I bought the Seahawk II on short notice the day before heading out for a Chesapeake charter
last summer. I wanted to have something with me "just in case," and it was less expensive than renting
for the week.
I, too, was pleasantly surprised by the design and build quality. It's no Hypalon Zodiac
, but the multi-ply PVC is nicely reinforced by sandwiched fabric
, so it get quite rigid when pressurized. It's definitely several steps up from most of the "pool toys" that Intex makes. The Seahawk II seems to be far superior to the Seahawk 2 (and a darn shame they named them so similarly, as it's bound to create a lot of confusion and disappointed customers).
Aside from taking it out to do a dry leak test, I have kept it in the bag ever since getting it. But I'd like to consider towing it behind my boat
sometime on a cruise
Any comments from people who have this boat? Does it tow stably, or doe it tend to flip over? How satisfied are you with it?
