I managed to fit 4 people in it although it was a bit pushing it, it was a really fun wild ride. This thing can really take off, my 15 HP Yamaha was a bit overkill but really fun to drive on it. I have used it a total of 6 times, every weekend since I got it and so far no issues, this was a great deal, if I have any ussues I will come back to update.

The high-pressure air deck floor of the FKB430 KaBoat adds an extra level of comfort and rigidity. Made from the same material as inflatable stand-up paddle boards, this floor is durable and provides a solid foundation. Protect it against accidental punctures or cuts by covering it with marine carpet, vinyl flooring, or a foam yoga mat. Enjoy peace of mind knowing that your boat's floor is well-protected.

I bought this inflatable because I am looking for something sturdy and yet highly portable and it's exactly what I needed. This boat fits in the back of my car really well, I just need to take good care of deflating fully and it is easy to fold up and carry around, the carry bag works well assuming you did a job deflating, because of the heavy duty design it can sometimes be a challenege to fold if you dont do it with care. The boat feels like its really high quality and the manufacturer did a great job, it is a great looking boat.

Get ready to take your fishing to the next level with the FKB430 Fishing KaBoat. It's a true fishing machine that combines functionality and convenience. The extra-wide rub strakes along the keel and bottom tubes offer superior protection against accidental damages, giving you the freedom to navigate confidently in various environments.

I purchased the Saturn 14' FKB430 KaBoat about a month ago, and it has been the perfect fit for my weekend fishing adventures. The boat's slim profile allows for better speeds with smaller outboards. This has made my fishing trips more enjoyable and efficient. Even with a 5-6HP engine, the boat performs remarkably well.

The KaBoat also features extra wide rub strakes along the keel and bottom tubes, providing enhanced protection all around. The ability to install a motor mount in the bow section is a bonus. The FKB430 has exceeded my expectations, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys fishing.

The Saturn 14' FKB430 KaBoat is a true fishing machine. The slim profile allows it to go faster with smaller outboard motors, making it very practical for fishing. The additional features such as the extra wide rub strakes along the keel and bottom tubes and the high pressure air deck floor have elevated my fishing experience to a new level.

The boat comes with double lines of grommet lines to secure cargo on top of the tubes, and the splash guards with safety grab rope are quite helpful. The boat is made of heavy-duty PVC and heat welded seams, ensuring durability and longevity. I am very pleased with my purchase and highly recommend the FKB430 KaBoat to anyone who loves fishing.

The FKB430 KaBoat's high-pressure air deck floor offers excellent rigidity and comfort. However, it may require additional care to protect it against accidental punctures or cuts. Considering the benefits it provides, such as stability and ease of deployment, the slight maintenance required to safeguard the floor is a small price to pay for the overall exceptional performance and durability of this fishing machine.

Convenient to carry and store, although a seat would have been a nice addition to the 14' Heavy-Duty KaBoat FKB430. Overall, satisfied.

While the FKB430 KaBoat's slim profile allows for better speeds with smaller outboard motors, it may feel less stable compared to wider models. However, this slight trade-off in stability is offset by the improved maneuverability and speed you'll experience. Rest assured, with proper handling and skill, this KaBoat will provide an exciting and thrilling fishing experience.
