I actually bought my TC16 back in September 19 and had it imported from the US to UK. I've now been out in the kayak numerous times on lakes and rivers including whitewater. We had been searching for an inflatable kayak for sometime but struggled to find one robust enough for both lakes and whitewater and to be able to load up with a weeks worth of camping gear and food. The Sea Eagle has so far exceeded all expectations. It's difficult to believe just how sturdy it is once inflated. Last week we played on grade 3 whitewater and the kayak handled better than expected. Breaking in and out was relatively easy and the ferry gliding was outstanding. We have covered almost 30km per day when travelling without effort as the kayak cuts through the water with ease. Storage capacity is amazing. The kayak sits nicely on our trolley for when we are moving it on the shore and we have practiced getting back into it after capsizing - easy! The only negative is that I wish the seats were more comfortable.

Amazing quality and strength of construction. Perfect fit for a portable fishing and fun platform. I found for single person paddling, a kayak paddle was an advantage for power and the canoe paddle was used for maneuvering around a fishing hole. Looking forward to get out in 2020.

Fantastic boat! We've had the TC16 for over 2 years now, and I can't say enough good things about it. It's light, stable, fast for an inflatable, carries my family of 4 without any problems, and is constructed very well. It's also really good in class I-III whitewater, especially solo. I love the structure created by the drop-stitch construction, especially since it allowed Sea Eagle to create a nearly plastic boat-like stiffness with only 3 chambers and no thwarts. The only 2 downsides that I've experienced are that it's not self-bailing (which is probably asking too much for a canoe), and putting the inflatable seats into the boat is a bit janky. I'd love to see a more robust mounting system for the seats, but other than that there's nothing I'd change about the boat. Finally, Sea Eagle's customer service is fantastic! The TC16 will be with my family for a very long time!

I have become your best salesman. I take my canoe out at Rock Cut State Park. Many people come and ask me about the canoe and are very impressed. I tell how to get to your website etc.. I am thinking of getting a Razor Lite kayak next. The canoe is great to take more than one person out on the lake, However, I think I would like the Razor Lite when I am by myself which is most of the time as I am out of on the lake usually in the early morning.

Many people can not believe that the canoe is inflatable. They assume that it is some other rigid material. Many people comment about how sleek it looks in the water.

The quality of construction is great. It really skims across the water. I love the portability and ease of storage. I did a lot of research before buying and was very impressed with this canoe when I received it.

Anyway, I love it and look forward to warmer weather when I can take it out again.
