It’s a fun boat that’s easy to set up. It’s easy and quick to get it set up for the water. It needs some improvements however. There are no webbing pockets to put stuff in. Also, the straps that hold the seat down aren’t very secure. So far the construction of the boat has help up well.

Its awesome. I have a trolling motor and the boat is so light, that its really fast. You can stand up on it no problem. I have two seats. I can't think of anything that is bad about it.

I was a bit wary of committing to an inflatable boat. After extensive research and reading reviews, I went ahead and made the purchase. The 16' Skiff arrived from the east coast within a week, very fast. I had an issue with the boat right out the gate, however, it was inconsequential being Sea Eagle's customer service is top notch, and they quickly rectified the issue. The high level of customer service and very rapid attention to resolving issues has shown me this company completely backs its high-quality boats. Rest assured you will get what you expect and what has been advertised. The boat...Awesome, it is everything they state on their website. I could not be happier with my purchase. This inflatable is amazing. It is hard to believe it is an inflatable, solid, rigid and a spacious deck to fish from. Unloading from car and set up takes me approximately 30 minutes. I have a 4 hp outboard on transom and an electric trolling motor on the bow. Gets me to fly fishing spots not accessible from shore.

2022 Year End Review: So, thought I would give a 2022 year end review of the FishSkiff16. My original review when I ordered and after I had taking it to the coast fishing is in the previous reviews. So, I have taken the FKS16 to the coast in April and October for a month each time. I pull a fifth wheel camper and folding and storage is the main reason for my purchase.The boat fished flawless with absolutely no complaints. Since we Camp right on the sound, putting the boat in and taking out was easy with the two wheel cart I purchased from Sea Eagle. I purchased a 6HP Mercury for the skiff and so far it’s worked perfect with the boat allowing us to go in as little as 6” of water as advertised. We fished the sound going out 4-5 miles. Fishing 5-6 hours very comfortably and never feeling unsafe even in choppy waters. Unfolding and folding was easy with my wife helping. (Storing in the rear seat of my Chevrolet 2500). Sea Eagle is a top notch company and actually cares about their products and customers.

Sea Eagle's reply:

Thank you for the excellent review!

The boat is terrific. Get the electric pump, I have found that the provided hand pump is ideal for inflating the side chambers. It takes 10 minutes to inflate the main air chamber. While the main chamber is inflating, inflate the side chambers to about 2 pounds of pressure. That leaves enough flex to allow lining up the rear transom and the aluminum board in the bow, that supports the electric trolling motor.

If you have a dog, he will love this boat. The side chambers are about the dimension of a parking curb stone. A dog can step into the boat without facing sloping aluminum sides. The bottom is flat and non skid. The dog can easily lap water from inside the boat. I have introduced the dog to the boat without the front pedestal seat or using an outboard motor. That allowed me to remove the rear transom board. The dog can easily re enter the boat from the rear, with very little help, if he is swimming.

It is worth while to purchase electric extensions for the electric motor, available from Amazon.

I could not be more pleases with my purchase of this boat. We camp with a 5th wheel so needed something portable for fishing trips. I thought this might be a compromise for a fishing boat. I was wrong it is like having an inflatable bass boat. With the solid floor that you can stand up on and the pedestal seats this is one great fishing boat. Thanks for a great boat and customer service before the purchase helping me pick the right boat for my needs. Bob

Lake Pend O'Reille in N. Idaho is where we live/boat. We had a 12' aluminum fishing boat/trailer with a 15 hp motor chosen to allow our teenage grandkids to use, and smaller for storage, but we found it was unsafe on a 30 mile long lake that can get rough quickly. While RVing in NW Montana I saw one of these FSK16 Sea Eagles with a 5 hp motor being used on the Kootenay River. I talked to the individual and determined this was a great little fishing boat, light, safe, comfortable, and good speed with a small motor. I ordered a FSK16 and then found/bought a nearly new 8 hp Tohatsu 4-stroke motor...and my Sea Eagle arrived yesterday afternoon. I assembled it without trouble, but found my electric pump would not pressurize above 4 psi, also one of my seat frames was not constructed correctly. I called Sea Eagle this morning and was told to send photos documenting the problems. I just received confirmation that the replacement parts are being shipped. Will update after use. Great boat & customer service!

What a great boat! Every time I am putting it in or taking it out of the water folks with a kayak will stop me and ask about my boat. Then they see me roll it up and put it into my truck under my tonneau cover and they are blown away. The boat, trolling motor, seat, battery and all my fishing gear stay in the back of my truck all year. When I am ready to go fishing I just take off, no loading and strapping down my kayak and no hitching up a trailer. To be able to sit or stand and then to be able to walk around keeps me on the water all day. Talk about stability! I use the whole boat to fish from, I can take a step back and set a hook without the feeling of falling out of the boat. The flat bottom and the rugged hull allows me to get way back into the smallest creeks to find the big ones. The paddle allows me to creep into spots so I don’t spook the fish, heck most fish have no idea I am there until my shadow hits them. To say I love this boat is an understatement.

I have the fishing Skiff and Canoe. I have had the skiff for over 3 years now and words cannot describe how much I have enjoyed this boat. I have modified modified the front seat as a casting chair with the foot control trolling motor. It is very easy to travel with. This has allowed me to travel to many different lakes in many states. I have even had the boat a couple of miles off shore in the Gulf of Mexico. But I am as equally impressed with the customer service as I am with the boat. I had an issue with the boat that after searching the internet appeared to be pretty rare. I reached out to customer service and the response and action that was taken completely surprised me. In short, Sea Eagle stands by there products.
