Dive Ladder for the Wavewalk 700

By Captain Larry Jarboe

Wavewalk Adventures Key Largo

Well, the Northwest wind screamed through Key Largo dropping temperatures to the low 60’s. So, I put on my knit cap and wool insulated shirt and embarked upon putting a dive ladder on the bow of my electric W700.

Five Oceans Company sells an under platform mounted stainless steel dive ladder that fits perfectly between the hulls of the Wavewalk W700.

It is great when a plan comes together but I may not be able to test it till next summer.

Our water temp has dropped to 74 degrees F.

Brrr!!!

    Thanks Larry,

    This diving ladder looks like it was made for the W700 😮

    74 F sounds pretty good to me… By “summer” I guess you mean March 😉

    PS — Today was my first day of snow shoveling.

    It’s a bit cooler up our way, Larry, with back to back cold fronts this week, and nighttime temps in the 30’s. My wife is worried about her hibiscus plants while I worry about another snook die-off.

    Happy holidays to you, Yoav and the Wavewalk world.

    Thanks Gary,

    Happy holidays to you too! 🙂

    I remember that snook die-off a few years ago due to usually cold temperatures. That was quite a surprise.

    Just to put things in proportion, here in eastern MA we’re expecting 7 F on Thursday night, and I’m sure that your friends and family in Wisconsin would not be impressed by this 😀

    I like that, it does look like it was made for the W700. 🙂

    Plus, the added hull strength bonus.

    Yep, the snow has come, our first storm of 6″, and people forget how to drive….LOL

    I just put everything away last week, tucked in the W500’s and W700, but with easy access to one W500 when warm weather allows a trip.
    Most likely wishful thinking now, the ice is forming.

    Tight Lines and MoPaddle Safe all.

    Hey Rox,

    Wishful thinking is better than the miserable apathy that one can feel after months of being surrounded by snow and ice, and no end in sight.
