I have been asking for the same question in here and facebook, but no respond except Tyler Hicks in Brewster did offer this request. So I will go there in April or just bite the bullet and order one.
Right on, I'm surprised we don't have a big paddle sport shop around. It's Hobie or nothing in this area. Looks like lead times are getting better from Old Town.

I've had the same issue. There seems to be no place around western WA that carries Old Town kayaks.  It's really shocking since they seem to be so popular.  I've been back and forth with Old Town via email about this, but their answer is to use the online dealer locator.....not helpful as I've tried to contact them all to no avail.  Still shocked they don't have a local dealer in this area.  They're missing out on a  good market.

So I checked with American Outdoors in Tacoma, awesome up and coming kayak shop. They are an Old Town, Nucanoe, and Bonifide dealer. Unfortunately inventory is zero. They still had an Old Town Sportsman 120 PDL for me to look at in person but it was sold. Lead times are 6 to 8 weeks, and that's if you can get one. Bonifide SS127 and 117 look awesome but I'm going to stay with pedal power. Looks like I need to stay on my Radar and its shitty pedal system for the for the immediate future.
