Wed, 11/22/2017 - 09:45
I'd like to add a few connection points to the deck lines. I'd like to maybe add at least one or two more sets. I tried just tying knots but didn't really like that so I want to add some hardware. I was thinking of just mounting them flush like at ...

Strip Emergency hole covering

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 04:46
I see in several posts it is recommended to carry some duct tape in one's emergency kit. I am sure most of you have seen the "Flex Steel" commercials on TV where the guy slaps a patch on a pipe with water running out of it ???? Has anyone had any experience with this stuff ? My wife said it ...

Many moons ago I saw an article somewhere on hatch construction that I can no longer find - anywhere. I have searched this site and the internet and all you-tubes I can find to no avail. I will tell you what "I think" I remember and maybe someone can point me in the right direction. Used clear ...

Other Removing Factory Seat

Wed, 11/15/2017 - 13:15
Do seats generally provide any sort of structural component to a boat? I hate the composite seat that came with my boat and was planning to remove it and replace it with a handmade foam seat but the sides of the kayak are "pinched" in to attach/reach to the seat. I wasn't sure if this was for ...

Epoxy: laying cloth over 'tacky' epoxy?

Mon, 10/30/2017 - 12:24
I think I remember reading here that someone let the epoxy coat get tacky before laying a cloth on a paddle to help it to conform around the edge of the paddle. I think I also remember reading somewhere that a second coat of epoxy had to wait until the first was no longer tacky or problems would ...

Material 5/4 Rough Western Red Cedar -- best approach?

Fri, 10/27/2017 - 05:54
Turns out my local yard does have Western Red Cedar. It is 5/4 x 6 rough at 16+ feet long. So, am I better off planing to 3/4 and cutting 3/16" strips, or ripping to 3/4 strips, rotating, and cutting 3/16" strips from there?
