Never heard of a "huntsman". I actually got my pamlico 140 because of its style. I was looking for a poly touring kayak, and the Pamlico 140 was the nicest looking one I saw. For some reason, The boat stood out in the store, It was just so stylish, and at that moment, I knew I had to have it. This store was packed with kayaks. And I looked at the whole inventory, then I looked at the other retailers, And I chose the Pamlico 140. I thought it was the nicest kayak ever, And I still do. Has anyone here ever seen one in real life or paddled one??
