Good bye canoe hello inflatable raft. The main reason for this switch is weight and we no longer have a way to transport the canoe. The canoe at 100 lbs was hard to handle and bulky. The Inflatable boat weights 48 lbs and is much easier to handle alone and stores easily in the RV basement.
We found the Seahawk 4 at Academy Sports. We would have preferred to go with the 3-man raft but Academy Sports had the Seahawk 4 on sale for $64.99 and we couldn't pass it up. We inflated the raft in our living room with hardly any spare room around it. It is approximately 12 feet long when inflated. Using the pump that came with the raft was very easy and only took 30 minutes to fill all three air chambers.
We love to travel in our 2021 Coachmen Beyond van about half of the year. Join us, if you will, to see where our adventures take us.
