Sailing the Wavewalk 500 catamaran kayak

I just found this video that Jim Luckett posted on YouTube over a year ago:

My two cents:
Looks cool and comfy.
I think sailing an S4 with a sail this size would not require outriggers. Maybe just one or two dagger boards. You’re most likely to have to use a tiller, unless you rig the S4 as a sailing board, and sail it this way. You can stand with both feet in one hull. The more I think of it, the more the latter makes sense.
Fifteen years ago, I sailed the little W300 with a DIY crab claw rig, standing, and with no tiller. It was fun.

Guided Boat Tours in Key Largo

Great news for tourists in Key Largo!

Captain Larry Jarboe just added to his fleet the new Wavewalk Express, a comfortable aluminum catamaran with room for half a dozen passengers on its spacious deck.

Larry has decades of experience in guiding boat tours, and he offers exclusive excursions including tours at sunset, and tours on both sides of Key Largo, namely the ocean, mangroves, parks and nature reserves.

Activities include watching the sunset, dolphins, manatees, fish etc, as well as driving through the mangrove maze in combination with Wavewalk S4 and W700 kayaks, and without them.

200 lbs of Blue Catfish in my S4 “kayak”

By Captain Larry Jarboe

I took an S4 with me on a trip to my native Maryland, and today, I launched it out of our Nation’s newest marine sanctuary at Mallows Bay.
I fished the Potomac channel’s edge for the invasive Blue Catfish which taste very good. Right off, they started slamming the baits. I started taking video but the GoPro did not respond as it usually does. After some frustration, I put on my reading glasses to see no SD card displayed in fine print. Aaargh. Needless to say, I kept on fishing and caught over 200 lbs. of catfish in less than 3 hours. A couple are plus 20 pounders. The proof is in the pic taken from another camera. I don’t have a cooler big enough so they are packed on ice inside the S4 for distribution tomorrow morn.
