Wilderness Systems Tarpon 160i w/Rudder - Looks Brand New

Selling my Kayak due to minimum use. This boat looks practically brand new though I believe I purchased it brand new in 2007. Below are the factory specifics followed by improvements/modifications.

Length: 16' / 488 cm
Width: 28" / 71 cm
Max Capacity: 375 lbs. / 170 kg
Deck Height: 13.75" / 35 cm
Weight: 83 lbs. / 38kg
Cockpit Length: 52" / 132 cm
Cockpit Width: 20" / 51 cm
Color: Camo

This Kayak is fully loaded, turn key and was seldom used. I have made several improvements over the few years Ive had it and this boat is SWEET.

Other key features about this boat include:

CSS - Comfort Seating System - Very comfy with adj. backrest. Easy to spend all day on.
7' Aqua Bound Paddle included

Garmin 300C - Color Depthfinder - Transducer is easily removed if not in use.
6Gal livewell - Both livewell and Garmin run off a small, light motorcycle battery. Keeps a charge for both units to run all day. Both Livewell and battery can be removed from the boat in seconds

Anchor Trolley system
Large Rudder - Footpedals are adjustable for customized fit

3 Storage compartments -Small, Med, Large. Plenty of room for long voyages or lots of gear.
3 Rodholders - Two flushmount and one scotty's

All in all the boat tracks completely straight and is very fast, carries lots of gear, and is very comfortable. At 6'2", 200#, I can fish all day on this boat in comfort and plenty of stability. Not to mention the boat looks pretty much brand new that is HALF the cost of the same boat with outfitting brand new.

I also have a tall Yakima Rack for a pickup that includes the two uprights and crossbars along with a set of shark fins and hully rollers to secure the boat. Attached to the crossbars are custom rod holders that will allow you to carry several rods stored below the bars without taking up bed space.

$950 for the boat $1200 for rack and boat, Located in St Simons Island, GA, but I am Keys bound at the end of the month and willing to negotiate delivery along I-95

PM or call Henry, lots of additional pics
