the Moken might come slightly more outfitted and has a better price point. The fishing is up to you! Both boats will get you on the water. Hope this helps!
