Wavewalk S4 motor kayak skiff high speed chase in narrow winding mangrove creek

This short movie shows Captain Larry Jarboe driving his S4 kayak skiff powered by a 9.8 HP Tohatsu outboard motor with a 6’3″ 260 lbs passenger on board, in a narrow and winding mangrove creek. The total payload carried by his S4 is over 500 lbs.
The S4 is perfectly stable and maneuvers easily despite the high speed and heavy load.

Larry is driving seated side-saddle, dinghy style, with both feet in the left hull and facing sideways, and his passenger rides the saddle PWC style, with a foot in each hull, and facing forward.

    Pretty neat, guys, except you’re scaring all the snook away

    I’ll now be waiting for the next video of the S4 speeding over the Massachusetts snow banks.

    Awesome video.

    Would love to do a trip like that in the Wavewalks.

    Can’t wait to get out up here in Ct, It’s almost time for the stripers
    to run up the Ct River, and my W700 and I will be waiting. 🙂

    Tight Lines and MoPaddle Safe All.

    Rox,

    The stripers in the Connecticut river are doomed 😀

    I must say that being stuck indoors is getting more frustrating when you have a boat that’s so much fun to drive…
