Looks good – Comfortable and stable 🙂
Hey Vadim………I’m wondering how much it weighs, and how easy it turns with those keels on the bottom of the hulls??
Fiberglass is heavier than Polyethylene, and those keels may be there to improve sailing performance.
I was wondering if it’s glass over wood or glassed within a mold.
It looks like glass with a mold. Making a mold for cold molding isn’t that hard, if you use Styrofoam.
Looks like it could use a paint job. I don’t think it would pass muster in the Wavewalk lineup. I’m a bit surprised you included it in your blog, Yoav.
I like it when people create their DIY Wavewalk. Their work doesn’t always looks as good a boat made in the factory, but it’s still interesting to see.
As Oscar Wilde would put it “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.”
Practically speaking, it’s impossible for Vadim and the majority of anglers in Russia to get an original Wavewalk, and since he wanted one, he built it with his own hands, and I applaud him for this.
