I love this little boat! I've had it out twice fishing for 4 hours each time. You can get into some really shallow backwater with it. The inflatable seat is comfortable and it's easy to paddle around. I'm 5'7" and pretty heavy. Once you stretch your legs out, there's not much room for tackle boxes or other gear so the side storage pockets are very handy to have. The boat came with a leaky seat valve, but Sea Eagle replaced the faulty seat cushion. Now all is fine. The videos show an angler standing up in it while fishing, but it is just too wobbly for me trying to stand up. It fits (semi-deflated) in the back of my Rogue SUV and also fits nicely folded up in the included backpack. You can set it up in 5 minutes. The only complaint I could make is that the "flexible" hose for the pump is hard plastic and very difficult to twist on and off the valves or roll up. I am looking for a more rubbery flexible replacement. All in all 5 stars!
This boat is well made, it’s built with quality materials. I’m satisfied with the product. It is expensive, but worth the money.
I purchased the Pacfish 7 about 8 months ago. I have used it a few times on lakes. The only issue I had was on the maiden voyage I almost sank. Turns out the air valves were not seated tight enough. When I got home I tightened them and after sitting overnight it still lost air. I decided to crank down on them. Since I did that I have not had any further issues. Otherwise, the boat performs well. Easy to row and pretty comfortable. Beats a flow tube in my opinion because you stay dry.
