Tomorrow, I will be purchasing a PA12. ... My first yak. I currently have a Sea Eagle FPB 285 inflatable with a Torqeedo 1003 outboard. I live in Hillsborough, NJ and do a great deal of fishing in Round Valley, Spruce Run and Merrill Creek. The sea eagle is great but I need more room. I'm buying my 12 from Bob's Canoes & Kayaks (Sunset Sailboats) in Lake Hopatcong, NJ. I guess I'll have to fish that lake too!
I've been toying with the idea of a PA12 for a couple of years and am making it happen. I'm retired and today I read every post in the first 10 pages of this PA forum!! Yeah, that's a lot of reading along with the hours of YouTube over the last few months..... The information from both sources is incredible and valuable and having a Hobie rep lurking in the background in the forum shows Hobie's firm interest in quality customer service.
Anyway, I have no questions...... Yet, but if I do, I'm confident that this forum is the place to be.
I'll be getting the H- bar, anchor trolley, and maybe the Live Well with the purchase. I have a Lowrance Elite 5 DSI, and two adjustable Scotty rod holders to transfer/mount from my Sea Eagle, so that should keep me busy for a few minutes. But I just noticed it's after 1 AM..... I've got a big day tomorrow.... G'nite for now, and thanks for the great info.
