Great Boat. Customer Service has been helpful when called. I have recommended to friends.
Have used my seaeagle 385fta numerous times now and love how stable it is on the water. There is lots of floor space for gear when fishing or an extra passenger or two. The boat boat paddles easy and tracks good when calm. A bit harder to control with a wind on a lake but that is to be expected with how much of the boat is on top of the water. Easy to inflate or deflate. All the pieces do take up a fair bit of room but can still fit in the back of any car or SUV. The weight is ok for me but a little to heavy for my wife or daughter to lift and carry for any distance. The only things that could be better is if it was a bit lighter and cost less. Over all I am very pleased with this inflatable kayak and would recommend it to anyone.
I love my new 385fta .I bought it late fall and was able to enjoy the fall foliage here in N.J. . I gave up my traditional hard sit inside kayak for my new Inflatable for a couple of reasons. I am 6'1 240 lbs. My sit in was fine if I just wanted to paddle. Then I started fishing in it and it was tight. Years back I owned a Sea Eagle SE9 till my nephew took it over. Then one day I was starting to look for a new fishing/recreational kayak . The hard bodied ones were way to heavy for me to transport without a trailer. . Then I receive in the mail a Sea Eagle catalog. To make this long story shorter I purchased the 385fta. It is so comfortable glides through the water. Mainly lakes though I had it in the bay on calm days for fishing no problems. I can move around comfortably and safety. Throw my legs in the water. It is super stable. I love it. I can deflate it for long trips,our use my Hullavator for short trips. It is light enough to carry to shore withoutbreaking your back. Out of text. Or I would say more !
This kayak is awesome, I like to fish and my wife likes to get outside on the water and exercise so she paddles in back and I fish from the front, a match made in heaven! The 385fta fits in the trunk of our Honda Civic and sets up very quickly. The low profile, front keel and skeg make it easy to paddle and control in fast current and in windy conditions. It is so stable we have never felt unsafe whenever we were out on the water even with whitecaps coming over the bow. We put boat cushions under the seats to raise them up a few inches and it is very comfortable sitting for long periods. I added some rod holders in front and when going out solo I can move out of my seat to get to them and not feel like the boat will tip. The warranty and customer service are excellent! The crocodile padding started to delaminate and after sending in some pictures, Sea Eagle sent out a replacement before requiring us to return the old one both at no charge so we did not have to miss any time on the water!
