Only one issue: the keel air valve is difficult to reach. I suggest an access flap in the bow cover or move the valve back. Also, the inflatable seats I bought should have the valves already installed. I have tried to get the ring on several times and have not been successful. Seems odd that it would be up to the customer to perform such a difficult part of the assembly of your product.
Thank you for the review and feedback Rand. We leave the valves off to avoid any damage during shipping and storage.
Here is a video that will help in any use or installation of your white valves:
The 385fta has performed well on several outings. No quality issues. I find that the rod holders on the rear are not very useful for the rear seating fisherman due to difficulty getting to the rods. Not a big deal but something mounted forward of the rear seat would be nice. Overall I am very satisfied and would recommend this particular boat and Sea Eagle in general.
Thank you for your review James. For further customization you can find many options on out Fishing Gear page
Great kayak all around. No complaints, very happy with the decision to buy it.
We have this and another like sized competitor to carry in our 5 th. wheel traveling. Both inflatable are in the same price range. We also own 2 SOT boats, we have had 8 different kayaks over the years. After using the inflatables, the Sea Eagle 385fta has proved to be the superior boat. This is due to less rocker and a lower profile which ensures it tracks well.Also the slightly deeper rudder keeps it on track. We also paddle w/ a 50 lb. active retriever and have been out together in 15 MPH winds w/o any fear of rolling. This is not true of the hard shell SOTs. Also the gator skin has prevented any leaks. I rate performance @ about 85% of my 15' SOT, this has better stability at the cost of speed. It is faster than expected , not bad at all..
