  • First impressions on our Sea Eagle 12.6sr

    So, after a few weeks of rain and work conflicts I got to take our Sea Eagle 12.6sr out for the first time. Boy was I impressed! True, I had limited experience with only 2 other inflatables but right from the get go it was a blast. The SE is NOT just marketing hype. It is a solid, well made boat. It's not tippy even when standing up as I tried at the dock. I had the inflatable floor a little under inflated but it still felt solid and I could sense it absorbing ripples and small waves giving me a smooth ride. It's easy to get up on a plane and went a lot faster than I thought it would with a Tohatsu 6hp. The best feature is the external inflatable keel. Steering was crisp and precise whether planing or at low speeds. The other inflatables I tried had a tendency to wander and needed constant attention at the tiller to maneuver. In all I spent a solid 2 hours and traveled over five and a half miles, and didn't even drain the small internal tank. Not bad for my first time out. Can't wait to go again.
