Re: Belly up or down?
Posted by Laszlo on May 2, 2005
I just put the deck on last week (without nails) and used 17 of the 1 inch ratchet straps and 4 of the cam cleat straps. In between them I used a roll and a half of packing tape.
Preparation definitely helps. I did 3 dry runs and after the last one left the decks on for 4 days before gluing. The delay was not deliberate, it just worked out that way, but I'd do it again on another kayak because it left the decks partly curved and made the real effort easier.
