Re: Home Built Kayaks

Cotton fabric from Jo-Ann's. Its between the wood and fiberglass cloth. It soaks up the epoxy and becomes one with the lamination, and the epoxy and fiberglass wets out and dries clear, so you can see the design.

Thanks for the complements

Home Built Kayaks

2 home built kayaks. Chesapeake 16's built from plans. Cotton fabric under 6oz cloth, 4oz cloth decks, varnish. Track really well, fast, and stay dry. See you on the water! http://i1060.photobucket.com/albums/t453/PontiYakJax/Kayaks/IMAG0499_zpsf3132043.jpg http://i1060.photobucket.com/albums/t453/P...

Re: Any Grass carp fishermen here?

I'm pretty sure the ones in retention ponds have to be sterile and are placed by the lake maintenance companies to control weeds. Grass Carp 101 They only have a ~90% success ratio in breeding sterile fish, I've got ponds where they do reproduce. They are a "non-native" species. They eat submersed ...

Re: Pumpkin Hill

hey guys please be careful netting out there as i think it is considered a shrimp or shellfish federal sanctuary. Crab = Shellfish? I've been out there fishing from the shore, down a trail or two off the main road, and had commercial crabbers come up through the creeks, trap puller and all. The cre...

Re: PFD...in the market for a new one

I wear a Mustang Survival Auto Inflate at work. They work of "Hydro-static Pressure" --- it has to be submerged for it to go off. I've gotten rained on, drenched by sprinklers, and it hasn't gone off. with that said, they pop easy. Say you were knocked out, fell over board, it inflated and snagged o...

Re: JetriderXT

The engine's no more than a hopped up Honda pressure washer, but where do they source the jet drive? If I could find those, who knows what I'd build :evil:

Re: Building a glass on wood kayak

MulletMan: Very cool website, added to my bookmarks. I was thinking about laminating my own carbon bungie eyelets/ lashes, and there are a couple of pictures showing how it was done. I was going to do it because you can just epoxy them on, instead of screwing them in. 9oz tape on keel http://i1060.p...

Re: Building a glass on wood kayak

Not married :D The one in the pictures is for my girlfriend. It is cotton fabric from JoAnn's, any cotton fabric will work under the epoxy. It just soaks it up and becomes one with the lamination. Fumes, not that bad. Really hardly noticeable, the epoxy resin is solvent free. The stinky part will be...

Re: Carbon fiber Guru ?

I'm not sure which chopper gun hull you have, but some Dynel on the inside of a hull could work. Dynel isn't really strong, but it is abrasion resistant, I've seen it used on decks of sailing yachts to resist foot traffic/constant movement of people.

Building a glass on wood kayak

I see this truck driving south on us-1 in the mornings with a big jax kayak fishing logo on it, so I figured I would see what it is about. (I'm in the slow white toyota dragging a spray boat). Any ways, I am currently building a glass on wood kayak 16', out of Loyd's Registered BS1088 African Mahoga...
