Technical Details

Product Description

Tired of looking through the used kayak classified sections looking for that perfect paddling partner' Others have come close but just don't seem to be able to fill your needs' Meet your new paddling soulmate, the Wilderness Systems Tsunami 145 Kayak. This sleek boat feeds your need for stability at high speeds, carries your cargo without complaint, and best of all, fits your slightly above-average frame perfectly. Though you can't marry a boat, you'll enjoy a long and fruitful union with this enchanting siren of the seas (or lakes or ponds). The Tsunami 145 is a mere 6 inches longer and a scant 0. 5 inches wider than the Tsunami 140, but otherwise it sports the same touring hull design and outfitting as the other Tsunami family members. Semi-rigid roto-molded polyethylene takes on a moderate V for the hull and works outward to multi-chined sides. Angles to the deck create walls to give your new boat initial and secondary stability that most 50-year marriages lack. Tweak the Phase 3 AirPro Tour seat for a finely tuned fit on every outing, and adjust the SlideLock foot brace system for the right bracing power. Three hatches with domed covers buoy your watercraft, in addition to swallowing enough gear for a week exploring a chain of lakes. Bungee deck rigging uses reflective static line to ensure that you can be seen on evening or early-morning tours. A paddle holder lets you go hands-free when those orcas are just begging to have their pictures taken.

I am 5' 11" 240 lbs. This matters because kayak fit is very personal. I was looking for a first decked kayak after paddling inflatables and SOTs for a few years, and there are a lot more kayaks made for skinny guys than big guys. I bought a Tsunami 145 as my first decked kayak and I'm glad I did.

The Tsunami 145 is often looked down upon by advanced paddlers, but if you are new to kayaking it is a great boat to start with. Why? It's STABLE. It's stable sitting in the water going nowhere, it's stable on edge, it's stable in swells. It is sized for big guys. It is not the fastest boat out there, but if you are used to paddling a SOT or an inflatable, it is superluminal. The first time I had it out on one of my favorite local reservoirs I could not believe how efficient it was compared to my tandem SOT.

Also great for photography because it is so stable.

It is also COMFORTABLE. The seat in the 145 might be the most comfortable kayak seat out there. It is the most comfortable one I've sat in, and I can paddle it for 10+ miles or so, 4+ hours, and still be OK. However, the seat back, though REALLY comfortable and adjustable, becomes a real pain once you start doing wet exits and reentries. It flops forward when you are trying to slither back in after a T-rescue or paddle-float reentry. I have the seat back of mine tied back with a bungee cord, but I have yet to test a re-entry in the water. You can swap out the seat back in the T145 for the backband that is used in the Tsunami 165, Tsunami 175, and Zephyrs, but the backband is NOWHERE NEAR as comfortable for paddling. HOWEVER, kayak rentry after a wet exit is much easier with the backband. You can just slide right over it. I have the backband kit and will be converting mine soon.

I purchased this boat from a local retailer, not Amazon. Mine came with a steering rudder system, which to me, makes this boat even that much better. Three compartments, the back two share the same space. I am impressed with the weight, or lack of it. I used to throw it on the top of my pick-up bed trailer when camping, then moved to the top of my roll bars on my Jeep Wrangler. Now, it rides on my Honda CR-V, atop of an inexpensive ($29.99) Foam & Straps carrier I purchased from a local retailer.

It tracks well, but with the rudder, using the included foot pegs, I can paddle left side, then right side in a steady rythum and trim my direction with my feet. Makes for an even upper-body workout and even though you're only traveling between 5-8 miles per hour, seems like you're doing much faster.

I've owned this for four years now and this will be the first year I move from Slow rivers and lakes to Monterey Bay to get a bit closer to the sealions and otters.

I'm a big guy, currently 6'-0" at 260 lbs., gaining 40 over the past few years. I still fit inside with no problem, but getting out in deeper water has proved difficult without getting soaked. I've never rolled it, nor do I have a skirt to do so. So, if it tips over it will swamp.

I am happy with the contruction of this kayak, and it has held it's shape very well. I hang this in my garage from the rafters with a very thick, soft rope, wrapped around the hull at the front and back, in an upright position. When I carry it on my car, I carry it upright and only use tension straps across the top, in front and behind the cockpit. I do not tie down the front or back to the car like I used to do, because when I would arive, I would notice a slight bend in the boat.
