Wavewalk 700 with an outboard gas motor, and with an electric trolling motor

By Joe Stauder


We took our W700 Demo unit out and had a blast running our little Honda 2hp (gas) & our 36lb thrust electric around.
This is the only kayak I know of that has the ability to be used with a paddle, or an electric trolling motor, or a gas out board for propulsion.


My son just loves to paddle, and as we all get older a little help getting back to the launch with an electric or gas outboard sure comes in handy.

  1. Awesome pictures!!

    Thanks Joe,

    Your boats looks great, and you guys look great, but your dog steals the show, naturally 😀


  2. Joe,

    The dog definitely takes the show but the rest of the story is the two horses in the stern. I am presently modding out a 2.5 HP Merc 2 stroke that I picked up for a hundred bucks.

    It weighs less than 30 lbs. Thus, it is easy to lift off to flush in the barrel at the end of the day.

    Enjoy that less-corrosive fresh water environment. Great pics.

  3. $100 for an outboard motor is a great deal, even if it’s a 2-stroke.
    Let’s hope it works 🙂

  4. Yoav,

    The rest of the story is that I was looking for a small outboard for a second (less scary) mobile display.

    After a lot of homework: the 2.5 – 3.5 two stroke Nissans, Mariners, and Mercury outboards a few years back were all made by Tohatsu.

    The engines are the same but the HP is upped by a shorter throttle screw in the carb.

    I’ve got a new (higher HP) carb, fresh impeller, and an aluminum prop being shipped.

    The 3.3 Mercury 2 stroke outboard is still being distributed outside of the U.S. In addition to lightweight, It is the most simple and easy to work on outboard motor that I have ever seen.

    So much for mechanical trivia…

    However, if anyone can find a water pump pulley (part # 740748M2) for a Perkins 6.354T diesel engine I would be very thankful.

  5. Larry,

    So you got yourself a wolf in a sheep’s clothing! 😀


  6. Wow, beautiful pictures. 🙂

    Now that’s what I call Fun!

    Tight Lines and MoPaddle safe all.
