Another example that shows how stable and comfortable the S4 is.
This 330 lbs client enjoys driving the S4 in the regular position, then side-saddle with both feet in one of the boat’s hulls.
After that, he fishes the mangroves in this position, facing the side of the boat.
12km/h [7 mph] with Honda 2Hp against wind of 24km/h [15 mph]
Lots of fun except my rocky mistake to not have enough gas with me.
I got excited and let the boat run for 15km straight into the lake and realize I am out of gas.
I paddled back half the distance and got gas from shore.
Now I know… From now on I will carry enough gas with me.
Luckily I paid with just one blister on my hand.
I did come back at night and feel SUPER SAFE in it.
It is a great, fantastic boat.
(added comment) –
The S4 is SUPER, SUPER, SUPER stable. It does not sway at all.
I have been in bigger boats with V shape hulls.
Those boats don’t have the same stability on the water as the S4. The waves hammer them straight in the teeth.
The catamaran design cut the waves like a knife cuts through butter.
Definitely there is room for more HP on the S4.
It was my fist ever trip with a gas motor, I do use W500 with an electric motor but never played with gas before. Lots of fun. Now I can reach easily lots of my fishing spots.
