Due to the bad influence of fellow RV travelers like Bill and Nancy, Gin and Syl, Sherry and David, Karen and Al, Judy, Howard and Linda, Laurie and George, (just to name a few) we found ourselves mezmorized by all their adventures on the deep blue seas.
Weakening in the knees, I clicked on the Sea Eagle Boats 4 Less website and we bought our very own yacht in a box, a Sea Eagle 370.
In only three days of placing our order, the FedEx truck dropped off this box.
Opening it up revealed a tightly packed bunch of goodies.
We unrolled the hull across our picnic table to set up the boat.
It required installing these air fill plugs in various places around the hull. Some were well hidden and took a couple minutes of searching to find where they went and then install them.
Using the foot pump, we had the boat inflated in no time. It actually took longer to install the air fill fittings than it did to pump up the boat.
We bought the recommended optional high quality seats. Can’t be too chintzy when it comes to our delicate bottoms!
It looks like a well made product that will live up to its reputation.
Now the fun part, deflating and rolling the boat up small enough to fit in the carry bag.
This was one place were the instructions were pretty vague and hard to understand. We tried several different ways that appeared right until we found the exact combination to roll it up. It took us longer to pack up the boat than to set the whole thing up. But then, I have trouble rolling up my socks, so give me a little leeway here.
Finally we got it right and fit everything in the bag.
The week after next we’re going to my family reunion at Brant Lake in the NY State Adirondacks. Can’t think of a better place for our Sea Eagle’s maiden voyage.
And yes, we will be wearing life jackets. That’s ingrained in my brain, for some reason. ;c)
