The question says 12', and I think Dancers are 13'. Maybe Corsica? It's unusual to have "Perception" written in that position, they usually have the model name there. That might be a clue to the age.

The first ww kayak by Perception was bought by me from a now-defunct shop in North Bay Ontario. Indeed, it was about 12 feet, it was the Eclipse. Heavy on rocker, it was a pain on long flatwater to the next drop. It would surf on most anything. The Dancer came some years later, and I knew it was a hit in seconds after hitting the seat, that it would be a hit. Wow!

Dancer Pro featured in the 2008 UK catalogue with decals there. They were 11' 7".
