Part two of review:

Outboard: Tohatsu 6HP w/o internal gas tank. This choice was based on it being the lightest 6HP available. Experienced difficult initial start up, but easy and efficient since.

Trailering: The rock hard stiffness of the FSK16 rode well and without concern on my trailer designed for my other, very different 16' boat. The admiring stares followed by inquiring peeps is a regular occurrence. One man was going to go online to look into getting one of his own.

On the Water: This is a stable boat and it handled the small swells of the big lake confidently. The very minimal draft of the boat allowed me to motor right up onto a flat ledge rock to get off the boat and explore the area of foot. The swivel seats are comfortable, stable and easy to operate.

Fishing: I have yet to fish out of the boat, but it is well set up to do so and I am 100% confident in this boats functionality in this area.

To conclude, the FSK16 two-person boat gets two enthusiastic thumbs up from me!!!!

Everything I was looking for in this style of boat. Living near Minnesota's North Shore of Lake Superior, I was looking for a skiff boat I and a friend could fish from, explore the varying shoreline of this AMAZING lake and was easily transportable. After two outings to date, WOW!!!!! All needs met and met very, very well.

Unboxing: The boat arrives in several well-packed boxes. The setting up of the boat is intuitive and was done without the need to read any instructions. The two-way hand pump is a great product allowing the airing up of the boat to take place both on the push and pull of the device. Using only the hand pump, I was able to reach the 15 psi max inflation, though those last few pounds took considerable effort. While the hand pump is very functional, I would HIGHLY recommend the optional power inflation device from Sea Eagle to make reaching the desired psi much faster and easier. I currently have one on order.
