How to Follow the Instructions:
As you watch the video, you can read the main points below. There are also photos and video caption times to help you keep your place. PAUSE and PLAY as you go.
- (0:10) Today I’m going to demonstrate how to set up the world’s first, high performance, all drop stitch, patent pending Sea Eagle Inflatable Travel Canoe.
- (0:20) Unpack the canoe and accessories.
- (0:30) There are 3 recessed air valves in the rear of the canoe. One for the floor, and one for each side chamber.
- (0:37~0:50) Remove the cap and press and turn the valve stem a ¼ turn to the left until it pops up. It is now ready to retain air. (Since this is a one-way valve, air can go in but not come out. When the valve is in the down position, air can go in and out) Never use tools like pliers on the air valves as this may damage the valves.
- (0:54~1:20) Open the floor drains to remove water if you cannot flip the canoe over to drain out water (ex: if your canoe is full of camping gear) To open the floor drains, unscrew the caps and tuck them under the floor to stop them from flipping closed.
- (1:25) High volume, high pressure piston pump: attach the inline pressure gauge to the handle of the pump where it says “INFLATE.”
- (1:42) Attach the pump hose to the pressure gauge.
- (1:50~2:20) Place the hose adaptor into one of the 3 air valves of the kayak. Turn to the right until it’s tight. There is no particular order for inflating the Travel Canoe. Inflate all 3 chambers to 10 PSI (69 kPa). Only use Sea Eagle approved pumps. Never use an air compressor.
- (2:23) Sea Eagle also has electric pumps. Set the dial to 10 PSI and press the ON button. It will automatically shut off when it reaches the desired pressure.
- (2:57) Replace the 3 air valve caps and tighten the 4 floor drains.
- (3:05) Inflate the canoe seats up to 3 PSI depending on how firm and how high you want to sit.
- (3:22) Clip the seat straps onto the D-rings and pull the strap end to make it shorter. Adjust as you like.
- (3:40) The Travel Canoe can be used with 1, 2, or 3 seats.
- (3:50) Two-part adjustable canoe paddles (from 122~152 cm): Press on the button to lengthen the paddle handle.
- (4:18 a,b) The Travel Canoe comes with a removable rear skeg that can be used to improve tracking (helps you to go in a straight line). Flip the Travel Canoe over. Slide in the skeg and clip.
- (4:47) Because of its patent pending design, the Sea Eagle Travel Canoe can be inflated up to 10 PSI (69 kPa) resulting in a much sleeker, rigid, contoured shape that is incredibly faster, lighter, and higher performing than any other inflatable canoe on the market!
- (5:02) Click on the accessories tab for the fishing accessories Sea Eagle Japan has to offer.
- (5:10 a,b) Packing up is quick and easy.
- Remove the seats.
- To deflate, remove the valve caps and push and turn the valve stem ¼ turn to the right. Make sure your eyes and face are not directly over the valve.
- (5:56) Fold the length of the canoe in half. Make sure the skeg base is flat.
- (6:00a~c) Make your next fold just behind the Sea Eagle logo at the front of the canoe. Continue folding the canoe to the rear two more folds. For the last fold, flip the rear end over the rest of the canoe.
- (6:33) Be sure not to put too much pressure one the front and back plastic molds as this could damage the canoe.
- (6:40) Notice that the two plastic molds are off set (not on top of each other). This is how the canoe should be stored to relieve pressure off the molds.
- (6:52 a~c) Lay-out the Travel Canoe bag, and roll the canoe onto it. The seats, paddles, and pump all fit into the bag.
Have fun paddling in your new Sea Eagle canoe!
