Sea Eagle STS10 Inflatable Fishing Boat Reviews
8 Discount Packages available. starting at $1,199
I've been very pleased with my Sea Eagle inflatable; the stability is fantastic, the swivel seats are comfortable -- even for a 6-2 guy -- and the boat's maneuverability is fine. I've got a 30 lb thrust trolling motor that I use with it, and it gets the boat around our mountain lakes superbly. I haven't had it out on a tremendously windy day and I'm trying to avoid that, but I have no doubt that the boat would hold up just fine.My only issue (and I figured this when I purchased the STS10) is that from unloading, to inflation, to putting in equipment takes upwards of half an hour and usually more. It's not something that makes us crazy, but we're considering buying a 10-12 foot trailer before next summer to carry the inflated boat and save us time at the water. A friend also purchased the same boat last winter. He's got a pickup with a flat cover for the bed, and his boat is good fit there -- just a bit of hangover. I figure on leaving the boat inflated during the summer, storing in winter.show full review ▼
From the time I received the Stalker, I've had two surgeries and a broken rib. Needless to say, I've yet to have a chance to go out and use the boat. However I want to compliment the customer service I received. Not only were the people professional and knowledgeable, they were so easy to work with. Also I've never had a time in my life when I opened a box with something I ordered or picked up at a store that something was missing. Seaeagle is the very first company that had everything down to a tiny screw or nut. The other part of what I received was the quality that was represented. This was the best experience I've ever had from start to finish. Soon, I'll be able to take the boat out, and I have no doubt that it'll be top of the line and I'll have great experiences with it.show full review ▼
Graduated from a canoe for fishing to the STS10. This boat is more stable and more comfortable. Am very satisfied with this product.
Awesome boat have recommended it to friends
Not enough leg room. Can't turn in the seat without sweezing the sides and rod holders. Battery encumbers movement. Floorboards are difficult to fit. Forward Scottie rod holder not much use. What is the best way to get all the air out and fold show full review ▼ boat after use.boat after use.
When deflating, press all air out first before folding. Fold from opposite end from where the valves are to push out any excess air when folding.
The boat is very sturdy and I have had some great experiences catching fish. I fish in a salt water bay and the there is generally a lot of wind impact (waves and wind) thus making control of the boat a challenge. The main reason for the three star rating is the difficulty in installing the floor boards. I find myself exhausted after this process and as a result am hesitant to use the boat. Regarding the Honda motor, I strongly suggest you add a small flotation device to the wire on the kill switch. I forgot to connect this to handle one day and when I pulled the starting cord, the kill switch (key) came loose and fell to the bottom of Santa Rosa Sound. My wife, son, and I laugh now, but we spent over an hour in the water, using and under water camera and light and finally found the key. It was a mistake on my part, but now I have a flotation device attached to the wire.
Great boat. Easy to put together.
I rate this boat six stars out of five. This boat is perfect and we love it! We live on the Chesapeake Bay, and this boat is perfect for fishing or just cruising around the many creeks off the Bay, and fishing the many ponds we have here. On its maiden voyage, it took only 28 minutes from dropping the tailgate of the truck to motoring out from the boat ramp, so I was sold on this sweetheart then and there. This is one tough boat too - in getting familiar with it, I bounced off a few pilings, sea walls and tree stumps - no problem. I even ventured out into the Bay to see how she would do, bounced me around a bit, but she hung in there, which built my confidence in her. I currently have the Watersnake electric motor, but am seriously considering purchasing the available Honda gas motor to lighten the load in the boat and make for even easier preparation in launching. Thank you all so much for this great product, many of my fishing friends (maybe future purchasers) are envious!!
This boat is exactly what I needed for the lakes I fish in. Setup is easy, it has been very stable on the water, and with my 55lb thrust trolling motor it moves easily across the lake. I've been able to get where most boats can't. There's only 2 things I would like to see improved, that would be for the boat to be a little wider and for it to have transport wheels to make launching easier.show full review ▼
We're glad to hear that you're enjoying your Sea Eagle STS10! Although we don't have a wider STS10, we do have a wide EZ Cart that makes launching the STS10 even easier and it is available in our Extras section.
Everything arrived as ordered. I also got the two stage pump which makes setting it up a breeze. I have used it a number of times and have a few observations and suggestions. The vertical rod holders are placed in positions which interfere with turning around in the seats. An additional two scotty mounts would be handy to facilitate scotty anchor systems. the measuring tape along the sides is fantastic. Rowing this boat with the elevated oars is a dream, even faster to get around than the trolling motor. The motor mount tends to slip forward a lot. I had to replace the 7 inch pedestals with adjustable ones to gain additional height in order to make sitting comfortable. A storage bag for the metal floor components and oars would be beneficial and help to keep it all together.show full review ▼
