I bought my Eclipes Sealion (plastic) used about 7 years ago. I have no idea how old it is? From the other posts on this site, I am guessing 15-20 years old. I like it a lot and would give it high marks. The rudder works great, I think it is fast enough and tracks very well. I just ordered a back band to replace the back rest. The guy that had it before me was shorter than me (I'm 6.2) and he cut down the back rest to be shorter. It causes me back pain after about 1.5 hours in the seat. I think with the new back strap that I can adjust, I will be good to go for much longer paddles.
While the boat is very heavy, I have been able to single handed load it on the top of the last three vehicles I have had. I may look for a fiberglass version in the future, it is a great boat.
