Rated 5 out of 5 by FishinMike200 Great boat for people with limited space
I've always wanted a boat to go fishing with but never could because I owned such a small car. The Sea Eagle Motormount Boat solved my problems. It fits right in my car and can be set up within 10-15 mins. You can fit about three people with gear cramped or two people with gear comfortably. The best part of the boat is the floorboards, with these I am able to stand up and cast just like any other expensive fishing boat. It's made out of a very durable material and rarely worry about puncturing it, but you still need to be careful. The only negative aspect about this boat is its very hard to paddle with winds going against you. I recommend picking up a trolling motor for it to make maneuvering around that much easier. All in all it's a great boat for a great price, I hope to have my Sea Eagle boat for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike37130 large person friendly.
Just took this boat out yesterday for the first time. Combined weight of me and my friend was around 700 pounds and with gear I say we had around 900 pounds in the boat. The only problem I ran into was the back seat broke do to my fat buttocks. I plan to use a ice chest next time. The boat handled very good on a 194 acre lake with a Bass Pro Shops Prowler T30 Trolling Motor. The wind was blowing around 10mph with gust up to 15 mph and the boat struggled little in the higher gust of wind. I would recommend a 50 pound thrust trolling motor for this boat on windy days. The boat is very stable I could easily stand and stretch my legs.
Keep in mind that in some states if you add a motor to the boat it becomes a motor vehicle and will need tags. That problem with that is how to put the tags on a boat that stretches and contracts when inflating and deflating the boat. There are tag holders made for inflatables online but unfortunately bass bro does not sell them. I am using a board with the tags on it and hang it over the side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 12GAMan Quick to Inflate Great on the Water
This is a comfortable boat that suits me perfectly. I use a 55 pound Minn Kota Traxxis digital motor and 185 deep cycle marine battery, group size 31. This boat is well balanced and easy for standing to cast. Although 11 feet may seem like a lot, with a cooler, tackle box and poles, it doesn't seem like any room is wasted. In my state (CA), once a motor is added it becomes a "motor vehicle" and requires registration. That means a state number and sticker will have to be applied, which entails making sure the numbers stay put if you use a glue on placard, or painting the numbers on with a stencil set. I was concerned with over inflating but Sea Eagle includes an easy to use chart with the boat that by placing it on an included pattern will help avoid over inflation. The PVC material is tough. I fold the boat up after use and put it in the bed of my truck. It doesn't even have to be entirely dis assembled. The transom and motor seat stay put which saves time on both the assembly and take down. The boat is buoyant plus and will easily ride wake from larger boats. Tube stability (sides) add to overall buoyancy. A great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gregump44 Great boat
I had been researching inflatables for a year prior to getting this boat. I went with the Sea Eagle 9 and I'm glad that I did.
I went with the fisherman's package and added a Minn Kota motor. I also added a Humminbird 120 Fishin' Buddy. Instead of mounting it on the transom, I took another piece of marine plywood and bolted it to the existing motor mount support seat, extending it about 8" off of the side of the boat. I can view it comfortably from anywhere in the boat.
I use my boat primarily in local southeast Michigan lakes, and the flats of Lake St. Clair. I'm a fly fisherman, and I get a lot of looks from the guys with their $30,000 bass boats when I land a lunker on the fly from my inflatable.
I can go almost everywhere that those guys go, and a lot of places that they can't. I plan on taking it up to the northern Michigan rivers to drift for steelhead.
This is one great and versatile boat!

I own this boat in the 9' model. I'm 6'6" and go 280. I take it for trout and salmon on fast moving rivers, and Lake St.Clair, near Detroit to fish for smallies, pike, and muskie. Occasionally, my son, who is 6'7" and 250 comes along. And, when we take it to the lake, I bring a Minnkota 55 and battery. Remember, this boat is NMMA rated for 1,200 lbs. Long story short-you will be fine.
I see the advertised in the Sea Eagle catalog. They have a free paper catalog it has a lot of items in there to make the boat more user friendly such as rod holders, fish holder kits, a wheel kit for pulling the boat etc.
I know I need a battery for a trolling motor, but I also want to install a small fishfinder. Would I need another battery for the fishfinder or could I use one for the trolling motor and the fishfinder?
The fish finder that you use on this boat needs to be something like a Humminbird 120 Fishin Buddy. It runs on A batteries. You really can't use the larger ones as you need a hard surface to mount the transducer. The 120 is self contained. You can mount it on the motor mount or take a wolmanized board like I did and bolt it to the transom seat, extending it about 8" off the side and mount it there.
The transom on the SE 9 will hold up to 45 pounds. A four stroke 5 HP may be a bit too heavy, however a 2 stroke 5HP engine weighs around 39 or 40 pounds so I would try for a 5HP 2 stroke in order to make the weight work.
