We love our porta-bote. I have run boats since I was a young boy and run tuna boats to the off shore canyons. We have owned many boats and spend a great deal of time on the water.
The p-bote is very well engineered, and is our go-to boat when heading for the lakes up North. They take a chop very well,and are robust. We have put ours through some hard use and it keeps on ticking.
Highly recommended.
We have the 14' and run an 8hp Merc 2 stroke. 3 + dog = very comfortable.

If you're considering a Sea Eagle... go to Inflatable Boats 4 Less. According to sources, Tim and Crystal are about the biggest dealer for Sea Eagles and should have great prices.

I have read that the typical life of the seams on most of these is about 6 or 7 years, although some people get way more than that. But until they become unrepairable, they seem to do the job well and have plenty of happy owners. Saturn is another similar brand. If you need something compact, you'll probably appreciate having one of these.

I have been using my 8' SeaEagle for 20 years. Never had a failed seam, nor leak. I did try to install the wooden floor boards one frigid morning and pushed one through the bottom. Took it home, warmed it up and patched it with a piece of neoprene from a trashed float ski that I got from a dealers trash bin. Have been using it with this repair for the past 11 years. A great product!

Call me crazy, but isnt this forum for truck campers?

The OP has a truck camper. We all know many of the TC forum members are not very fond of outsiders. Many of the TC posts could easily fit into many of the other general RV'g categories.

True I do agree, but just because a person has a truck camper does not mean that you should post whatever you want in the forum. I would assume most people going thru this forum are looking for information having to do with truck campers, or something related to TC's or their P/U that is hauling the TC, or towing something with a TC installed. Not something about what a person thinks about a boat. I could understand if you were asking a question about towing a boat with a truck camper.

Putting the boat in the camper lighten up buddy

I agree ... lighten up. There have historically been a fair amount of boat related threads & posts in the TC forum. Those who aren't interested in boats (or other seemingly unrelated subjects) need not click on the thread in the first place. If a thread is too far afield, a moderator will surely move it to the appropriate forum.

agree!


We have two Sea Eagle 385 Fast Tracks. We love them. We went from hard sit on top kayaks to these. I was skeptical of inflatables until we found them. They are great. They track well, are comfortable and are easy to inflate. Ours are a little more difficult to deflate and dry because the 385's have an inflatable floor that needs to be dry underneath before storing.

Check out my blog if you want more info...just do a search on Sea Eagle.

absolutely agree!

we have the se 370 kayak. the bag it packs into works great with the limited storage space in a tc. if getting a kayak and a sea eagle i recommend the se 370 over the se 330 if you are planning on 2 people using it at the same time. although they say the 330 is a 2 person, its very tight. the 370 is wonderful. the sea eagle has skegs on it to track the kayak in a straight line. they work great.
we bought a used one from inflatable boats 4 less. saved on the money and you cant even tell it was used. the used ones come with the same great warranty as a new one also.
its a great option to those of us with tc's that have space problems storing a kayak.
