This has been a long process for me. I have back problems and regular kayaks “Hurt” to say the least. And the cost is not something to sneeze at especially when one is on a fixed budget as I am.
I am 6’2″, 215 pounds and a mere 70 years young. I am in great shape for an elderly feller but elderly nevertheless.
However one of my main plans is to do a fair amount of stand up fly fishing from the W kayak, although I do all types of fishing, and I will be fishing in many different types of water from mountain streams to the Gulf Coast.
I have literally studied Wavewalk’s web site and YouTube for a solid year before deciding to take the plunge and just go ahead and order one. I hate to order something like this sight unseen but there is no reasonably close dealer near me so I can look them over and possibly take a test spin. But one thing was for sure and that was a standard yak was out of the question.
To say that I am impressed would be putting it mildly!!!
I have only had it on the water twice. Once on a river and once on a lake. Both fishing trips. I am still a bit awkward but getting much more confident. Even standing (a bit tentative). Not bad for an “elderly” codger of 70 years.
I have rigged up a very simple but effective cart for rolling it over our rocky terrain around here. I have added a couple additional items to the W with pop rivets.
Thanks for all the good advice and help in selecting my W.
I will send photos and a video or two when I get it rigged the way I want it.
Thanks so much. Your boat is one of a kind.
