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.show full review ▼
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.
