Overall this little boat has been great. We have taken it out lake fishing lake a few times and it's performed quite well. Set up takes about 20-25 minutes with a foot pump, and with a wheel kit we can roll down to the launch and be underway in under a minute. It is not a fast boat. We leave the wheel kit attached which might slow us down a little. We have a 30-pound thrust motor. I don't feel comfortable going above setting 3 out of 5 because of the stress it puts on the motor mounts. The boat is stable, the seats are comfortable, and there is adequate room for two of us and our gear. I think this boat would struggle in a headwind. I'd only recommend it for small lakes, or maybe larger lakes on calm days. Open water weather conditions can change quickly so try to head out against the wind so it will be easier to get home. The materials feel durable and construction looks good. I will probably invest in an electric pump sometime in the near future. I recommend thoroughly washing after fishing.

Haven't had the STS10 for that long, but the 5 or 6 times i've inflated and used the boat, it has not disappointed! The construction in my opinion, is more than what i expected. It's rugged, and the pictures don't really show it that well, but the bottom of the boat has some wear reinforcement that is holding up really well so far. I use it to fish larger inland lakes and smaller streams, so it gets skidded across all kinds of abraisive surfaces. Grade A construction. The transom motor mounts molded in to the hull are tough...a bit too tall when trying to connect my trolling motor...The portability is amazing. I have a sub compact suv and the whole kit including the motor and batteries fit inside with room to spare. It's truely the most important feature i was after when shopping for a fishing boat. Buy the plug in air pump, and a 1000AH 12.8 v. lithium ion phosphate battery. This boat needs both IMO. Also a great option for a charger is the Noco Genius 10.

Works great in the local lakes!

Great time on the water, easy to assemble.

I chose the STS10 because I wanted a boat that could float Texas rivers and creeks as well as get onto larger lakes. It is a great choice for these conditions here. I opted for the Minnkota 30lb trolling motor and it does a good job pushing the boat solo, and an ok job with 2 on board. The only reason I’m not giving this boat a 5 is the time and effort in assembling the floor boards. It takes no time getting the boat inflated and rigged once the floor is in, but it takes a lot of effort to get the board in deep enough fore and aft and then another struggle raising them up to attach the center H bar. The instructional video makes it look a lot easier than it actually is, and I’ve spoken with the great customer service team at Sea Eagle and gotten a few tips to make it a bit easier, but it is still a struggle. Sea Eagle has a dropped stitch floor on their Skiff along with good seating, and I’d be first in line to buy a new floor as an option.

Size is perfect for those little lakes that big boats aren't allowed. My wife loves the stability of of many worlds.

Inflatable handles nicely with good stability. I put an electric motor in bow and gas 1.5 hp Suzuki in stern clips right along. My biggest problem is installing floor boards and it is pretty heavy overall. Wish there was an easier way to attach transport wheels. They are a pain to put in and take off. No suggestions as to how to improve that short of installing a permanent wheel bracket to the bottom of boat. Any suggestions would be appreciated. It enabled me to catch a bunch of nice Northerns.

Thank you for the review. Here is a video showing the best methods to set up your boat and install floorboards -

Where do I start. First off, I love this craft. I have 2 Hobie kayaks (I'm actually in the process of selling, if you are interested?) that this STS10 replaced. As I am getting older, the kayaks were just too heavy and the transportation/storage not as easy. I wanted a craft that I could fish with my wife and this was perfect. I have used the STS for one summer now (14 days) and there is no deterioration (I usually inflate it at the beginning of my trip and leave it inflated for 3-4 days with absolutely no loss of air pressure). I bought the Honda gas motor and it does take getting used to but I am becoming a pro at it. I also got the electric pump with a battery. IMHO, this is the way to go! So easy to set up and inflate. In summary, I am so glad I made this purchase. It excels in everything they claim: storage, transportability, set up and quality. I expect to get years of enjoyment. In fact, I am considering purchasing two 285 frameless crafts with an electric motor.

Wow what a great Spend, durable, easy to use, functional and it catches fish. Great for Northern NM lake fishing. I pull 34 ft 5th wheel and I carry my Seaeagle everywhere I go. 5 Stars
