We bought our canoe at the start of Covid and felt so fortunate because other models were back ordered. I'm not sure how many times we used our canoe on the Chattahoochee River by our house but at was at least twice a week all summer long. We did a couple of canoe vacations this summer and are getting ready to do a Florida paddling vacation on Sanibel Island next month. The boat handles beautifully and is easy to set up. It's rugged and super spacious. My only complaint is that I've had to patch the bottom in the same spot a few times. We went over some rocks when the river was low. Patching was a breeze but is in a funny spot right on the fold. I think I have it right now by using a much bigger patch and that seems to have done the trick. The fun part is everybody on the river does a double take and asks if it is an inflatable. It really is kind of hard to believe.
We love our inflatable canoe. It packs up reasonably small for its size and fits nicely in the back of our Grand Cherokee. We use the hand pump to inflate it which doesn’t take too long but is a decent work out. When inflated, it is solid and we were able to strap it to the roof of our vehicle for a 3 mile drive to the lake. On the water it is fast, easy to maneuver and much more stable than a traditional canoe. We got ours with the inflatable seats instead of the webbed ones and I slightly regret it. The inflatable seats don’t really fit in tight and slide around if your not sitting in them. I also find the seats to be at the the height where I feel the most unstable so I usually kneel rather than sit.show full review ▼
The canoe.. I love it and loathe it. I’m glad we got the electric charger. That’s KEY! The canoe is incredibly stable and reliable. My only complaint is it’s weight. I live in a windy area and if it is windy, it’s very hard to control. I’m an avid paddler and I’ve had times where myself and another are padding as hard as possible on the same side and nearly run a ground/ obstacle. Skeg was always used.
This was a boat that was purchased for my son's family. It arrived at my house in a timely manner and in good shape. I knew that when they were camping that they would like to have a boat but they have a trailer and nowhere to put a hard sided boat, hence the blow up canoe.We took it out of its packaging immediately and aired it up. I was surprised at how fast it aired up with the compressor that came with it. The boat really does get hard and firm as if was made of hard materials and does not flex like a person might think it would. My son thought it was too tippy when in the water and sitting on the seats with the family so they elected to sit on the floor. I think maybe the blow up seats you have for it may be a better choice for them. I and my son had it out once and I thought it was not that tippy.show full review ▼
