Took my W700 to Hilo bay and to the river. Just paddling, no fishing today. Recreation on the Kayak without fishing suites me fine, and I left my fishing rod on the bottom of the boat. I shot a video in the choppy waters. It was a fun day on the waters, but for only about 4 hours. The sun was a bit harsh.
Here is the video and some pictures,
[ADDED LATER] –
“…I felt safe that day on the waters. The beginning of the voyage I paddled the protected part of the Bay behind the 3 mile jetty. The W700 performed very well. It will take you the distance even at an easy pace.
Eventually I decided to take on the unprotected coast line. So I got out there so far and decided to take a break and have a snack. Heading back I was fighting quite a bit of chop and swell. So I decided to kick it in gear and paddle hard so it wouldn’t take forever to get back. The W700 is amazing. It will pick up and go.”
