After practicing entering and exiting the kayak on dry land; I decided to cut out two ribs that seemed to impede exiting. Suddenly due to the lack of ribs the fabric sagged. No problem...heat gun!!!
It tightened up the fabric perfect; however I unfortunately made a small hole in the side. 3M marine sealant then covered with gun tape and painted. Not the prettiest however I'm certain it will not be her last patch!
Ready to go I fitted her skirt and added some decklines.
Here she comes!
This was suppose to be a picture on the snow bank. Wind pushed her over and she proceeded to roll 4 times before landing upright like a cat. Tough as nails.
Tonight she rests on the vehicle. Float bags installed; ready for launch tomorrow morning!
