This is a great boat for getting out on the water in an affordable way. I live in Hawaii and have taken this boat out in Maunalua Bay as far as China Walls, which is perhaps a mile from dock. Someone posted that this boat is uncomfortable to sit in, and I couldn't disagree more. It's perfectly comfortable, and in fact, you can lie down in and rest! It takes maybe 20-30 minutes to set the boat up, but after that, is literally smooth sailing from there. We used Minn Kota motors for this and they work fine, you just have to rinse them off after each use, same as you do with the boat. This boat was actually purchased used from Sea Eagle, so don't hesitate to grab a used one if you can. I've had the boat for nearly five years and it looks as good as the day I got it. It is perfect for shallow water too. Of course, on windy days or white capping days, I wouldn't recommend taking it out, but on mild days, it's great. In high winds, the boat will turn sideways and will be propelled by the wind, so that saves power!
Nice little boat, easy to get on the water.
Not comfortable seating, engine a bit too slow.
I have only had my boat on the water once. I am a disabled vet and find that I need help with it. By myself it is a struggle to assemble and launch. Once on the water I find that the trolling motor, included with the Fish -N - Troll package, is just adequate for the job. I would recommend a 50# trolling motor. Especially if you really want to troll with it. The quality of the boat and package are the best. This is the second one of these I have had. The first one had the wood floor that I like better than the inflated one. Although, it would make a good weekend project to make a wood floor, if your so inclined. Even though I am not able to appreciate my boat as much as I would like to I still give it good marks.
I love it, even though I only went on it twice this summer. Due to the lakes being contaminated and I couldn't eat the fish, I haven't really had the chance to enjoy it.
