The good:

Great idea and design

Stable on the water

Decent speed with the 5hp Honda motor

Comfortable enough for 2 people(I think 3 would be too crowded)

Never thought I will purchase a trailer but after a couple of outs inflating and deflating, I can definitely appreciate the trailer. But it's nice to have the option to fold

Good customer service and support so far(thanks to Jerry)

The bad(for me):

The material is not as tough as I thought it will be. A good size catfish managed to put a small hole in the side of the boat. I patched it but it was a disappointing experience.

No way of reinforcing the bottom(checked with SE), since I am fishing intercoastal waters over sharp oyster beds(1st 🌟). Huge drawback for me here.

Wanted to extend the warranty and buy the extra 3 years, but found out the hard way that you can't do it after purchasing the boat(2nd 🌟). Respectfully, it doesn't make sense if you stand behind your product. Didn't make up my mind yet, but I may return the boat after the 180 days

Sea Eagle's reply:

Although the extended warranty is available at the time of purchase of the boat, we would be happy to extend this option to you. To purchase, please call us directly as this option is not available online.

Absolutely a blast, our first adventure was 10 miles each way. The FSK16 is so stable on the water. Definitely buy the electric air pump. Sets up pretty fast 25-30 min about same to disassemble . Highly recommended. I tow a camper and this boat and motor fit right in back of my truck , great adventures ahead

I am very happy with the boat, very spacious and best thing I like, it is very stable. I also use it with my Bixpy jet and it is awesome. A bit heavy for one person but overall it is fantastic.

Finally unpacked the boxes the weekend of June 29th in preparation for a fishing trip over the weekend after July 4th. Portability, stability, shallow water accessibility excellent!!! Potentially want to add the front trolling motor mount. Still learning the ropes with it, but at this point extremely pleased. I can't even imaging it's speed with the maxim outboard on it. I used a 30 year old Mercury 2.2HP and that was incredibly fast.

I purchased the FSK16 skiff in April and have had it out now 4 times. I had substantial issues with Honda motor, but it was filled by Warranty and Sea Eagle and Sales Manager, Will ..did a great job getting this ramped up and taken care of. With that however, I must tell anyone that reads this review, that this inflatable is not for everyone. It is a great boat and well built, but you better be strong.

Must haves:

-You will need a turbo pump. Both blow up and vacuum/deflating flat. You will need a cart to roll it down...and I am going to hand make a front cart would be helpful. I have tried this in the toughest of areas, beaches & long lawn launches -Get a portable leaf blower to blow off debris when you come in from the lake, it will help -CAN IT HANDLE ROUGH WATER...YES, BUT YOU WONT LIKE IT-Seats do not work very well, keep an eye on the wing nuts, continue to tighten as you fish or you will lose them -Carrier Cover will not last, straps and material breaking down

Want to know how rigid this thing gets at 15PSI? Take one of your car tires off, lay it down and stand on it. You absolutely need the electric pump or it will take forever to blow it up to 15PSI. Re: the electric pump. It shuts off automatically at 15PSI. It's a God-send. Every time I take it out, people want to know what it is. Punctures? You'd have to try hard to puncture this thing. I weigh 185. I sat on the side of it and shifted my weight up & down trying to tip it over. Nope!

Well, this boat is what they say it is... From the ponds in mass to the bays of the Cape it is a Great Fishing boat. The only suggestion is to make sure you get the striking around the outside of the boat the new model comes with it. The other feature they need to better is a new system for attaching the eclectic motor to the front of the boat or a better idea is to come up with a way for it to attach to the back transom with the gas motor together just a thought. Other than that it is a great boat for what it can do. So many people commit on it here in Ma no one has seen anything like it... they think its Soo cool... keep up the good work.

If they had ten stars, I’d give them eleven. Sea Eagle exemplifies true American morals and values.

I recently purchased a raft and trolling motor. It wasn’t a good fit for me and my style of fishing. They allowed me to return it, and I bought a 16’ skiff. The engine they sent was not the right one for the boat. They took it back and sent me a bigger engine that was a proper fit. They have gone out of their way to keep me a happy customer.

That’s not all... I am now down by Padre Island, and I have been planning this fishing trip for months. On the way down here from Oklahoma, I had an accident, and the skiff was ruined.

Sea Eagle is selling me a new one at a drastically reduced price. I can hardly believe it.

They have earned my business for a long time to come.

You can not go wrong if you do business with them.

Pro's: Stable boat for an inflatable, two people can fish without feeling like your going to tip over.

Con's: Very difficult to put engine mount onto boat (took two people and 30 minutes just to get it aligned).

The bag for the boat is very fragile and not strong enough for the weight of the boat. (mine ripped the first time I tried to lift it)

I would not take it in rough waters with two people unless you don't mind getting wet.

Boat flooring should be all one piece. Seams had openings which they said was normal. I am hoping that water does not make it come apart in the future.

(See picture)

Sea Eagle's reply:

Current transoms have been improved to ease installation and we are in the process of improving the storage bag.

Your hull, including your EVA foam floor with the butt seam, is covered by your 3 Year Warranty. We are also looking into a way of improving this in the future.

I love my Sea Eagle FSK16. Unfortunately, due to health reasons, I've only had it in the water once this summer. I'm healthy now and looking forward to some cooler fishing weather this fall. The only negative for me was that the assembly process could have gone smoother. The instructions were barely adequate and I had the misfortune of having some missing parts in my box. Once Nick cleared up that problem, everything was good. I would like to suggest that the instruction manual be made a little clearer. The boat performed flawlessly in the water. There was never a time when I felt unstable, even when the water got a bit rough. All in all, a great product that I believe will last for many years to come.

Sea Eagle's reply:

Thank you for the feedback, Jim. We're going to review the manual and see if we can fine-tune it!
