We use our Sea Eagle when traveling. It is nice to have an inflatable boat that we can safely store out of sight when we leave out truck/car. We have used out sea eagle on many single and multi-day trips. It has been very durable and gets us where we want to go. It is not as fast as some boats but does a reasonable job. It took a while to get the hang of portaging our Sea Eagle but after a bit of experimenting we could do even 1/2 mile portages without too much trouble. We find it a great boat to have.
