Great 9' boat but some thoughts for old people. First and foremost, ALWAYS WEAR A LIFE JACKET/VEST!!! Very, very stable boat with no problems there. However (a however is always required), the seat height sucks. Let's face it, we old folk don't get up and down as easy as we use to during our years younger. I saw the pictures of other fishermen standing and I tried it-still very stable, but I felt very uncomfortable and decided I wanted to stay sitting. I had to be smarter than the engineer who only provided a 7" rise pole for the seat. I cut the pole in half and purchased an 8' x 3-1/2" PVC pipe. It has a 3' interior which is just the width of the riser. I cut various heights until I found the one that was right for me. Old guys can be pretty smart at times. One more thing. I think I am going to buy a larger boat just because I want a larger boat. My children and grandchildren are lining up to be the one to get this one. Don't forget that life jacket/vest. GO SEA EAGLE!!!
Great inflatable fishing machine.
Very well made with great detail, packable, easy to assemble.
Great boat for one person. Easy to set up, use, and store. Quality construction.
Heading to Alaska halibut fishing. Bought the 285FPB. Needed a bag for transportation. Bought the L.L.Bean adventure duffel XL.
The Boat, oars and seat fit perfectly. Had room to add a 12x12 tarp, crab trap, raincoat, snorkeling stringer and 18 " Boat buoy to land the big ones! All at 48.5#. Can't wait to bring in a 100 pounder on this baby!
