An absolutely wonderful experience! I got so frustrated talking to sales people who only wanted to sell me what they still had in stock at the end of the season. I knew I wanted a Perception, so I called the factory and talked to the folks there. We decided the Carolina 12 would be a good choice for me, considering my height and weight, etc. They helped me find a yellow one at Austin, their dealer in Texas. Austin got it to me in Washington state in fewer than the expected 5 days, wrapped up securely, with no shipping fee and delivered right to my doorstep! The driver waited patiently while we unwrapped it and checked it out. The minute we launched that kayak and I got in, I just knew immediately it was a perfect choice. Wow. Huge thanks to Austin for helping me, and for choosing a first rate shipping company, and of course for manufacturing just the right kayak for me!! After talking with the reps at the Perception factory, I ordered the Carolina
Kayak is awesome! Fast and comfortable for bog and small rivers and lakes. Only bad part was the shipping...the plastic was cut up badly in spots on arrival.
