Review - Pescador Pilot 12First time out in the Pescador Pilot. I Wanted to do a review since I have not seen anyone else do a consumer review of this kayak. Overall a great kayak for the money. I was able to get it going 5 knots with just minimal effort so I think this will up my range quite a bit.

Pilot 12 ReviewPERCEPTION PESCADOR PILOT 12
Well there are plenty of video’s on what the Pilot has got and where it all is. Plenty with smooth water testing as well.
Well we took 2 Pilots out over the weekend and put them through an open water run. The weather gods were smiling but I personally think this Pilots 12 would handle rougher weather conditions with ease.
Here is the review
Weight carrying: I well and truly loaded my Pilot up and it carried it well. Would manage a big fish catch to bring back to shore
Stability: I managed to stand fairly easy in the Pilot 12 even with a bit of swell. Plenty of clear flat foot area to place your feet. You can cast or sight fish very easily without too much worry of going over. The Pilot is also fairly well balanced in the sitting position and can ride the swell or bow waves very well. Almost to a point you could ski along the bow waves a bit.
Steering: This was reasonable and like most kayaks with a rudder need a little forward motion to start kicking in. But once moving will turn on a dime. But having the set and forget positioning worked well. Especially for the fishing and cruising mode. Was able to pedal and rig the lines and the Pilot went fairly in the direction it was given.
Pedal drive: This very well surprised me. Within one rotation of the pedals you are off and racing. The propeller well and truly moves a large amount of water for its size. Can handle at a steady pace to cruise around at a speed between 4 to 6kph with ease. ( well and truly keeping up with the upper market brand with ease) And really no real pressure to maintain the speed. The option of having the reverse works real well. You spot a lump. Just one or two back pedals and you are stopped. A few more and you are reversing. Amazed how much water boil there is when you do hit the reverse pedal action. Also very good for landing at the boat ramp when waiting for room on the ramp.
Storage: There is only one hatch on this yak. And at the back and only really for internal access at the rear. But in turn inside the yak does stay dry. But it does have a large rear storage area that I was able to fit a 60ltr tub in very easily. And still had a bit of room. Then there is the front storage area which again you can store a fair bit in. Then there is under the seat strap storage for the tackle containers. And the side tackle container storage as well. So plenty of room to store your gear. In addition there are 2 compartments on the front which surprised me stayed dry. I store my battery and cables in one. And easy access tackle bits in the other.
Sounder install: The Pilot 12 has screws already under in the transducer install point. As long as your transducer comes with the boat mount it will fit it. So no specific brand transducer required. And the cables for the transducer and sounder also have an already grooved access point in to the battery area. And the rails installed will handle your sounder.
Rod holders: These are probably the only real sad point. But they have been raised with the manufacturer and as we speak are being rectified. Those with a Pilot 12 already will receive the new upgrade. But when done it will hold 4 rods just behind the seat.
Seat: The seat is a great bonus as you are comfy and stay dry. And can would after long days out fishing. Its adjustable and in position as well as in the reclining position.
Hull: The hull is very solid and durable. And looks it will handle a bit of rough stuff. But again looking after the Pilot 12 will again last you longer.
Overall this Pilot 12 at the affordable price being sold in the market is a great kayak for those wanting to start yakking in a pedal kayak. But on a budget. The best part it really is a blank canvas for you to set this kayak up the way it suits you. Without breaking the budget.
So it could be a game changer this kayak to allow those wanting a pedal kayak to own one that is truly made to last. Not a cheap import that will break when bumped.
Even though it is still new in the market the manufacturer is listening to reasonable constructive comments and as PaddleSport MegaStore is the point of contact they will also carry spares right here in Australia and especially WA. So no long waiting lists or times for parts or accessories.
Hope you enjoy the video of it in the open water and cruising around. For more on what you get just look up other video’s as this is really just a short video of it in open water use.
