Here’s a pic of my S4 under a tarp, using a “tent pole” structure I made from pvc pipes.
I put 50g fishing weights on the grommets and bungee front & back. Lots of submerged tarp, but it does the trick.
My S4 lives in the ocean… so I’m having to constantly clean algae and barnacles.
After I got my S4, I was just going slowly in circles in the bay, and then I really got to take her out and open it up.
Love the S4!! And island hopping with it.
I think it’s performing as well as it should with the Yamaha 6hp 20″ long shaft motor.
One thought on “S4 microskiff in the rain”
Looks good! 🙂
Another solution to barnacles and algae is to raise the boat out of the water after each trip, by means of a crane / winch, as this W500 client from Alaska did: https://wavewalk.com/blog/2016/06/12/staying-ahead-of-ms-and-enjoying-the-beauty-of-alaskas-coast-line/
