Re: You can install after

a big rounded 6mm coaming is nice,,luxurious in fact for not wearing through skirts like thinner fiberglass coamings,with lots of wood to make a roundover on the inside and outside edge,,but during t-rescues when one kayak is dragged across your lap/skirt/coaming an unglassed Okoume coaming will get dinged up more than unglassed Okoume deck during paddle float rescues where ones weight is pressing onto a ferrule/paddle shaft. Just imagine dragging the bow of a s&g kayak across your nylon skirt with all it's edges pressing down into the unglassed coaming while turning the kayak over to drain the water out. Hmmm,,maybe a glassed coaming isn't a bad idea.
