I wanted to make a review post on my Sea Eagle FKS16, but waited until I had seriously fished with it. Ordered our FKS16 last October. Due to Covid it was back ordered until January of 2022. During back order time the Sea Eagle staff was very professional and helpful. We purchased the FKS16 to take to the coast while camping on the sound in our Fifth Wheel camper. Inflation with the two stage pump is flawless. Once inflated using the heavy duty Sea Eagle cart makes the boat easy to maneuver to and from the water. Inflated this thing is rock hard. It inflates three separate chambers at 15 PSI. The only way to describe it is to take your spare tire and lay it on the ground and stand on it. It’s that solid. So, have taken the Sea Eagle out several times in the sound while camping. Everything has been great so far. The Mercury 6hp I purchased has worked great. Plains quickly with two people and will run 16 mph. Goes in as low as 6” of water. For my wife and I it’s perfect so far. Plenty of room. Very stable to stand up and fish. Deflated and packed; it actually fits in the back seat of my 2020 Chevrolet crew cab. The boat alone weighs 99 Lbs without the motor or any equipment. Hears a couple pictures of it out at the sound where we stopped to take a break. And one of it in the canal that goes out to the sound just behind our fifth wheel at the campground. Would recommend to anyone else thinking about purchasing.
