This is my brides new addition to her fleet. She paddled the Jackson Ibis for 2 years before the Tupelo came to the assembly line. An already fast and stable boat, the addition of gear tracks before and behind the seat really opens the possibilities for her to fish. Now she can carry 2 rods (or more) and have them out of the way while she paddles. Also the super sized hatch is a great place to store jackets or a shore lunch while we are out on the water. She was tickled with her choice of a custom color as well.
