I have owned two sealution…

I have owned two sealution since 1992 and bought my current "xs" in 2017. No other boat I've seen offers Harry Tinkin;s combination of flared tumble seat tube with up-turned surfing now and stern. Hands down the best handling boat with stability ever made. My first Sealution Xl in roto mold was more comfortable but at 71 lbs, too much to handle (as Walt of Jersey Paddler warned me.) The XS is 2' 6" shorter but still great unless you are crossing oceans. The Hull will flex under heat on your roof but does bounce back with a sandbag. The cockpit is big but not a bathtub(who invented those anyway?) If you don't lean to turn you don't need a Sealution.If you can make a big boat dance you can take her anywhere.

I bought this discontinued boat used a few years ago. It was in decent shape but had plenty of scratches under the keel. I mostly paddle tidal inlets and in protected bays and she handled all conditions I threw at her. She was fast and responsive while maintain primary and secondary stability. I am 6'2" and weigh 185. I had plenty of room in the cockpit and never had an issue packing gear in the compartments for overnight trips. The Sealution II has a capacity of about 375 lbs. which is more than I ever needed for one night on a barrier island in South Carolina.

I would still be paddling this boat had it not been stolen. I only hope the thief enjoys it as much as I did. I miss this boat, but I have moved on and now paddle a fiberglass boat.

This is a fun boat and is plenty stable for a new paddler. If I had found one used I would have bought it, and still may should I come across one (to have as a loaner or spare). I rated her at a 7 because I have learned how much faster and reactive a glass boat is with my same technique and skill level. If you are looking for a great boat at an affordable price (used only) I would say this is a sure bet.
