The first set of Kayaks I owned were hand me downs from my parents. Both were Wilderness System Kayaks (one yellow and one red). I LOVED these kayaks and would probably still have them if it weren’t for Floyd and the flood of ’99! I’m not sure if they were stolen off my property or carried away in the floodwaters. But when I made it out to our land after the floodwaters receded, they were gone!
But I digress, this is about the kayaks…and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a sturdy, well-made kayak. These boats were used for many years before they disappeared and never presented any problems. I can’t even begin to tell you all the places I took them. But the most frequent would be Tar River, Pamlico Sound, and the waterways in and around Beaufort and Morehead City. It’s great for exercise and very calming if you like nature.
The seats, while not plush, were comfortable. There was plenty of storage room both in the front and behind you. One word of caution though. I would not consider them heavy, but it was a bit of a chore for me to heave them up on my roof alone...there are lighter weight kayaks out there:0)
