you folks have a great product and a great company to deliver the goods and then back it up. there are several pieces of gear I would like to use if I was only about 30 years younger. I bought the sea eagle mainly for my kids but I have used it occasionally and find it very user friendly. thanks tom wagner
It is light and compact to put in my car's trunkBUT 1) It takes at least 40 minutes to inflate including the seats2) The seats move and yet I cannot glue a cleat to time them down on the kayak A real bummer3) It is hard to paddle especially with just slight wind4) The sail is almost impossible to set up and control I only used it once5) I no longer use it as I bought a hard kayakI would not buy one again - I tell my friends not to bother with the kayak maybe one of your dingy that use an outboard for power.
I thought this would be a good choice for my brother and myself, as we are seniors and need something light weight to get in and out of the car. It was Awkward to paddle; sides too bulky to use the paddles effectively, Seats poorly designed and very low setting in the kayak. I ordered two inflatable cushions to boost the seats up higher, but never used them.Only used the kayak once. Very disappointed.
Well it was easy to inflat and fast to the water plus light across the water.no problems found.What I did find out cleaning it wasn't hard at all just rinse flip inside out and let dry
Love it used in many states and works well for my wife and I.. I have recommended it to many people. Have used it in Maine to CA.
The boat is great. I'm not hard core but like to get on the water. Delivery was prompt. I love that it fits in the trunk of my little 2 seater convertible. I'm always ready... Very sturdy and comfortable for 2. It's also very maneuverable for 1 person. I would absolutely buy again!
We took our Sea Eagle to Vancouver Island and kayaked in protected bays. We had a great time, and the boat performed perfectly. Doug, our 50 pound border collie mix, slept in the middle while we paddled. Great kayak and great price.
We have only used it 2, maybe 3 times. My weight being about 250 pounds, no matter where I sat I had a difficult time. The inflatable seats just didn't seam to hold my weight well. I was uncomfortable and with my much light wife as a second passenger, it was not well balanced in the water. Then the last time we used it, a couple of years ago, it caught on a bolt on the trailer and ripped a hole in it way too easy. We patched it and tucked it away and haven't used it since and don't know if the patch worked or not yet. Overall, because of our age (62 and 66) and size, it was not a good purchase for us.
I only been on two kayaks in my life and this is one of them. The SE 370 is not as fast as the hard shell kayak that I rented. It was harder to go straight even in calm water, perhaps my skill level is not there yet. I had some fun for the price I paid, I wish I could spend more time on it to really know what it can do.
I am very satisfied with my kayak and the convenience it affords me to carry in my car. the ordering and delivery were a non event.
