For sale is a Perception Pescador Pilot 12 kayak. The pilot is the model with the pedal drive system. I got this brand new one season ago and put a batch of small extras on it to set it up for fishing. A description of the boat with specs is below (from online site). The boat is advertised to be stable enough to stand and fish in... I was able to do it but prefer sitting. The seat is very comfortable and with open concept I was able to spend a few hours on water and be very comfortable. Has a "scupper hole" cut out for a fish finder transducer and a couple other clever things with it's design. The pedal drive folds back into the boat for regular paddling and landing.
Only reason for selling (despite dreaming about getting this boat) is that I've only used it a handful of times and realize that my family would use a motor boat more. It's in great shape. The pedal drive is an awesome feature for extended time on water. My paddle stayed stowed except for launching/landing (propeller unit needs about 18" of water). Like pedaling a reclined bike, steering with hand controlled rudder system as you go. It weighs 75# so a small trailer works best for transport/launching.
Extras that I've added - anchor trolley and a anchor tie off, multiple Scotty rail mount sections, custom milk crate/rod holder that fits in rear area.
