KAYAKS, SUP’S, and FISHING B

 


NeedleNose SUP

The language below is taken verbatim from the blog link above  All three of three are  now in production and will be available in May 2017. Pricing will be very close to the existing pricing on similar products offered on InflatableBoats4Less.com.

“It really is the same as our standard 12′ 6″ NeedleNose. It was 4″ narrower in order to increase speed. We were building this new model specifically for young lady in Okinawa named, Marta Hogan. She is an avid SUP racer and wanted to use our board for SUP races around Asia – you can see her picture below.

The board we designed for Marta was not only narrower, it has an American fin box without the two side skegs we usually have and it was missing the stainless steel D-rings we normally have for those who want to use a seat and the nylon D-rings and elastic cord we have to for those who want to be able to stow gear. This was because Marta wanted the board as light as possible and wanted the ability to change out skegs for different racing conditions. Other than that it is essentially the same craft and the same shape, although considerably narrower. The prototype looks beautiful, but I very worried that it will be unstable on the water. Going faster will not help if the paddler cannot stand on it.”

Fishing FastTrack

“We move on to the third prototype which is our new fishing FastTrack. This is a fishing version of our Sea Eagle FastTrack. It features what we call “Crocodile” EVA – this is a 1/4″ thick foam padding on the side pontoons and on the cockpit floor. I decided to put this EVA padding on to protect against fish hooks and fish fins. Of the two, fish fins are far more likely to cause puncture problems, by the way. In looking at the prototype made for us, we immediately decide that we should use more of the “Crocodile” EVA since it is relatively cheap, very durable and looks really cool. Accordingly, we tell Chris Jung that we want the EVA to extend further down and around on each sides of the pontoons.”

Sea Eagle FishSUP

“When the swivel seat was assembled on the board, my brother John, Ryan, Mrs. Zhong, Ms. Wang and some of the factory technicians began to understand how this strange shaped SUP would work. It was a FishSUP, hence the name, something you could sit on in the swivel chair and fish, something you could stand up and cast and fish from. Something you could paddle and something you could motor with a small electric motor.

I was very happy with the way that the prototype came out. Of course, it still remained to   test this craft on the water and see what it could do. Three weeks later, back in States, we did just that and, as I expected, it was very stable, paddled well, was easy to stand or fish, and motored really nicely. Of course, in WeiHai I did not know that. I only knew the prototype looked good to me.”

BOATING ON THE DELAWARE RIVER — 2 days, 2 nights, 4 friends, 3 Sea Eagle Inflatable Boats

bobby-boats-and-the-delaware-rivermisty-morning-on-the-delawareBobby Weber’s been kayaking on the Delaware River for years. He recently took a boating trip with 3 friends, in 3 Sea Eagle® Sport Kayaks.

Just 10 years old on his first boating adventure, Bobby Weber fell in love with boating on the Delaware River — the waterway that defines the border between Pennsylvania and New Jersey. An avid boater, Bobby says boating is his escape from the city. “I’m happiest when I’m in my Sea Eagle, watching fog lifting off the river and hearing nothing but songbirds.”

Bobby told us recently about a memorable trip he took this past summer — two nights, two days, four friends, and three Sea Eagle® Sport Kayaks on the Delaware; one of 19 “Great Waters” as recognized by America’s Great Waters Coalition.

“Looking back, I’d say this trip down the Delaware River began over seventeen years ago. Around age ten, my family took me on my first Delaware River trip and the memories of that trip have stuck with me ever since. I loved floating down the river, fishing, enjoying the day with my family, and waking up to a fog-covered river.  In the past seventeen years I have been back to the river many times but craved getting back to the type of trips I used to go on with my family.  Last September, I really wanted to get back on to the river but did not have the money or space to buy and store a hard hull canoe or kayak.

He started searching for used boats under $500 but then…

I began doing research and somehow I came across Sea Eagle® Inflatable Boats. At first I dismissed the idea of an inflatable canoe/kayak and began calling people about used kayaks under $500. But as I continued my research, I went back to Sea Eagle® and watched their videos and read their reviews.  I was blown away by the positive experiences people had had with Sea Eagle® boats and how durable they were. I was especially interested in the Sport Kayak models.

 

misty-morning-on-the-delaware

Misty, moody mornings on the Delaware draw Bobby back to the river again and again. Here’s Bobby in his Sea Eagle® SE330.

The Sport Kayak model combined an amazingly affordable price point and the ability to store the whole package in my car trunk. I pulled the trigger, or rather, clicked the button and bought my Sea Eagle SE370 Pro Package.

12 river trips a year

It’s a year later and I have been on nearly a dozen boating trips and have gotten my brother and friend to also purchase their own: an SE330 for my friend and an SE370 for my brother. My brother purchased the SE370 refurbished and used it for the first time on this trip.

Pouring rain

Our trip began on a rainy Saturday morning, September 13th, and it was not an easy start. With heavy rain that looked like it wouldn’t end, my brother and I packed our kayaks and headed out on the Delaware River.

We took some breaks to get off the river and out of the heavy rain so we could eat lunch and drain the rainwater out of our Sea Eagles®.  We found the Sea Eagle’s® drain valve is a very handy feature!

We had set out for a specific campsite but were surprised to find that it was already taken. The occupants were gracious and said we could share but we had two more people coming and we wanted to be alone and enjoy our privacy. We paddled a couple hundred yards more to find another site for the night.

I realized on past trips that you can use the Sea Eagle’s® inflatable seats to sit on around your campsite. And you can use the pump as a fire bellows. You can even use the whole kayak to sit in around camp. It truly is an extremely versatile package!

Our friends landed just before midnight

Our boating trip companions got a late start — a very late start — and were not on the river until 10 pm!  I was slightly worried for them as I knew they would have a very packed kayak and one of our friends had never been kayaking before. Thankfully they arrived at our site around 11:45 pm, guided to the shore by my very bright flashlight. They told us it was not an easy ride in the dark and fog but they made it and had no issues thanks in part to the great stability of their Sea Eagle® SE370.

Day 2 was beautiful

The rain had ended around 6 pm and when we awoke the next morning it was a beautiful day! The sun was out and the river was calling us. We packed up our boats, distributed all our gear as best we could, and headed out for our next spot on our two night trip. We made some stops along the way and took our time getting to our next spot; a larger and much more scenic campsite was awaiting us.

Bobby and his loyal canine boating buddy, Dexter, share a trip down the mighty Delaware in Bobby’s Sea Eagle.

As we neared the new campsite, I pushed ahead to get to the camping spot first because I was getting worried someone would take the spot I had in mind as someone had done the previous day. Coming around a bend in the river where the next row of sites came into view I saw only one other kayaker camping. I was very happy to see my site empty and ready for us.

We set up camp and made a very nice fire.  One aspect about the Sea Eagle® kayaks that proved their value to me is their ability to store a huge amount of gear. I had been doing one-night trips with a friend and was able to store all our gear, but this two-night trip called for even more gear. We found that having three Sea Eagles® for four people made storage a non-issue. We carried all our camp essentials — everything from tents to food and water and everything in between. You can carry it all in the Sea Eagle®.

Ready for his next Sea Eagle® adventure any time

Leaving my campsite is always the sad part of the trip; I always wish I had more time on the river. But the best part of having a Sea Eagle® is knowing that I can set off on a river trip at any time at all. I carry my deflated and packed Sea Eagle® in my trunk so I’m always ready. So as much as I hate ending a trip I know another trip is around the corner.

Thank you, Sea Eagle®, for making these great inflatable boats and being a top- notch company when it comes to customer service and quality of your products!”

Bug* Out* Boat*

 

As a seventy-three year old , I have recently begun perusing survival blogs, books, and YouTube entries, and to my surprise, I found I’ve been something of a prepper all my life. Beginning as a ten-year old boy fantasizing about jumping in a canoe and floating the down the Mississippi to the Gulf armed with my Red-Rider BB gun a belt-axe and a sheath knife, and now finding myself a chubby seventy-something I’m still fantasizing of backpacking across the Rockies, and kayaking in Alaska back country. Today’s scary news has me actively installing a perimeter defense around the hacienda. My survival interests driven by a reality that our modern way of life is can only lead to ultimate chaos.

Many outdoors-men ascribe to the mantra “Go light, Go small”  so our Sea Eagle Inflatables make for a perfect “bug-out-boat”

  • Pick up an inflatable Sea Eagle kayak or SE9 raft, and a foldable bicycle to enhance and extend foraging, bartering, and clandestine trips..
  • Create a “going ashore bag”, with axe, folding saw, small telescoping rake, shovel, and hoe, parachute cord, machete, seeds, and a couple of tarps, think Disneys “Swiss Family Robinson” the boat secured just off the beach, with a concealed patio/summer kitchen (tree house?) hidden just off the beach.

The canoe and the kayak have beenused for travel far back into history. If it’s good enough for our Native Americans to travel the North American waterways, then it’s good enough for me. The single downfall of a canoe or kayak would be deciding what do you do with it, when you need to move on. Do you desert it, or drag it with you? An inflatable boat would be a solid choice. You could toss it in the car pretty easily, for automotive bug out. You could even have a spare inflatable boat, and still take up almost no room.

2016 The Year of The SUP!

56% of stand up paddle boarders are first timers

A recent report by the Outdoor Foundation has presented results about how and why people participate in outdoor activities. This report features statistics from 2012 thru 2015 and show that stand up paddle boarding was the fastest growing sport with 56% or participants doing it for the first time. Sales of Sea Eagle Paddleboards at Inflatable Boats 4 Less reflect this report as SUP’s went from a fraction of our 2014 total sales to an impressive 20% in 2015.

I remember in early 2011 seeing two middle aged women paddling under, and through, the London Bridge in Lake Havasu Arizona. Loving all things that float I began to investigate and found that a fledgling industry of stand-up-paddleboarding was slowly rising to it’s feet, so to speak. But I wasn’t the only one watching. Sea Eagle Inflatable boats, one of the worlds largest inflatable companies was watching too and it wasn’t long before they had their first rigid inflatable paddleboard on the market. Now five years later Sup’s are the number two product-line category behind IK’s (inflatable Kayaks) and gaining fast. As one of my kayak customers told me shortly after adding a Sea Eagle SUP to this Sea Eagle kayak fleet.

“I hardly ever kayak any more. I’m always on my board. I’m addicted to paddleboarding!”

All in all it sounds likes SUP is not only here to stay, but growing steadily. Here at InflatableBoats4Less.com we pride ourselves in being rich in reviews, tutorials and helpful advice, whether it be via our blog, articles, emails or phone calls. If you’re new to SUP or a seasoned paddler, we’re here to help.

Cold Water…Warm Feet

TAKE A LOOK AT OUR LOW COST WET-SUIT FOR FEET.

20150304_074515

Miss Crystal and Captain Tim spend a lot of the time with their feet in the water and have discovered a low cost solution to keeping their feet warm in cold water. Shown above is an inexpensive pair of water shoes from Costco. Walmart will also have these inexpensive water shoes. Couple a pair of these inexpensive shoes with inexpensive cotton ankle socks and problem solved.

The problem with waters shoes is that when the water is cold so are your feet. We  spend a lot of time ankle-deep in our nearby mountain lakes launching and retrieving our kayaks and SUP’s and water shoes are a must-have lakeside accessory. For years we have put up with cold feet plus an uncomfortable and sometime painful layer of sand and sharp pebbles that accumulated in our water-shoes.

 
10501642_593992200715745_37315759386845168_n

 

No more! Two years ago I forgot to take my ankle socks off and after a couple of hours in the water wearing shoes…and socks… I noticed how warm my feet were. An added benefit was that the socks cushioned away the uncomfortable feel of sand and pebbles that migrated into my shoes. It seemed that the wet socks held the body-heat from my feet in the thin wet area between my skin and the socks! Kind of like what a wet suit does for scuba divers. Just inexpensive water shoes (with hard soles) and a pair of dollar socks and i was warm all day. In…and out… of the water.

Spend a lot of time in the water? Give our warm-foot-water shoes a try just like Brent and Aubrey have shewn above with their Sea Eagle NeedleNose 126 SUP on the left, or like Kool Ken shown meditating in a Sea Eagle 385 FastTrack Kayak on the upper right.

What Size Trolling Motor Will I Need?

Powering your inflatable boat or kayak with a quiet stealthy electric trolling motor is EZ …and affordable!

 fishingwithmotormount

Bigger is not better!

Cabin Fever has set in  and questions are pouring in from snow-bound fishermen looking ahead to spring. The #1 question? What size trolling motor do I need for my new Sea Eagle Inflatable Boat? With motor-mounts now available for most of our kayaks and all of our fishing boats here are are some Tips I’d like to pass on. Tips learned over the last 15 years of motoring with Minn Kota power on the back of my Sea Eagle PaddleSki.

Until recently the PaddleSki was the only kayak offering a motormount. Now all of our premium Sea Eagle kayaks offer motor-mounts so let’s take a l look at Green Friendly economical power choices for Sea Eagle inflatable kayaks and inflatable fishing boats.

How fast can I go?

Electric trolling motors are chosen by thrust. Higher pounds of thrust WILL NOT move a boat faster. In fact two 55 pound thrust motors will not move you any faster than one 30 pound thrust motor. Higher thrust 12V trolling motors are designed for bigger heavier boats with larger payloads. The maximum speed of a trolling motor is 5 mph regardless of how many pounds of thrust. The 55# thrust MinnKota Endura with all the new electronic gadgetry is overkill. Save your money! Pick up a MinnKota 30# Endura at half the price of the larger thrust trolling motors.

How Long can I go?

The twist-grip speed control on a MinnKota has 5 speeds forward. On the top of the MinnKota Endura motor are markings, actually a reference graph that show how many hours your boat will run at speeds 1 thru 5. If you ran it continuously at the highest speed (5 MPH) the battery would last two hours, Speed 4 – 4 hours, speed 3 – 8 hours, speed 2-12 hours, and the lowest speed 1 -16 hours.  I find that by prudent use I can enjoy a weekend on the water between charges.

 Here’s what you need to get you going and keep you going.

The items I’ve selected below have served me well for over ten years. Careful shoppers can locates these items for less, or you can save the hassle and leave it up to us.. Simply click Add to Cart and we’ll get these time proven 12v accessories coming your way. Taxes and Shipping Included.

 1. Battery

We don’t sell trolling motor batteries because of weight and safety concerns but we tried all of the storage battery solutions trying to increase range while decreasing weight and we still prefer the old fashioned 12V Class 24 Wet Cell RV/Marine Battery. These batteries are available everywhere and run from $75 to $260 and are the least expensive available.  I buy my batteries at Costco and I stay away from the pretty $260 Optima Blue-Top marine batteries because I’m going to put my battery out of sight in a Battery Box so unless this Blue Top  Optima at $260 buys me less weight (it doesn’t) and more range (it doesn’t) we’ll keep our costs below $100 and stick to a clunky 12v class 24 RV/Marine Deep Charge Battery. Try Costco, Walmart, or your favorite battery supply store and tell them you want a Class 24 marine Deep-Charge battery. Not a starting battery but a deep-charge battery.  Starting Batteries look the same as Deep Charge Batteries but fully discharging and recharging a starting battery will ruin it in a very short time.

 2. Battery Charger

I prefer a 10Amp Charger with automatic shutoff. Take a look at MinnKotta’s Marine Automatic three-stage 10amp charger. Retail $99 w Free Shipping. 

  • Fully automatic 3-stage charging (bulk, absorption and maintenance)*
  • LED display indicates power ON, charging, full charge and check connection
  • Smart and durable system protects against short circuits and reverse polarity problems from improper connections
  • LED indicator lights for an easy and convenient charge
  • Three-year warranty

3. Battery Box

Battery boxes are a clean, easy and safe way to store and carry your battery to the boat. A no-frills battery box can be found for less than $20 or you might choose a Minn Kota Power Center. The Minn Kota Trolling Motor Power Center is ideal for small boats and transom applications on boats that do not have battery compartments. It features two manual-reset circuit breakers.

Minn Kota Trolling Motor Power Center:

  • Features easy-access external battery terminals that allow trolling motor leads and charger leads to be connected without opening the box
  • Built-in battery meter displays current “state of charge” information
  • Two 12V accessory plugs
  • 2 manual-reset circuit breakers
  • Fits group 24- and 27-size batteries

                                                  $79 with Free Shipping.

4. Trolling Motor

I’ve used and sold hundreds of this versatile Minn Kota Endura and highly recommend for inflatable boat use. The 30″ shaft is the perfect length and yet is short enough to fin easily in your trunk

  • 30 lbs. thrust
  • 30″ corrosion proof composite shaft
  • 2 year warranty from Minn Kota
  • Designed for freshwater use
  • 5 forward speeds, 3 reverse speeds

Minn Kota electric motors are known to be the most reliable electric motors on the market. The Endura 30 brings you the reliability and performance you’ve come to expect from Minn Kota at a great value.
While 30 lbs of thrust might not work for a heavy fiberglass boat, it is more than enough for our Motormount boats, Explorer, FastTrack & PaddleSki kayaks.

Even our Transom Sport boats will perform well with this motor where currents are light!Just $149

Recommended for:

  • Explorer Inflatable Kayaks
  • FastTrack Inflatable Kayaks
  • FoldCat Inflatable Pontoon Boats
  • Frameless Pontoon Boats
  • Motormount Boats
  • Paddleski
  • Sport Runabouts
  • Yacht Tenders

This item is covered by the Minn Kota Factory Warranty, not the Sea Eagle two part guarantee. All sales for this item are final.

 Welcome to Planet Green….

Spy Photo of the new 2-person Sea Eagle Pro Angler StealthStalker.

DFSG2 (1)

Here’s a heads-up for snowbound fisherman looking for a two-person “Mean Green Fishing Machine.” The one-person 285 Mean Green Fishing Machine has been out for a few years first in grey and late now in 2014 replaced by the even more popular “Mean Green” version. Always a big seller in grey, “Mean Green”285 sales have doubled-up sales of  the old style 285. Shows you whats in a name.

“Is there room for my wife in that 285?”

With increased sales come increased questions.The number one question from Sea Eagle 285 fpb prospects, “can I fit my wife in the one-person 285?” Our number one answer? Nope…no way. Here’s good news. Some time in April or early May you can take delivery of a brand new Sea Eagle 2-person Mean Green StealthStalker.  Pictured is the Pro Angler with two swivel seats and four Scotty Rod holders plus a robust place to hang a motor.  The Pro Angler shown (top) will retail for $1249 with free shipping and a Deluxe Model with two very cool inflatable fishing seats will run $999 but the four rod holders will be the old fashioned pole-in-a-hole variety. Shipping will be free and InflatableBoats4Less.com will also include a free EZ Cart to wheel this bad boy to the launch. First production run is limited but we can pre-order now so you can be on the water in May. There will also be a optional canopy(below) to keep the sun or rain off whilst you motor out to your favorite fishin” hole. StealthStalkerCanopyWeb

Sea Eagle Kayaks and Grandkids. A perfect combination.

Grandpa Tim, Son Scott, and Grandkids Asher and Madden in a Sea Eagle 380 kayak.

Grandparents often have the time and energy to spend with their Grandkids that they didn’t have as parents. But how do you get your Grandkids to turn off their IPad, or their IPhone, or any of the other mind numbing devices to just spend some quality time with Grandpa or Grandma? Buy a Sea Eagle kayak and head to a nearby lake. It will change your life and hopefully change your grandkids lives as well.

Kayaking Grandpa Galen Erickson mixed in some tech savvy and writing skills and published Grandpa Adventures a blog about his various adventures with Grandkids Sofia, Marcus,and Bryson each telling their own stories with pictures and videos. Take some time to scroll down these real life blog entries.

What’s your story?

So Grandpa or Grandma isn’t it time for you to get started on your adventure ? We can help. Call Grandpa Tim or Grandma Crystal at 928-713-7597 and we’ll help get you started.

Put Some Adventure in Your Next Vacation!

 Travel professionals combine air travel, RV’ing, and boating

McCannasTravel

Out for a paddle on Chilcoot Lake Alaska. The McCanna’s own a Sea Eagle 330, 2 person inflatable kayak. It just fits the 50-lb bag rule for airline luggage. “Always nice to have your own boat to get out on the water!

Read about The McCanna’s travels with their Sea Eagle 330.

Although the McCanna’s use the lightweight 26 pound 11’2″ Sea Eagle 330 Kayak from our value group of Sport Kayaks during their travels we feel Sea Eagle’s best all-around travel kayak is the new 2013 31 pound ultra-light Sea Eagle FastTrack 385 Deluxe.  The Sea Eagle FastTrack is the headliner from our super-stable premium level group of kayaks and is not only the best all around air-travel kayak but tops Tim’s Insane Kayak Rankings as your best kayak choice period .
