Super happy with quality , stability , fishability and set up flexibility of the FS126. Purchased in late August and have put in 18 days on various lakes and rivers up to class 2. So let’s get right to the one negative, the 2 rod holder storage box does not hold its shape well nor is it trustworthy to hold your fishing rods as is. Guessing it will take an hour or two to make and fit some pieces to stiffen it where it will be trustworthy to hold fishing rods. As is, it is ok for holding anchor, line, skegs, shoes ect.

My wife and I have used our two FS126 on a few occasions. We are impressed with the quality of the boats. They are very sturdy and stable and let you go where other boats can't. The trolling motor works great. They are easy to store and inflate with the electric pump. The hand pump, even though large and of good quality, is a workout. Living in Florida, we had to register the boats and place numbers on the side. I purchased them from a company that I believe is on your website and glued them on myself. So far so good.

The seats are very comfortable and swivel. I bought a small anchor for each boat which I highly recommend as otherwise, you will not be able to stay in place. While one person of average strength can carry the boat, depending on terrain, it can be cumbersome. It is much easier with two people or I suppose the cart, which I have not used yet. All in all we are very pleased with the boats and with Sea Eagle. Best of all, we have caught fish using them.

I was very pleased with the SUP that I received. I do wish it had been about 18'' shorter. A water craft in my state 16' or longer has to be registered so I had to come up with a way to put the registration numbers on the side of the SUP. I used stencils and painted the numbers on. Don't know how long they will last but we will see. The issue I have is that the SUP is not as stable as the videos make it look. On my first time to use it my wife and I capsized shortly into the trip. I am looking into putting pontoons on to stabilize the SUP and make it work better for my needs. I believe if I can accomplish the addition of the pontoons I will have a very good fishing craft.

Sea Eagle's reply:

Thank you for the review Ron.

The FS126 is 12'6" so it clears any 16' requirements. For any assistance on the use of your FishSup please feel free to reach out to us anytime.

Hello,

To be honest, I haven't used the boat as much as I'd like. I took it on a trip to South Carolina, bumped in to a pier and put small slices into the surface of the rubber. It did not seem to cause a leak but I was surprised and how sharp the barnacles were and easily the scratch the surface layer. I'm hesitant to take into saltwater again. The rubber seems a little soft and you have to be too careful, That aside, I used it in South Carolina and again locally on pond. It's very stable. I found fishing from it very easy. A couple complaints... First...it's heavy. The guy with it on his back all neatly packed up must be a weight lifter because I can barely get the whole thing off the ground. I also found the transom a little difficult to figure out and still haven't put the motor on because it looks unstable. The seat takes a bit long to set up. That whole looping strap thing is a pain. You need to figure out how to make that easier. Lastly it's not quite Fly Fishing Friendly.
