One more wrinkle
Posted by Mac on Jan 7, 2005
This is one big advantage of rub rails. You glass the hull. Trim even with the top of the deck. Flip her over. Install rub rails flush with the deck. Do a nice round over to the top edge of the rail. Apply deck cloth, letting it hang over the rails and epoxy it onto the rail. When green, simply trim of along the bottom of the rail. Voila!
I did this on my first kayak last winter and will do it again on #2 this winter.
