Today is my birthday, so I took off from work and got out to play a little bit. Of course I had to take a little detour and hang out on Little Munyon Island for just a minute! I upgraded to a 9.8 Nissan outboard motor, and the thing does so good with it. I stiffened my transom a little bit too.

Candy and I had friends visit from North Carolina, and we took them over to Peanut Island, and hung out for the day. What a blast! We went all four of us in the boat. We had to go slow but it works fine. It was only about a half mile ride over. We had probably a little over 700 lbs of payload on board.
Skiff, sun, fun…

I got my Wavewalk S4 from capt Larry and love it. I am a former Navy SEAL and have ridden many hours in inflatable boats, so I appreciate the stability and comfort of my S4, and I volunteered to be a local demo agent for it. I rigged my Wavewalk for lobster fishing, and I am currently rigging it for diving.
