Have one

Juro, I have one. If you want to try it stop in when you come down to RI. I have the Sea Eagle six foot. I have a wooden floor for it, and a seat that goes across it. The problem I have with it is when coming in from outside the surf line it has two bosses on the bottom rear for attaching the outboard bracket, and these dig in the sand. Fishing in the salt ponds it works fine other than it is tough to row into the wind and tide. I do have a 2 hp motor for it, but that,s not perfect either as it is a long shaft, so you can't really go in shallow water. If you want to try it for a while, before you buy one pick it up.
