Re: Waveski - Which Leash should I go for?

The coiled leash, I have found is a pain in the rear due to its coiled up concentrated weight. I’ve gone back to a standard 6’ surf leash, tuck the hall way point on the leash under your lap belt NOT through it. I modified my leg shackle by removing the fixed pin and replacing with a stainless steel...

Re: replacing deck bungee

The easiest way that I have found is to pull the outer sheath back 100mm or so, cut the inner core off. Pull the outer sheath forward again, wrap a small piece of tape around it to stiffen the end, this allows you to thread it through the deck fittings. Use the empty sheath as a needle, just keep pu...

Re: Carbon repair and spraying question?

Hi Yabba, if you just want to make it a cosmetic waterproof repair is recommend one of the UV cured surfboard ding repair kits. No mixing, fill the small area with sun cure or one of the others. Put clear cello tape over the area to flatten it out and match the existing contours. Put boat outside un...

Re: Carbon repair and spraying question?

Hi Yabba, Have a look under the sea kayaking section in the Almanac, there is loads of info on repairing Gelcoats, Mega should be able to give you the RAL colour of the Gelcoat which you can order online from various websites. Once repaired wet colour sand it with varying grades of paper From 1000 g...

Dragorossi Pintail Seat Removal.

Hi All, I have just bought a used Dragorossi Pintail, the previous owner had removed the locating fixing from the backrest, resulting in the seat pan starting to tear where they have entered and exit the boat forcing the backband support strap down.

Re: Are all kayak trolleys junk?

KCS Trolley gets my vote. I have a NDK Romany with 10" hatches which causes issues with getting the wheels inside the boat. Spoke to Ronnie at KCS and he provided me with an Expedition Trolley which is wider and lower but with 8" wheels rather than the normal 10". Ronnie did advise that the smaller ...
