used the boat to Crappie fish on Black Lake NY . I fished for 5 weeks leaving the boat inflated and docked for the whole time . Boat worked well for the most part . I do have an extremely slow leak on one side and the transom is falling a part . The leak I have not found and the transom I purchased 14 SS bolts and fender washers to hold it all together . I also tried to run a strap that held the transducer that went around the whole boat a big fail and did not allow the boat to plane (thought it was a boat problem) everything was fine once I removed the strap . I am running a 6 hp tohatsu motor very pleased with motor . As far as seating I would like to move the drivers/rear seat forward 8-10 inches but not able as the seat is or has to be strapped down . Also the locking Mechanism is a pain so much so I removed it from the drivers seat . It's a great boat to fish out of and enjoyed the heck out of it . Seats themselves work well as far as comfort and fish-ability . I also bought the wheels and axle to move

Very easy to set up, takes 30-40 mins. You definitely need a turbo pump. I decided to go with a Suzuki 6HP 4 stroke(website recommended max HP). Boat does 15-17MPH w 3 adults. Boat is very sturdy and rigid, does not feel like an inflatable. We have taken boat out in 3foot chop in Biscayne Bay Miami and handles well. As expected for a boat of this kind, you will get drenched! Hey that is part of the fun. With gear, seats and motor on, it’s too heavy to carry. You will need a dolly or a small trailer.

Customer service for this company is very good! Overall, I am very happy with this skiff. It is a great setup, to fish flats. We have caught snappers, tarpons and other nice fish.

Fabulous boat! Sturdy, easy set up, great storage!

A furniture Dolly with a rope is a far better device than the two wheel cart purchased through you. I LOVE my boat!

I’m happy with the boat. The only possible improvement would be to find away to handle taller waves.

I must say, we love this boat! We paired this boat with a 2 HP electric motor + a lithium battery and its never let us down. The boat is somewhat sensitive to wind, being a flat bottom boat, but we have been out in some horrendous winds and always made it back to camp. Love the swivel seats. They are fairly comfortable for long term sitting. The bolts that attach the plastic seats to the pedestal do come loose so they should be inspected. Perhaps some improvement could be made so this does not happen, but other than that the boat has performed flawlessly. The boat is very stable so we can also stand up and fish. My wife and I can handle getting the boat in and out of our CRV without any problem. It takes about 45 minutes to inflate and set up. We put the recommended tow wheels under the boat when we are ready to dry it off and pack it up. It seems to dry in about 1 hour or so. We have used the boat for lake fishing but not in the river so we can't comment about the use for river fishing.

Bought a FSK16K with a Honda motor which should be faster the the 385 fta with a trolling motor I bought before. The problem is on the registration. The Texas tax office requires to pay tax during registration. But the tax has been collected by Sea Eagle. The Tax office told me I need to either get refund from Sea Eagle or let Sea Eagle do the registration for me. Talked to Sea Eagle stuff and was told they don't do registration but they have to collect the tax. Now I paid tax twice. I am thinking to return the boat back to Sea Eagle or keep struggling with the tax money.

Bought trailer from local Academy store. They don't do registration but they don't charge tax either.

A fishing machine. Put in anywhere and fish the flats or deep drop offs without that long boat ride. Very stable platform. One of a kind here in Gulf Breeze, FL. My fishing buddies are jealous. Way to go SeaEagle.

I am very. pleased and satisfied with my FSK16 fishing boat and very happy with you customer service. I had to change how I use my boat as far as transporting and launching it as my wife and I are senior citizens. The boat is a very portable to use if we were younger, so we added a trailer to inflate at home and haul and lauch at various lakes in our state of Penna. We really love fishing in the boat, and get out as much as weather allows and get many people ask what type of boat it is and if we like it. The other thing they ask is where we got it, I"m always glad to answer any questions on and where we bought it. Your company manufactures a very well built inflatable boat . I'm glad to praise your product as well as your customer service , any time I had a question I had it answered. I look forward to 2020 and a summer of fun boating and fishing .. William Slagle

Excellent fishing skiff. There are a couple things I should mention. We took it to Lake Mead and that was a little to much for it. The winds can kick up there and the oars are insufficient for winds over about 5 mph. The motor works fine though, but again, don't get to far from shore. It's very heavy so you'll need something to haul it over rough terrain. Lake Mead's shore is made up of large Idaho potato sized rocks so it was quite a struggle getting it from where we could park down to the water. Assembly is a lot of work and unless you enjoy aerobic workouts, get the electric pump. Once you get it pumped up, put the seats on it, mount the motor and battery, and stow all the gear. Take a break. Once assembled and in the water, it was worth it. The lake has somewhere around 500 miles of shore line and is several miles wide so we didn't explore much of it. We were out about an hour before the wind kicked up and we had to head for shore. We were using a 365 A/hr battery and just made it back. I'd recommend it.
