Wavewalk 700 review and dock launching system

By Jeff Goldstein

New York

I added bridles to the front and rear of each boat to ease launching.
I bring the Wavewalk to the ladder, hold the rope around the ladder and climb down. The boat is so stable that it’s very easy for me to get in and out without any fear of tipping.
I had my son and son in law in the boat, both close to 240lbs each.

Attached are photos of how I set up my dock.
I purchased the roller which is about 5′ long from a dock roller company called Ryano. The hardware is all galvanized and the roller is 6″ diameter. I got 20′ long Python locks (made by Master Lock) and screwed a stainless eye hook into each pole which are 8′ on center apart.
The cable lock secures the Wavewalk so it can’t move in the wind and is theft resistant.

    Thanks Jeff,

    Looks really good!
    A simple and effective setup.
    It must be fun to launch this way. I believe it qualifies as “seal launching” 🙂

    Glad to hear that you guys are having a good time with your new W700s,

    Yoav
