The journey to the Mountain Lakes in the Swedish Laplands starts with an eager outdoors man, his Saturn Inflatable KaBoat 430 and some traditional outdoor equipment. He must carry all his equipment by hand and even has to wade through rapids in areas that are to harsh. In the video you can see the man trekking through the woods with his lightweight inflatable KaBoat being held above his head. Once he makes it to an acceptable part of the river he loads his equipment and begins his journey.
The 5 hp Yamaha engine gives him super fast speeds with his narrow Saturn KaBoat to get to his first resting place. Again the man lifts the inflatable boat above his head and makes it through a patch of forest to even more intense rapids that he must walk his boat and equipment past. Then he his back on the water ripping through the currents with his narrow KaBoat and 5 hp engine.
Eventually the river opens up and the rapids disappear. The beautiful mountainous background quickly becomes apparent. It looks like a good time for the man to take a break and enjoy some well-earned fishing at his newly discovered location. Grayling is the most common type of fish in this area and the man quickly makes his first catch though he just as quickly states his preference for trout.
Once back on the water he ventures towards the gorgeous snowy mountain tops that so few get to see. He gets there quickly with his trusty KaBoat in waters that would normally hamper most dinghies.
Upon entering the next level of valley, the docile and serene setting make it the perfect place to stop and set up shop and take another short break. The man rests his equipment and sparks up a pipe to the sound of birds chirping amount and otherwise silent environment. He takes a moment to study the light shadows of some passing fluffy clouds, and then it's back on his journey.
He gives himself a soft row into the lake from the shore where he was resting. The scene of mirror like water between the mountains reaching into the heavens is just too mythical not to take notice. And with that the venturous man cranks up the engine and begins to make his splash in the untouched environment.
At the far end of the lakes a small mountainous river flows into the lakes. Again our wanderer tries his chances with fishing. And with that there is a reward that highlights his trip; an Arctic Char, the most delicious fish there is grabs the bait and in on the hook. The video action of this fish is amazing; showing the fishes colors waving like a flag as it fights to stay in the river. Our resourceful journeyman makes quick use of fire to cook his fresh catch right there on the spot.
After this is a sort of boaters siesta as the man slowly rows around his tranquil settings. Stunning view after stunning view is caught on his camera as he makes his way out of the peaceful lakes and back towards the rapids.
His journey was great and as he makes his way down the path that lead him there he must feel content with an amazing day in the natural Lapland lakes of Sweden. It's time to leave these wonderful scenes and go back. His Saturn KaBoat makes it even faster to descend down the rapids as it did to arrive. And with that there is one more exceptional day in the history of our journeyman.
Many firefighters spend weeks in the water perfecting their flood rescue techniques like the Enid Fire Department. After major flooding in May, the departments Training Officer said the department needed a new Saturn inflatable rescue boat to perform their duties. This is because firefighters were called to rescue at least five motorists from floodwaters during the spring storms.
Baker was quoted as being currently "training" using several methodas of flood water rescue to attend to victims in future floods. As the weeks comenced the firefighters partook in many training exercises to hone in their skills.
In one exercise firefighters used a Saturn inflatable raft and net to rool simulated victims from the water and into the boat.
Assistant Fire Marshal Todd Hays says that rescue efforts are "putting our rescuers' lives at risk" and specifically referred to the last season when motorists were driving around barricades and becoming stranded in floodwaters. He says "we put our lives at risk as well as the victim."
There are now new laws in effect now that prevent drivers from passing government barricades of closed roads. But just in case motorists do, and end up stranded as a result, the firefighter department in Enid Oklahoma has purchased a new Saturn Kaboat for rescue efforts.
Introducing the KaBoat - The Unique Crossover Between an Inflatable Kayak and a Boat.
Saturn Inflatables announcing release of a brand new head-turning futuristic inflatable vessel called KaBoat, an innovative crossover between a Kayak and a Boat and it's the newest and coolest way to get you on the water on a budget.
KaBoat creates the best of both worlds from kayaking and boating, and delivers them in a sexy new design. The slim hull modeled after narrow Asian Dragon boats is what lets the KaBoat glide effortlessly over water at speeds faster than traditional boats.
The eco-friendly, narrow hull KaBoat uses less energy to propel itself through the water and therefore it is an ideal vessel to use with electric outboard motors, making it a truly green and ecologically friendly vessel for 21st Century.
The KaBoat is also extremely portable and small when deflated, so it can fit into the trunk of even the smallest car. The KaBoat can be used for sailing, rowing and paddling, as well as with gas or electric outboard motors. Use the kayaking or rowing oars short distances or in shallow waters, then simply attach the outboard motor when you want to travel longer distances.
KaBoat is a whole lot of boat for a little bit of money. KaBoats come in 4 sizes: 12’, 14’, 15’ and an extra large 16’ monster. They are affordable and available to anyone who wants to get on water on a budget. KaBoat is truly a boat for the masses! Prices start at only $525 and go up to $875 for the 16’ extra-long version.
The KaBoat is a new, unique invention that should be owned by every fisherman and water sports enthusiast.

We offer Saturn dinghies, tenders, large inflatables boats and roll-ups. Do you intend to use inflatable boats as a dinghy, tender, fishing, diving, hunting, or just weekend gateway? Then it is important that your boat will be capable of rolling up.
A well constructed inflatable boat hull should be light, easy to maintain and repair. The high performance roll-up Saturn inflatable boat is designed with ease of storage and a low overall weight in mind.
Saturn inflatable boats models with drop-stitch air floors can be rolled up and stored with the floor system still inside the boat. Assembly is as simple as to inflate the boat and a floor. If you buy Saturn, you are buying the right Inflatable Boat for you need!
The fully collapsible Saturn inflatable boat models offer a rigid floor system. The floor system is typically made of high-pressure drop-stitch fabric, marine plywood or aluminum plates.

After an early spring inventory sell out the Kaboats are finally back in stock.
We had an unexpected spike in demand over the first few months of 2012 and our large KaBoat supply quickly ran dry. We were quite happy to see the demand, but also very paranoid about inevitably running out of stock! We did eventually watch our warehouse run dry and even with large quantities being manufactured we could not keep up with demand.
Our Kaboat is one of my personal favorites and the reasons for me are because of the speed primarily, maneuverability second and efficiency third... Oh yeah, did I mention that these things roll up to fit in the trunk of my little Hyundai Accent with a nice cooler of beer and food???
The dragon boat style hull and thinner than normal boat design make for a boat that flies through the water using less horse power than those of you using dingies and rafts. Since it's less wide it simply goes into better spots in our local mangroves and is easy to maneuver where ever I go. Try rowing a full size dingy and get back to me!
The Kaboat is just a super cool boat and my boat of choice for just getting on the water and having a good time. Since I work here I should say that it is absolutely awesome for fishing and can get you from here to there faster, quieter and with more freedom than peoples other options.
And something else I can't forget to mention... The design of this boat is very rugged and stable; as stable as a full size inflatable. Yes, it's true, no kidding!
What is my favorite Kaboat you ask?
We finally did catch up on production of the KaBoats to meet the spike in demand and we now have every variety in stock. The truth is we can maintain the current ordering levels but if there is another spike we may be out of stock temporarily again. I strongly recommend this boat for a great time on the water with better speed and agility. I just love this boat, this KaBoat that is!
