Bill M.wrote a review of Perception Eclipse 17.0 Airalite Kayak w/ Rudder on July 8, 2006
I own a Perception Senoma 13.5 aralite, great mid size boat for the river, and it has held up extremely well for a couple of seasons. Wanting to venture out onto the bay I needed something a bit more capable. I paddled numerous boats in the 17' $2K to $3K range. At the end of the day the nod went to the Eclipse. All comparable were about $1K more with no proportional increase in efficiency.
