I gave this an overall good review because it was fun for the kids and it got them safely down the river. I thought it would have been more durable because the description says it is durable vinyl. My 8-year-old 64 pound daughter rode this down a calm river, over some rocks, and the bottom had holes in it. The holes were from the plastic molded pieces that you use to blow air into the raft bottom, which she had to sit on. When she went over a rock, it rubbed the plastic piece through the vinyl and made little holes. Then, the bottom wouldn't blow up. We still have the raft and plan to use it in the pool now and it didn't really affect any further trips down the river but, we were disappointed that the placement of the plastic blow parts were placed right under the butt area. Just an engineering defect, I suppose. The sides of the raft stayed fully intact and continued to provide great fun for my daughter. Her older sister, daddy and I used a tube with a mesh bottom instead and that was perfect!! (Airhead brand)
I bought this so I could float around in a swamp near my neighborhood, and it has worked wonderfully. I can pack it into my little backpack and take it there. It takes like 7 minutes to inflate with a rechargeable air mattress pump, which works wonderfully. It's also really easy and quick to deflate; just roll it up from the end furthest from the valves. I've been sliding this raft over logs in the water, and it hasn't sprung a leak yet. Seems very durable. Its one shortcoming to me is that it won't go in a straight line when I paddle with only one oar, but it's not a canoe so I can't really hold it to that standard. Using a branch as a stabilizer in the back is a great workaround.
Got this boat for a small trip rafting on very mild water. Boat worked great, even fit myself and my toddler in it. You will need to purchase oars, or you can always tie this one behind another boat like we did. Very maneuverable due to its small size.
Bought it for pool use. Very heavy, well made. Larger than anticipated inflation points but I think that's because it was meant for river use. Add .99 cent shipping and you can't go wrong.
Very small boats but good enough to get us across the river and down it. Compact and good to pack. Light weight material, will have to be careful. I hope to get years worth of floating out of these inexpensive inflatable boats.
This is a great little boat that met my expectations. I use it on a lake and to my surprise it had alot more speed that what you'd think, And i only use one paddle! My friend and I both bought this and we use it constantly. It fits in a normal backpack but yet it can hold a 5ft 10in teen male pretty comfortably although my feet hang abit.The #2 inflation valves on this boat are tricky to inflate on this though. I suggest quickly putting your thumb over the inflation things very fast, then quickly put the cap on. For $13 this little thing is great. Although it says its coleman on the website. I do not see their mark anywhere, but thats of small importance. If you want a little boat to go around in, then buy this!
P.S if you're worried about it getting a hole at the bottom put a layer or two of duck tape at the bottom while its inflated
I bought this small raft for my husband to enable him to pull his hobby boat out of the Lake. The very first day we used it on the Lake it went flat. We had to patch the flats and the raft (inflatable boat) is currently sitting in our garage. We are pulling out the hobby boat with a fishing rod. I don't recommend this product. I should have paid a little more and purchased a stronger and better quality.
I strongly do recommend the service of Walmart.
This was perfect for us. My 6 year old daughter uses it while we snorkel and tow her around.
I got this little raft so that I could carry it easily through the trails to the lake behind my house (Lanier). Where we live, it is a remote little cove. I just wanted something that would be easy to transport (in my hands, walking) down the trails about 1/4 mile behind our house. I bought the oars pkg that sold for pennies less than $10 that are pictured on the package for the raft (as the oars are not included.
We've inflated the little raft and realized that it really is just a ONE person float. That's fine, because that's really all that I wanted. I haven't put it into the water yet, but so far it meets my expectations fully. for a less than $15 inflatable boat, what would anyone expect? It's cute. I think I'll enjoy it, because I didn't buy it with unrealistic expectations. I know that you pretty much get what you pay for in life. I'm happy with it.
I bought this inflatable to carry a cooler during a long stream fishing trip. While the boat is somewhat small, it effectively served my purpose. If I was looking for something to actually ride in, it would have been too small. It did the job I intended it to do very well, however.
It is a one man inflatable boat.... it does it's job... there really isn't anything to review. I bought it for my father in law to use when he is surf casting, he keeps his cooler and bait in it. Works.
This is a cheap plastic pool toy, and in no way resembles a Coleman inflatable boat, I have no idea why the item used the Coleman name, you will not find "Coleman" anywhere on this product. I had to buy a Coleman NAVIGATOR 1-person boat on Ebay to get the quality I wanted. Booo!!!
THE BOAT THEY WILL SEND YOU IS WHITE AND ORANGE. IT IS A LITTLE SMALLER AND CHEAPER. IT IS VERY UNCOMFORTBLE BECAUSE THE AIR NOZZLE IS RIGHT WHERE YOUR LEGS GO. I HAVE THE GREY AND YELLOW BOAT FROM 2 YEARS AGO AND IT IS STILL GOING STRONG IN MY POOL. I BOUGHT THIS BOAT AND IT BROKE RIGHT AWAY!!!
Ok, first off. this is a complete waste of money, it does NOT hold one person, unless you are 7. When I got this i was so excited to go rafting on my neighbors pond. we all got a raft. first, when i got in, the boat creesed and let water in. If you want to get comfortable, to bad! You cant possibly navigate. Overall....NEVER get this raft. my sister had good luck with the two person, cause it was bigger. but unless u r 7 or under. dont. i repeat dont. ever. buy. this. raft.
This is one child, not one person. Too small for adults. The biggest problem I found is that the valves don't lock the air in. I don't understand why any inflatable would be made without locking valves, they exist, use them! I couldn't even get the plugs in the floor without all the air coming right back out. Not the place to cheap out! The valves are right where you sit, really dumb! They should be put at the foot end. Maybe Ok for the kids in the pool, but don't expect the floor to stay inflated. Returned without using.
I bought this so that I could float around the lake and relax. It says that it is a one person boat for up to 190 pounds, and while I am sure it would float with a 190 pound person, it was to small and uncomfortable for me, 160lb 5'5. My legs are short but this boat was too short for me. And getting into it made water flow in from the sides. I would recommend this boat for children and not adults. It is a good value if you have children. I took it back to the store and bought the four person boat for me and my hubby. We fit it great.
We have had alot of fun with this boat. It is the perfect size for our pool. Our dogs love floating around in the pool inside the boat.
excellent value. Sturdy
I have had both this one-person boat and the two-person boat since 2008 and have taken them on relaxing tubing trips at least 10 times and have had absolutely no problems out of either one. Occasionally there were some small rapids that they both handled great. The plastic pieces where you put the air in stay closed the entire time (unlike some of my friends that bought some newer versions of this boat and they kept on popping open and would not recess into the boat). I definitely recommend having an electric pump that you can plug into your car to blow it up.
I ordered it on a Monday, and got it two days later on Tuesday!!! Im a little on the bigger side and I fit perfectly. It's not roomy, but it does fit me perfectly. It was also very cheap. I'm going to the beach and got my paddles on a different website. I can't wait to use it with my family and friends. I also enjoy the ropes so for younger kids who can't use paddles as well can get pulled around and you won't be damaging the boat. For someone looking for a good time, this is perfect!!!!!
