Capacity, Christmas, Kids and Crates

Vermont duck hunter Bob Glandon called me yesterday to discuss how he had motorized his W500 and to see if I had any suggestions. Bob is a pretty smart guy so, other than the advantages of using a u-joint extension tiller, I really wasn’t able to offer much in terms of changes.

Not surprisingly, a discussion of boating conditions included the weather which led to how warm this past winter had been in the Northeast. I mentioned I saw people in shorts playing golf on Christmas Day on my way to Syracuse, NY. That reminded Bob that he had a taken a photo of his grandchildren, 4 of them in his W500 all at once, on the lake in Vermont on Christmas Day!

I asked if I could publish it and here it is:

4 Kids in a W500-Glandon
Christmas Day in a W500 in Vermont!

Whenever I see videos and articles about how you can add a crate to an ordinary fishing kayak I always ask myself: “If these ordinary kayaks are supposed to be so big and so roomy, why do they need crates for storage?”. They do because they are not.

If you are looking for a kayak (for hunting, fishing, photography, camping, etc) that has serious capacity, and still weighs only 6o pounds, you may want to consider a Wavewalk. Oh, and as far as stability goes, what other kayak would you put 4 of your grandchildren in?

Thanks for sharing, Bob.

ERNIE AND DIANE BALCH PUT THE NEW W700 TO THE TEST!

The video says it all, though it is mostly silent! Keep the volume up so you can hear Ernie’s brief comments about himself and his wife, Diane.

If you are a big guy, even a very big guy, the W700 will allow you to paddle and fish standing up in complete confidence! And if you are small you can still paddle this 80 pound wonder with ease.

With a total capacity of 580 pounds, it instantly changes from a single user to a true tandem kayak… just add 1 extra paddler and 1 extra paddle!

Stable beyond your dreams, ready for a 3.5 horsepower outboard motor (motor mounts available separately) and easy for one person to car top, the W700 is the solution you’ve been looking for.
