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.
