Jeff Got a Big Cardboard Box, With His New W500 Fishing Kayak in it

-“The phone rang, and it was the driver from the trucking company, a very nice gentleman. I asked him to meet me right downtown three blocks since his huge semi would have had issues on the old narrow brick streets. Same great service as before, this trucking firm was wonderful to deal with.”

“So here are a few first pictures. This is so hard to type since my hands are quivering in the anticipation of paddling this beauty and of course pulling fish over the side.”

“This is one pretty boat Yoav, a real masterpiece. Please extend my thanks to the entire Wavewalk Team up there.

    Tomorrow I’ll do the rigging. Anchor trolley and all the other stuff.
    Of course I’ll be shooting pictures the whole time.

    Hey John, I don’t think I’ll be doing any paint scheme on the boat in the near future. I do of course have my signature on each end on top of the deck in metalic silver. My first task is rigging. Any of that I do here is all done keeping in mind saltwater fish are very powerful. A five pound jack will spin you around and go every direction you don’t want it to before you get it to the boat. So we rig in a manner that there is nothing hanging off or over anyplace. The side paddle holders will be rigged drop in like my 300 boats. That way we don’t even have to set it across the gunnels sticking out either side. Your tiger stripes would be great here for helping the jet ski crazy folks to see you before impact. I just don’t know how long they would last in the intense sun we have. The hat I’m wearing in the photos is one of my W hats that was dark navy blue when it was new. Now it’s sort of light slate grey, all sun fading.
