Wavewalk is now offering its W500 and W570 boats in white too.
This is an unusual color for a fishing kayak, since most of these products are rotationally molded from Polyethylene, and roto-molding in white is harder than in other colors.
However, white is the typical color of other types of small watercraft including the following:
- Microskiffs, which are small FRP motorboats used for fishing mostly in the flats and other protected areas. Anglers looking to buy a microskiff expect to be able to get one in white.
- High-end touring kayaks that are usually molded from fiber reinforced plastics (FRP), sometimes referred to as ‘Composite’ materials. Such plastics can be reinforced with glass fiber, carbon fiber, and Kevlar. In many cases, the bottom part of such kayaks is white and the top part is of another color.
- Dinghies, both roto-molded and FRP, that serve as tenders (service and rescue boats) for large boats and yachts. People who own a large boat or a yacht and consider buying a dinghy to serve as a tender for their boat expect to be able to get one in white.
- Sailboats are often white, and people who plan to sail their W may prefer to get it in white.
