My wife and I are in our 60's. We haul two Hobie Mirage Drive kayaks on the top of our 3/4 ton heavy duty pickup truck. We needed something that we could take our dog and/or grand children with us. The TC16 is large enough for that. We bought the Wood/Web seats electric pump for three package. My review is similar to others and I feel it is very important buyers understand what they are going to get. Pros - Well made! Easy to paddle and easily cuts through waves. Relatively fast. Lots of room. Easy to assemble and take down/fold up. Just follow the directions!

Cons - Lots. The electric pump will not reach the canoe if you have a large vehicle. The wood seats make the canoe tippy as they raise the center of gravity. Lots of storage is required for the seats, manual pump, and oars as they DO NOT fit into the carrying bag. The unit is much bigger folded that you think it is. Get a kayak trolley cart as you will need it if you intend to transport the put together canoe and gear any distance.

Overall, my wife and I are pleased with the inflatable canoe, and impressed with its design and capabilities. It is stable, responsive, easy to maneuver, and able to carry a respectable load of camping equipment, which is what we use it for. As an inflatable boat, it is unique, and we get a lot of positive comments from onlookers. The hand pump is adequate for inflation, though it is a bit tiring. We have only two negatives: It is heavy. We are in our 70s, and while we are in good shape, the boat is something of a struggle to move around, particularly when deflated, as the carrying bag appears to be poorly designed. Folding the deflated boat is also a trial, as it not nearly as simple or easy as it appears in your online video (which seems to depict an earlier version of this boat). Try as we might, we never seem to be able to get it folded neatly.

Nonetheless, we are happy to be able to fit the boat in the back of our Chevy Bolt and not have to worry about strapping it to the roof of the car.

This canoe is great. Everything fits in the trunk of my car and is relatively easy to transport. Initially I didn't purchase the middle seat. Once I realized that I needed it, I had a quick conversation on Facebook and it was on it's way. I recommend the canoe for it's portability and sturdiness.

If you are going to ever paddle solo, get the middle seat.

The TC16 arrived on our doorstep one week after we ordered it (We live in the Yukon Territory of Canada). Sea Eagle has been equally quick and attentive to our orders for an electric pump. The TC16 is easily inflated even with the manual pump. We had a little difficulty with the rings that attach the seats in the canoe. That is the only flaw we found in the design of this fine vessel. It paddles easily with one or two paddlers even without the keg installed. It is easy to deflate and pack away in our motor home. The TC16 allows us to enjoy paddling on our Arctic lakes.
