Re: How many Kevlar Sunbursts were made?

The hull serial number is TBH16548H887. Other than "the blue hole" (TBH) and the last 2 digits signifying it was made in 1987 I'm don't know about reading the serial numbers. Help is appreciated.

Re: How many Kevlar Sunbursts were made?

How many Kevlar Sunbursts were made?

Just last week I bought a brand new old-stock (1987 model) never been in the water, never been outfi...

Re: whats the diff in wood and vinyl gunnels

Wood is bouyant/vinyl is not. Vinyl requires no maintenance/wood requires minimal maintenance for optimum longevity. Vinyl gunnels can get water in them and can be problematic (especially in cold climates)/wood absorbs a bit of water but big deal. Rivets holding vinyl gunnels together can fail (happ...

Re: paddle shaft protective tube replacement

Removing the grip will allow you to place a dynel sleeve/west systems epoxy where needed. Removing grips isn't all that difficult. Heat and twist usually does the trick.
