Any idea if any of those PA12's made it on the truck for the Florida dealers? Stopped by my dealer today and there seems to be some confusion. They were under the impression that PA12's won't start showing up for another 30-60 days (even the initial 2's)


We don't have them in Sacramento yet either. Although the kid on the phone sounded like he wouldn't be able to find much of anything.

Just picked mine up this afternoon at Dana Point Jet Ski and Kayak. It's just as amazing as I had hoped.

Nice! I'm in NH waiting for mine so I'm sure it's the last stop before Maine!

Sweet victory Journeyman! And welcome to the forums too! California certainly had an advantage to get the first photo up. Who's next?

Any of you guys waiting on here receive your PA12 yet? Snapper season started today and I'm so ready to retire my outback.

Nope, still waiting for my PA12 here in Florida. Put in the pre-order with a deposit back in mid April.

Talked to the manager of the local shop and he told me 30-60 days out is when he'll expect them in. I was a bit blown away by this since I saw the production photos back around May 15th or so and know that some dealers in California have gotten their 2 early last week.

Regardless, I certainly hope that I won't be waiting until mid June (or even mid July) for the initial 2 to arrive.

I'm in FL also gatorling. I can't believe it would take that long to get these boats to the panhandle. I have a deposit from mid April also one one of the initial 2. Hopefully soon.

Checked with a dealer here in Lafayette, La. He got an email today relaying a shipping order my PA's expected arrival is next week so said, we'll see. Needless to say, Im excited as the rest of you. Need to fish.

Awesome, sounds like the PA12's are slowly making their way to the southeast.

Looking forward to reading some others reviews, I thought that the initial run of 12's would have made their way around a little quicker.

I've been able to use my a few times now. Friday the 1st I was out at Dana Point, CA for about 8 hours. Fished inside the harbor for a while then went out into the wind for a couple of hours. The swell wasn't big but it was pretty rough out there and the PA 12 did great. Rarely any hull slap and completely stable. I had the seat in the lower position initially but I moved it up because I find it more comfortable and I didn't feel any less stable. I absolutely love fishing off this boat. I was out with a guy on an Ocean Kayak and he could hardly keep up with me and I was keeping a pretty slow cadence on the pedals.

Totals for the day

1 - 18" White Sea Bass
1 - Short Barracuda
3 - Sand Bass
2 - Yellow Fin Croakers
2 - Jacksmelt
2 - Mackerel
1 - Lizard Fish

No good pics of the boat but here's a fish

This is a dumb question but where do you store the fish you catch? For those who like to sometimes eat our catch? Do you need a seperate container or use a stringer?

Also, is this boat easy to load/unload by yourself? I would be looking for something to put on a rack on top of my Mazda, really trying to avoid a trailer...

Thanks
