Tampa Bay paddler wrote a review of Perception Lanakai 12.5 Kayak on January 3, 2006
My parents decided to buy me a kayak for Christmas this year. I chose the Perception Lanakai 12.5, and I just took it out this past weekend on some bays in the Tampa Bay area. It performed great. I went alone one day and with a friend the next, and both days were fantastic. Its totally stable and quick on the water. Only drawback is that it's a little heavy, esp. for one female paddler. But overall, an excellent performer. Plus, I got it on sale, no tax, free shippingit doesn't get any better than that! Thank you!!!
