Sea Eagle 285fpb Inflatable Fishing Boat Reviews
4 Discount Packages available. starting at $799
Brilliant product! Easy to store and easy to transport. Best of all it provides a supper stable platform for fishing. I can stand up to cast with confidence and know that I have no risk of losing my balance and end up, upside down minus my fishing tackle. There is not a kayak in the world that can provide this level of safety and convenience for fishing.
Haven't had out yet, will in spring next year get back to me than
Thank you for your review. Feel free to reach out to us anytime for assistance.
My 285 has many outstanding features. The stability of the boat is incredible and affords me the opportunity to stand up and fly cast as well as sit down. Being able to stand for a fly caster gives you two huge advantages, firstly visibility into the water as well as cast further than when sitting down. I really enjoy the comfort of the boat. The swivel seat is fantastic and the boat is very maneuverable. The products from Sea Eagle never disappoint!
I purchased 2 of these boats (Watersnake package) and have used them 5 times. Love them. In our 60's, we were initially concerned about stability but not an issue, even on windy Colorado lakes between 8-11K elevation. Anchors are needed to secure a stationary fishing spot. A Scotty anchor mount helps with the anchor line. In our sixties, we can easy manage setup and moving the boats, with installing the motor and battery at water's edge. As shown in the photos, we easily lift and secure the boats (w/out motor and battery) car-top for transport from lake to campground, driving at slow speed. This helps with needing inflation only once during the trip. The 2-stage pump is a must and makes inflation a very quick process. Highway transport is in the car, with both boats easily fitting in my SUV. I transport in 2'x3' plastic utility tubs to catch any water from the deflated boats. No complaints or disappointments with the boats and purchase. I feel I got excellent value for durability and quality. Thanks!!!
