3 guys in a motorized Wavewalk S4 in the ocean chop

3 guys in a Wavewalk S4 motor tandem kayak skiff

  • Location: Narragansett bay, Rhode Island
  • Vessel: Wavewalk S4 motor kayak skiff, the world’s most stable kayak
  • Engine: 6 HP Tohatsu outboard motor (going full throttle)
  • Total Payload: 600 lbs including passengers and motor.
  • Crew: Two passengers sitting and the driver is standing up.
  • Water condition: Choppy, and fit only for seaworthy boats
  • Accessories: The two seated passengers are riding a standard S4 saddle seat outfitted with a part that makes it 6″ higher, namely 21″ high. This higher saddle seat offers a sitting position that’s more like riding a horse than riding the saddle seat of a personal watercraft (PWC – “jet-ski”).
  • Everyone on board is perfectly stable and comfortable, having a great time, and wishing they had a more powerful motor…
  • In order to further protect the front passenger from spray generated  when the boat smashes into waves, the crew raise the bow by sitting closer to the stern.

  1. A boat weighing 100 lbs carrying 600 lbs of payload in rough water – Not bad, eh? 🙂
