This deep water reentry demo video is long overdue –
The footage was contributed a few years ago by Berny Marsden from the UK, who designed and built a DIY wooden stitch-and-glue Wavewalk, with some help from Wavewalk’s design team 🙂
Berny named his DIY Wavewalk “Banana Split”, and his boat’s dimensions and load capacity are comparable to those of the 700 series.
In this video, Berny hops into the cockpit directly, in a straight angle.
It’s also possible to get in from a sharper angle, in a position that’s more aligned with the boat, as well as climb in from the rear.
Note that if there is some water in one of the hulls, the extra weight on that side can make reentry easier if you do it from the other, lighter side.
We’ve decided to publish this video for the benefit of our clients who dive and practice spear fishing.
