I absolutely love my boat. The stability of it is awesome. The stow ability is exactly what I needed. Unfortunately I just lost the boat when our motorcycle caught on fire and it was close by. I will be ordering another one hopefully soon.
I love this kayak, I took it on a 2 day excursion down the Brazos River. I used a higher hardback seat and the stability was great even in light rapids.
One design issue: I purchased the boat with the ability to mount a trolling motor. The state of Texas requires all boats with motors to be registered and to display the registered number on the front half of the boat. I ordered PVC compatible numbers/plate from boatnumberplate.com. Unfortunately, there isn't much clearance between the SeaEagle emblem on the bow making it difficult to display these numbers correctly. Please consider moving the SeaEagle emblem back a foot to give adequate clearance for this plate.
Thanks for the great review! An alternative to mounting the numbers directly on the kayak would be to stick them on a numbers plate, attach it to the d-rings and hang the plate over the side. This will keep the numbers from peeling off the kayak from inflating and deflating as well.
We vacation with our camper to National Parks and it's great that we can take kayaks that don't take up a huge amount of space. They fold down into a small bundle with handles that can be stored in the camper or in the bed of the truck. To set them up, we just take them down to the shoreline, blow them up, and can be kayaking in 15 minutes or less. These kayaks are very stable, I can stand up in mine and fish, we even tried standing up and rocking them to try to tip them over and could not get them to flip. They are also a lot more comfortable than a hard plastic kayak. Instead of your legs rubbing on a hard piece of plastic, you are leaning on a soft side. We are very happy with the quality and design of the kayaks.
Love this boat. Fast to inflate/deflate, great in the water for one or two people. My biggest complaint is that the carrying bag isn’t fitted with backpack-style shoulder straps. It’s hard to carry any distance with the handles.
