First test for my motorized S4 in the back bays

Review of Wavewalk S4 motorized fishing kayak with 2.5 HP outboard, Maryland

By Lemuel (Lee) Houston


I took it out this morning and I have to tell ya , I love this thing . Totally awesome . It handles very well and the Suzuki 2.5 hp four stroke is perfect for me to utilize when I’m exhausted from paddling . I think my son has decided to sell his [brand name SOT] kayak and is seriously considering a Wavewalk 🙂

  1. Whoa! What a fine looking boat! 🙂

    Thanks Lee, your setup looks very cozy, and most appropriate for paddling, driving, and fishing.
    This boat is a beauty, if I may say so.


  2. Congrats on the new S4.

    Yep, once you get tired from paddling, the motor is a great tool.

    In fact, motor more paddle less. 🙂

    I’ll motor close to where I want to fish, then paddle the rest of the way or to adjust position.

    Or troll some lures as you motor along, my Yamaha can troll as low as 1 mile per hour and not stall.
    Most useful in the salt water fishing and trolling for trout. 🙂

    Love your seats, very clever, and the rod holder too.

    I love how the Wavewalk family keeps showing pictures of how they set up their wavewalks.

    It’s a great asset having this blog, lots of great ideas on what you can do to set up your Wavewalk the way you want it, cut out mistakes before they happen.

    Tight Lines and MoPaddle safe all.

  3. 1 mph is very slow – perfect for trolling. Some anglers who use more powerful motors for trolling need to find ways to slow them down, usually by dragging something in the water, such as a bucket…
