Keith Sylvester is a client from West Virginia whose hobby is to explore shallow rivers and creeks, and use an underwater metal detector to find objects dating back to the Civil War and even as far as the War of Independence.
Keith bought a sand colored W500 from us, and outfitted it with a 3 HP motor and a long tail surface drive –
Wavewalk did it again! I thought the 700 was the best there could be, until we got our first S4, what a great craft to motorize.
In my opinion, this craft is the Ultimate in small craft versatility. It lends itself to any kind of propulsion, paddles, electric trolling motor, and especially a small gas outboard. This thing handles like a dream. She wants to track nice and straight until you turn her, then she can turn on a dime. Now I truly didn’t get a lot of time on the water with her, because we sold her already. Bob wanted her so bad he drove up to PA. from West Virginia to get her. He is in love with his new craft, and the custom rigging we did for him.

Don Burress, a happy S4 client from West Virginia:
Here are some pictures of our Wavewalk 700 that we outfitted with a 36 lbs electric motor, and with a 2 HP Honda outboard gas motor.
This is the only kayak can be used with a paddle, or an electric trolling motor, or a gas outboard for propulsion.
As we get older it helps to have an electric or gas outboard to help us go back to the launch.
