Dolly and storage system for my Wavewalk S4

By Noah P.

I wish this was a report on the first trip down the river with the S4 but its not. I had planned to take it out today but we had a pretty strong wind heading upriver most of the day. I have seen people have trouble going down the river with regular kayaks when the headwind was strong, so I figured that I should wait for a later time for my first trip.

I have a 5hp long shaft Honda on order. I was going to go with a Tohatsu but the Honda dealer is local and the Tohatsu dealer is 90 miles away.

I’m attaching a few pictures of what I have been working on as far as a dolly and storage. I bought a C-Tug kayak dolly not knowing if it would work or not but the S4 fits just fine and hauls well.
I attached a couple pulleys to hoist the S4 to the top of the storage cover. I left the C-Tug wheels attached so when I lower it I can just tighten the strap on the dolly and its ready to go.
Finally I put a tarp over the opening to keep the wasps and other critters from setting up a home on the inside.

    Thank you Noah,

    Looks good!

    You shouldn’t have a problem paddling in strong wind, using this method that’s unique to Wavewalk kayaks: http://wavewalk.com/blog/strong-wind/

    Nice job, and you’ll be happier with the Honda.

    I’ve heard a lot of people complain on the effects of the ethanol on their carbs.

    That 5hp will take you anywhere. 🙂
