Gary Carlson wrote a review of Perception Lanakai 12.5 Kayak on August 9, 2004
I ordered the Perception Lanakai 12.5 because of the free shipping from backcountry.com. It arrived 10 days later and after spending the weekend touring in it I am extremely happy with the kayak and the service from backcountry.
The kayak is well made with good attention to detail and it tracks well with only myself paddling from the back seat and my dog in the front (who won't paddle). I'm going to get scupper plugs for the back seat scuppers as water does enter the seat compartment.
Great kayak, great service.....what more can I say.
