What's in the Box
The air pump is electric and works from a car lighter. It is especially convenient when there is no access to a stationary power net. It is supplied with a pressure sensor which helps control the process of pumping up to a certain mark.

This inflatable boat is good for 2 persons fishing, especially 1 adult and 1 kid. Its lightweight allow me to carry it with one hand. I load it on the roof of a minivan for short trips, so it can stay inflated for most of time. It takes me about 15 mins to inflate it using the hand pump.
Due to the size of the inflatable boat is far more than kayaks, most of tie-down straps on the market are too short to tie it on the roof of vehicles. Concatenating 2 straps works fine for me.
When properly inflated, the hull and floor is rigid and stable on water. A 3 HP electrical outboard can drive it to a little more than 5 mph with 1 person and fishing gears. The maximum wind speed I can live with this tender is about 12 mph.
The build quality is pretty good. IMO it's on par with other well known brands. Can't say about longevity due to short ownership. But I learnt someone use it daily in a bay for more than 1 year and no issue so far.
The lightwight comes at the cost of very limited accessory and protection, such as extra D-rings and rubber belt at the bottom. It's OK for me since aftermarket D-ring and fishing rod holders can be purchased/installed later.
Anyone using it for fishing should be very cautious to prevent fish contacting any part of the boat. Fish fin can easily punch holes on it. A small porgy leave 2 holes on the air floor on my second trip. Fixing is trivial using PVC glue.
