There are a lot of people who enjoy the idea and perhaps the activity of venturing out in a boat. The downside is that most people are unable to afford a boat of their own. This is why inflatable boats are becoming such a popular alternative to traditional style boats. Inflatable kayaks are replacing hard shell boats, but they do not provide boaters with much room. The Intex Seahawk 4 was created to be an affordable alternative to traditional, but also to be larger than an inflatable kayak. Does it measure up? Take a look at our Intex Seahawk 4 inflatable boat and motor review to find out.
The Seahawk 4 boat is designed to be used on lakes by recreational fishermen. That is why it is made with 30-gauge PVC vinyl. It can resist damage from abrasions or impacts.
This boat can hold up to 4 people at one time, thanks to its inflatable cushions, which are located on the front and rear of the boat. This should give you plenty of room to take along friends so that you can venture out for a good time fishing together. This boat measures 133 x 19.5 x 50 inches when fully inflated.
It has two air chambers for safety. In the rare case it does get punctured, you still have plenty of time to get to shore before you have to worry about swimming.
The Intex Seahawk 4 boat set includes two fishing rod holders, two welded oarlocks and oar holders on board. Oars and an inflation pump are also a part of the package and included with your purchase.
This inflatable boat is able to hold up to 814 pounds. This means you can carry all the people you want and the gear that you will need on your adventure. It is Coast Guard approved so that you can feel confident when out on the water.
If you compare the Seahawk with other inflatables, you will notice that there is a lot of space on this boat. Whereas inflatable kayaks are only large enough for one or two people, this boat can hold 4 and supplies. An inflatable kayak is much more narrow and there is a potential for it to flip over in the water with you on board. The Seahawk is built to provide stability. This is especially true if you upgrade the floor and include plywood to it as an Intex Seahawk 4 review states you should. Many say that when they added wood to the floor of it, they felt safe enough to stand up and cast while on board.
This boat may not be the best thing to take white water rafting and it may fall short if you are hoping to go fishing in the ocean, but it is very versatile according to most owners. Most say this because it is a boat that is so easily upgraded. If you are not a fan of paddling, even though it is easy to paddle, you can upgrade the boat to accommodate a motor. You can find an Intex motor mount kit and the Intex Seahawk 4 motor online. With these items on board, you will have a motorized boat for less than $300. That is a pretty hard deal to resist according to Seahawk 4 owners. More On Intex Seahawk 4⇒
