The Wavewalk™ 700 promises to be the world’s best fishing kayak in the tandem plus solo category, whether human powered or motorized. This means it would work great for both a crew of two fishermen as for one fisherman.
In order to create such an unrivaled fishing kayak, its designers had to invent some new ways to make W catamaran kayaks in rotationally molded Polyethylene (PE).
Here’s a short computer-generated animation video that shows how the W700 is made:
We look forward to see how users of this new boat will rig it for fishing, and outfit it for other usages!
We keep talking about turning the wave walker into a robot..autonomous surface vehicle..so I don’t have to drive!…haven’t done it yet but will let you know when we do. We have lots of robotic underwater vehicles here so on the surface is easy.
Hope all is well with you and you are having a good summer.
Note this kayak is outfitted with two motor mounts – The one in the front serves for mounting scientific gear

Decided to bring the kayak to Mammoth Lakes, CA for a few days. I also hauled along my electric trolling motor, only to discover that motors are not allowed on the lake I was fishing in. Will test out down here locally. I used Kayak and caught fish out of it. Forgot camera the day I caught most of the fish…but got some nice shots of bow out on the water and snow covered mountains. No problem with the kayak at on waters 8892 feet elevation.

People always have to ask about the W fishing kayak… and I tell them to get one. I now have rigged a Minn Kota electric trolling motor that works great for positioning an runs to a spot or back to dock.
