I was just wondering if the Tarpon 120 was slow? Is the Ocean Kayak Trident 13 faster? Thanks!
I had a Tarpon 120…
…and I think it’s a barge. But define “fast”. It’s all relative. What is your intended use? If recreational puttering around is your game, then any boat is fine. If you need to cover some distance, then you need efficiency. Once I tried truly efficient kayaks and canoes, I gave up on SOTs, most are very slow.
Both are slow
The Tarpon 160 is reasonably able to keep up with a group on a club paddle. The Pungo is pretty fast as well. But none of them are very fast.
