All in all I'm very happy with the boat, I'd give a 4.5 star review (for the price) if it was an option. This boat has a great hull, lots of rigging and storage space, good weight capacity, good tracking, good price, and it's not too heavy (always a concern of mine). My minor complaints are: - The strap buckles on the seat are low quality and broke on my first overnight trip. Do yourself a favor and replace them with metal ones. - As you may have read elsewhere, the rod holders are useless - but I knew that going into the purchase. Strange that they did such a nice job with the boat and messed these up (they are much too wide and not conveniently placed). - Gear tracks are plastic, aluminum would have been stronger and marginally more expensive, easy fix tough. Pleasant surprises: -Good interior hull access in the rear through the small hull access area in the rear well. -Love the hard plastic cap on the rear underside of the hull (don't have to worry about dragging it as much and eating through the plastic) - Rear well is quite large, fit a RTIC 20 with room to spare - Decent amount of room under the seat when in high position (extra storage, I use it for my anchor rope) Also Austin Kayak's service was 2nd to none. Competitive price, fast delivery, excellent packaging, and even an in-person follow up call after I ordered. Bravo.

Have had my 12' Pescador out several times now in calm water and in wind and chop. The boat performed really well and I give it high marks for stability, tracking and ease of paddling. The fittings layout is very well thought out and I have added nothing other than a couple of tie-down eyes. Perfect fishing kayak for me and outperforms two others I have owned. Austin was very easy to work with and handled the shipping promptly and without any problems.

Q: Is the bow tankwell scuppered too? I'm looking for my next btb boat. I used the original Pescador 120 and did really well rigging it out. Also is the lid for the center console robust enough for a Scotty 241 mount with Scotty 257?
A: Yes, the tankwell is scuppered. A feelfree medium fish bag fits in it well. The center console lid is on the thin side and I would not count on it for anything heavy. I use mine for my FF.

Q: I have 2 questions. 1. What are the dimensions of the rear area? Wondering if a cooler that is 11.75" wide x 17.25" long will fit. 2. Any idea of average shipping time to eastern U.S?
A: The dimensions of the rear storage are is 18" at the widest point tapering down to 10" wide at the narrowest point, and 22" long from the widest point to the narrowest point, so it should fit. Depending where you are in the eastern U.S., it would be anywhere from 3-5 days to receive the kayak. Please let us know if you have any other questions!
