At first I had a hard time moving the boat efficiently; but I had the blades of my oars on opposite sides of the boat than they should be. Wider part of each blade should be on bottom, SeaEagle logo on top.

I use this for trolling mostly, floating down the gentle river where I live for bass and pike. It tracks very well too. Rod holders work very well, and the canvas is excellent to protect the bladders from puncture. Very comfortable seat. Wasn't expecting that! I get alot of use out of the measuring scale on the sides too. The quality is incredible. This is not a true "backpacking" boat, as I was hoping, as it is fairly heavy and hard to carry for more than a half a mile or so, but it is perfect to keep in a car or truck. I wish SeaEagle made a motor mount for it! Made in the USA too. Good visibility. Comfortable enough to spend a whole day fishing. Splurge for the floor too. Worth the price difference. Best inflatable I ever owned or saw.

I received my Packfish7 earlier this week. I had an issue with losing pressure. I checked for leaks with soapy water and found leaks at both valves. Although I wrote to Sea Eagle for advice (which they answered the following day), I used the supplied valve tool and tightened both valves (which appeared to be not fully tightened). I reinflated the two chambers and it held pressure.

Today was its maiden voyage. For an almost 60 year old guy it was a little tricky to get in and launch from the bank of the pond, but not too bad. Rowing was a challenge. The oars kept hitting my thighs. With nothing in the boat it’s likely easier to keep your legs flat, but with rods and tackle it’s frustrating. I tried to stand twice. Might be too old for that. Sitting was comfortable. Caught 4 bass. One was just shy of 4 lbs. All-in-all it’s a nice boat. Just have to figure out how to row it easier.

Ok. So here is my honest opinion about my Sea Eagle PF7. It get me into places I was never able to access before. Being a fly fisherman, I need some room behind me to cast my line, and most places in the PNW I fish have lots of trees. Obviously. So I've been able to get to better areas, so I've been able to catch more fish as a result. It is durable so far. I have only been on small lakes and a still river, so not sure how it holds up in heavier conditions. I can fit my water bottle, lunch, and all my flies and such in the side compartments. I don't use the rod holders since I have fly rods. (No butt section) I am excited to see how it works on an overnight or a longer river trip. It paddles easy, and perfect fit for me. I am 5'10 150lb. I did notice on the bottom I have a seam that is starting to come unglued, but I think that can be touched up with some epoxy, or aqua seal. I would advise the floor board so you can stand up. Makes for great sight fishing. Paddles squeak a lot. Only downside. Packs down wel

So where do I start let’s just start I guess with if you have the money for it buy it, it was worth every penny so far I’ve used it one season and I get nothing but compliments, especially with the floor board you can stand and fish for such a small craft it’s just awesome I don’t have to lug my 95 lb kyack around that I can stand in and if I wanna stop at a pond on the way home from work and fish for a bit it inflates in no time at all and I’m on the water in less than 15 mins usually I only wish I had more money to be able to try more of their crafts because I fish all the time and I love this one however I’d love to have something a little bigger I’m 6’ 235lbs and I have two things however I wish I could fix the leg room is one gripe is when paddling I have to sit on my knees also the original paddles aren’t the best either I use a kyack paddle instead as the ones that come with it are confusing to use and get in the way when fishing otherwise the craft is perfect for someone smaller than myself. 4 stars
