Here are a few photos of Ernie, the latest customer for New York Fishing Kayaks, gliding along on a scenic waterway near Saratoga Lake, NY. Ernie and his wife already have several power boats, canoes and kayaks, but he test paddled a Wavewalk and took it home that same day.
Because Ernie is a big guy he knew he should add saddle brackets, which he did. But he didn’t buy them, he made them himself. This is well within his ability as Ernie is a professional sign maker (Balchsigns.com) with CNC equipment and expertise in fabrication.
It’s hard to see in the pictures but his fishing crate and attached bungee are color-matched to his Wavewalk. Later he plans to add a custom paint job and various other modifications. I expect they will be outstanding!
His first words of feedback after using it for 3 days were: “Not wet footing is nice”. I think this will mean even more when the water temperatures drop this fall and are in the 40’s next spring.
Photos were taken by his wife, Diane who handles the decal, lettering and promotional products side of the business.
