Strip Deck / hull attach

Wed, 12/27/2017 - 02:58
Somewhere buried in this forum is either a drawing or photo of 'something' hot glued to a kayak and then a wedge used to align the deck/hull for glassing. I have searched everything I can think of to no avail. Does anyone remember this and can you give me a clue to its location ? Thank you

Other Matunuck surf kayak

Sat, 12/23/2017 - 10:25
Hello all! I am a fairly experienced sea kayaker and love the swell and surfing small/medium waves. Now I found this nice design of the Matunuck surf kayak on Nick's homepage and was wondering if you have any experiences in paddling it and building it? I am slightly bigger than the "average" ...

Strip Fiberglass patch

Sat, 12/16/2017 - 13:07
The fiberglass (FG) on my 3 y/o strip kayak has worn through just in front of the cockpit, probably from the nylon release strap on the cover used during transport. After sanding and cleaning the area to be repaired, can I merely add more fiberglass and resin to the area, or do I need to remove a ...

Strip Vancouver Island

Sat, 12/16/2017 - 03:35
I just searched the Trips Forum section of this site for Vancouver Island and got nothing. That forum does not seem to get as much traffic as the builders forum so I will post here. Two years ago Jane and I spent two weeks on the island, one week exploring and one week on The Mother Ship kayaking ...

Strip Drinking water access

Fri, 12/15/2017 - 12:36
I am about ready to join the deck/hull of a Petrel for my wife. At her request I need to include a "camel back" type of water bag. In the few years I have been on this forum I don't remember anyone talking about doing this. I have the bag/tube assembly. The tube is 1/4" I.D. plastic covered ...

Hello all, I'm getting ready to build a sof canoe. Not my first boat build, but my first sof. I'm having trouble finding air dried white oak. I have been talking with a saw mill that is cutting a white oak next week and I can get what I need rough cut. It's a green tree. Anyone ever use ...

In another thread, Jay Babina said: I've struggled to explain why some of my more 'rugged' and 'solidly built' boats are desirable. (The 'just another layer of glass' syndrome...) I will definitely add that thought from Jay to my sales pitch! :-) Seriously, it is a bit ...

Other Disaster *PIC*

Fri, 12/08/2017 - 08:17
A little bit of superbond wont fix this for tomorrows race D A palm tree just destroyed our boat and trailer. One of the preseason favorites to win the season, and this one was a dugout log, not a strip one.
