Needs a rudder for large bodies of water. Should be 16' long so you have storage for gear and lunch pails, etc. Paddle keeper for rear should be aft so you can reach it. Stable and fast for its size. Had 440 Lbs with two large guys no issues. Been in 4' waves no issues except needed rudder. Heavy but manageable once in water. If a 16' comes out I'm buying one, and selling this one. Bottom Line if you are not concerned about storage like we are, for we are needing picnic gear, dry bags, etc. Great choice!!

Top Question & Answer
Q: Interested in this kayak. Your site list the weight as 71 lbs. Wilderness manufacturer list weight as 88 lbs. Which is accurate?
A: I apologize for the miscommunication. The fully rigged weight (with seats, hatches and XL keepers footbrace system installed) will be 88 lbs.

Q: I am interested in buying the wilderness Tarpon 135 tandem kayak. I am 6'4" with long legs and want to know if I will fit comfortably in it. I was also looking at the Ocean Kayak Malibu XL. Which one would I fit more comfortably in and which is a better kayak?
A: Hey, thanks for the question! Both of these kayaks are around the same size in length, but the Tarpon has more of a load capacity than the Malibu XL.

Q: My wife and I are debating between this boat and the Ocean Kayak Malibu Two XL Angler Tandem. We like the features of this yak a little more, our only concern is the seating ability. Can you change the seating to a single person Kayak on this boat like the Ocean Kayak, or is it strictly tandem seating?
A: The Tarpon 135T has more comfortable seats but it does not allow to change the seats to a single-middle configuration like the Malibu 2XL
