Other rudders SeaLect Tru Course and KS-Navigator ? *PIC*

Sat, 11/25/2017 - 08:23
Has anybody used either the SeaLect Tru Course or KajakSport-Navigator rudder? These are both 'slide up on the deck' (90 degree rotation) rudders. Do either of them allow 'kick up' if kelp or harder objects are hit?

Other Loop Track Anchor

Wed, 11/22/2017 - 09:52
I love these things: https://northwater.com/collections/on-board-storage-systems/products/loop-track-anchor Do you think it'd be possible to make these with some fiberglass/epoxy and webbing? Does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to go about this? It'd need to be strong enough to ...

Other Deckline Hardware

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 ...

Strip Hatch cover

Sat, 11/18/2017 - 04:09
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 ...

Shop Dynel Tape?

Fri, 11/10/2017 - 14:27
I've fallen in love with Dynel and only need a couple long 2" strips. Does anyone know somewhere that sells Dynel tape? I've done lots of google searching and would have to order 55"x7yrds and cut strips. If not, does it come available from time-to-time or should I just use the ...
