The 3.4m size has definitely been a limiting factor as far as the length of my trips go. Since there is only so much space for fuel, my round trip distances have always been very short (typically 80-140km).

It can easily be carried in the bag by one person. But once inflated weight is not the issue it's just a bit bulkier and difficult to carry to the water by one person. Strape the engine on and you definatly need two people
What I usually do when on my own, is carry the folded boat to the water edge, inflate it, then stand it on edge & carry it into the water a few feet (far enough that you can wade in with the outboard and mount it on a floating transom) Keep a tether/anchoring rope tied to shore while doing this just in case. Next I load the fuel tanks and then the fishing/camping/hunting gear.
