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.

Usage in the Adria, around Krk and off the coast of Premandura, southernmost tip of Istria. 2 Parents and 3 children, total weight with package, 350kg (about 750 lbs). Tracking: Tracks very nicely, even with no fin at all. Used it most of the time with an electrical motor, fitted to the SUP-box with an adapter. The rig is best described as an E-bike on the water. You have to paddel and also steer with the paddles, but the engine will give you incredible thrust. There is a remote controle attached on a wristband, to controle the motor. It has safety features. When it get´s wet, like when you fall into the water, the TC16 won´t take off without you but stop the engine. I was able to travel 17nm per day, with 2 batteries (2x350Wh). Speeds of 5kn are possible, but mostly I do like 3, as it is the sweet spot between thrust and battery management. TC16 is very stable, even in high waves (5ft). It is important to keep the center of gravity low. Keep an eye on the weight distribution -waterline must be in the water.
