I mounted 6 hp Mercury on my S4, and I took it for a drive around Grande Isle, in the gulf. There was a 12 mph wind blowing, and the water was choppy and sometimes rough, but the S4 handled it perfectly. This boat always has enough free board, and it’s very responsive. I found that thanks to the S4’s extreme stability and generous free board, I can drive it faster in rough water than other microskiffs I’ve driven.
Launching it and taking out is so easy!
The S4 is very comfortable to drive. After several hours in it I had no back problem, knee problems, or any other problem, and this is something I can’t say about my [one person] skiff, which is painful to drive and fish from.
