Excellent for Price

Pros: price, quality of boat itself, aluminum floor
Cons: cheap oars & pump, useless seat
" Bought this a few months ago and have used it around 10 times.
A few comments based on previous reviews:
- mine's rated for 6 hp
- didn't come with any carrying bags but did come with a bag that hangs under the seat to keep the air pump stored.
- seat is useless. Was a pain to install then fell out first time out. Maybe I did something wrong but it seems pretty straight forward.
- the floor is great
- the oar holder things are too small to fit the supplied oars
- the oars are already each broken. I rarely use them so it's not really a concern, but don't plan on keeping them long.
- foot step thing on pump broke
- boat porpoises badly with 2 or 3 people aboard but is fine when solo. Also very difficult to get on plane with 2 people, despite running a 9.9 (yes it's overpowered, don't do this at home). I'm hoping a hydrofoil stabilizer (whale tail) on the motor will cure this. Top speed on GPS with the 9.9 was about 25 mph, plenty quick and a bit of a squirrely ride.
Overall, I still gave it 5 stars even though I seem to have listed a number of complaints. Reason is, it seems like a well-built boat with features only found in much more expensive models. Dollar for dollar, even after replacing the cheap accessories, I think it's a great purchase. "

Excellent Purchase

Pros: low cost, hp capability, load capability
Cons: 2 people needed to install aluminum floor boards
" We bought the Coleman inflatable boat as a dinghy for our sailboat. The boat arrived very quickly and all parts were well packed. It is better than expected with a high buoyancy and a 10 Hp capability. This Coleman is as good as any big name brand inflatable boat and cheaper. "

Better than expected

" I agree with canadianosprey, Verry fast delivery ect... I was hesitent to buy this because of the Reinforced, double layer flat bottom, as mention in the web site. But surprise it's an inflatable keel. So it's much better than advertised. "

a little supprise

" I received this item today, a little supprise to me:
1. it takes only 3 days from ordering to receiving;
2.the floor is not "slot" as mentioned in this web site, it is "solid alumnum floor", much better than old fashined slot floor;
3. max power: 7.5W/10 HP, instead of 5HP as mentioned in this web;(maybe the different law between Canada and U.S ?)
4. two separate carry bags, one for the boat and the other for the floor and accessories;
the only things which I don't like is that the weight of the combination is 106 lbs instead of 84 lbs as mentioned in this web.
anyway, I , will test this boat the weekend and will leave more words lately. "
