Re: skid plats and plastic deck/gunnels on a rival

the skid plates were just glued on. There is a lot of excess glue. Thanks for the ideas about the bags and laces! I had not thought of that. Every ounce helps!
thanks

skid plats and plastic deck/gunnels on a rival

I was given a rival - royalex light. I am trying to see how I can lighten it (I am 5' and 105lb). My last royalex was a mad river outrage with wood gunnels and i was able to load/unload it by myself. Right now the rival feels much heavier. It has skid plates that appear to have been glued on. Can I ...

Sited... lime green black fly on I-35 in austin

open boaters in texas

I'm starting to make plans to relocate to Austin TX late summer- early fall. Per AW there is quite a bit of II-IV water. What about open boaters? I will paddle with kayakers if I'm forced to but... I'm also curious about the water. In PA and around its mostly drop pool. Anyone familiar with say lowe...

Re: what did you sell or buy this year?

I started out 2014 with intention to buy just 1 boat and being an ex-kayaker swore I would never go back to a skirt. Then got the slalom bug. Ended up doubling my fleet and am officially out of room (until I move) Shacho can't remember but it was worth every penny C-1 Gyramax $75 Hahn (that was made...

Re: Install toggle switch for pump bulkhead outfitting

Awesome. I have an Octane 92 that has double pumps and I've never been happy with the placement (each end of the saddle). Your design would be more efficient. Thanks!

Re: Slalom boat outfitting.

I had one of those skirts once and if I remember correctly Snapdragon has a link on their site to show video of how to put it on. Its a little different than the usual skirt but it was the driest skirt I ever used.

Install toggle switch for pump bulkhead outfitting

My 2 octanes have pumps and I'm currently in the process of installing them a little more permanently than duct tape and camo strap holding the pump. What suggestions can I get (outside of the obvious no pumps) to seat the toggle switch into the boat. Right now I have them taped in with duct tape in...

backlund paddle

I recently picked up a Backlund. The prior owner had put a metal piece on the end and I would like to remove it.
Is there a specific way to take the rivets out that won't damage the paddle?
Is there something I can use to fill the rivet holes?

patching royalex

What is the best choice for material for the outside patch on royalex? I have been talking to Sweet Composite and they have several different materials and by the time I finished reading their info page I was more lost then when I started.
