Hello, Tim: Well, I have the 435 Paddleski down here in Belize and have been out to the reef 4 X's since I arrived here at end of November. Had some real nice weather a week ago to enjoy the Sea Eagle 435 Paddleski out at the reef. The Paddleski is very stable in 4 ft waves and tracks very well. I like the rust-proof D-rings, the handles in the back which allows handling even when my wife and I load it on top of the golf cart. Thank you so much for your help in acquiring it.Alan G Hite
The Sea Eagle inflatable boats Tim and Crystal offer are fantastic and live up to their reputation. That is a given. But dealing with Tim and Crystal takes the entire experience to a whole new level. They were great helping up choose, order, obtain and learn to use our tandem kayak in 2011 and were always just a phone call away for advice. Recently, we became unable to use the kayak and they were there, going above and beyond, to help me get it to one of our kids in another state. Not something they needed to do, but an example of their caring customer service. Definitely the best way to obtain and enjoy Sea Eagle Kayaks and know personal support is always there.
My wife Nancy and I took our 420X Deluxe through Ruby Canyon of the Colorado, 26 miles of flatwater and Class 2. At 6'5" and 5'6" we are "Big People" yet the inflatable seats were quite comfortable and sat high enough to give us a stronger paddling angle while keeping our bottoms above any bilge water, and were easily removable for lunch on a sandbar. The boat is wide enough to be stable and comfortable, yet paddles easily enough to make good headway against winds. Unlike some brands requiring partial deflation to install or remove the skeg, this design allows easy switching from skeg-less (for shallow waters), or skeg-on (for better tracking). Unlike some designs, skeg-less is a true option since the 420X does track OK even without the skeg. With the self-bailing ports open, we could have used another inch of thickness in the drop stitch floor to float us totally out of the bilge water, but the inflatable seats added enough height to keep us fairly dry. I've tested several IK's and this one is the keeper due to its well-rounded performance and comfort. And with Tim's good customer service, good prices, and good product, I am now considering buying another kayak from Tim's Inflatable Boats 4 Less.
Dan...awesome review! You've even included some product qualities that I was unaware of.
Our new 2017 website is on the air and your review is the first posted. I can't thank you enough!
Thank you so much for your attentionto the purchase of my new FastTrack. All your videos and other advice isvery much appreciated. I’m not sure if anyone else wouldhave been as easy and as informativeas you have been. I’ve been looking for a kayak for yearsand finally decided to look at inflatablesdue to weight and transportation needs. I’m getting to old to carry 60 pounds of kayak to and from the launch site, letalone put it on top of my SUV. Your excellent advice and info made ita no brainer for the FastTrack. Thanks again and have a great weekend.
I continue to be extremely satisfied with my FastTrack 385, purchased from you folks a couple years ago. I continue to make short YouTube videos about my 'Grandpa Adventures' in the boat. One recent tongue-in-cheek video features a short trip with my 12 year old grandson, Sam:Thanks for many happy hours in my FastTrack, including last weekend – two days down the Namekagon and St. Croix rivers.
Gale...you're my hero! Greatest video ever. You're Grandson will never forget the memories of his time with Gramps' on your many jungle adventures.
We had the opportunity to try out the 380x this past weekend and love it! It meets and exceeds our expectations in every way. We were on the river in north Alabama with two of our children, their spouses, and three teenage grandsons. Everyone had to try it out and all were very complimentary. Our son, who is a civil engineer, and his wife took it out and came back talking about how stable it is. He seems to be the 'old mother hen' of our three children, and seems to always be concerned about our safety. He seems to be comfortable with us being out in an inflatable kayak, but is insistent on us rigging up a pole with a blaze orange flag to make us visible to boaters. Probably a good idea, and the flat water areas we will visit near home have a lot of nuts running around at high speeds, some of which are tanked up on alcohol. Thanks for you input and recommendations. YOU CANNOT HAVE THE 380X BACK!
We're so thrilled with our FastTrack 465, wow. We tested it for two day-paddles in Lake Ontario with 20-35 kph winds and were amazed at how speedy and stable it was even into the headwinds. We just returned from a 4-day canoe trip into Algonquin Park's interior and we zipped past every canoe out there with ease. I really can't believe how much truer and quicker this tracks than a hard shell canoe, especially in wind. Incredibly comfy, too. We were loaded with 150-180lbs of gear, our 50lb dog, and the two of us (300lbs). Soloing it is a dream, too and I can really get moving.
Received our Explorer yesterday, and tried it out on Klamath Lake this afternoon... Love it. Nice and stable, and tracks well. Glad we went with the bigger size, itsjust perfect for the two of us. Thanks for your advice, and for the great service. Have already recommendedyou to some Oregon friends... It turned a few heads at the lake too. Won't hesitate to contact you again if we want a change or upgrade.
I just wanted to say thank you for the amazing customer service and ease of purchase of our new Sea Eagle boat. The lady at our boat registration office was truly impressed with the signed bill of sale from Crystal. It made registering our boat a piece of cake. I gave her your website so if others ask for a perfect place to purchase an inflatable she can direct them to you.
I'm sure you don't remember me but last year I bought a Fastrack 385ft from you. My wife and I live in the Las Vegas area and primarily use our kayak when cruising on our 23' C-Dory powerboat. We love our Kayak! For the last several weeks we've been cruising around the San Juan Islands and surrounding areas, and paddling in anchorages and marinas. On several occasions I have been asked about the Fastrack and given rides to folks. All are impressed by both the handling and construction. Each time I also mention your names (and web address) and the level of support and ethical service I received from you. I hope you receive some inquiries as at least two folks expressed intense interest. Thanks again and keep paddling...
