Re: CH 14 kit questions

3mm should work fine for hatches if they're glassed. re. coaming size. Most little kids can butt balance and don't brace. A 4' child in the Ch14 would be like a 6' person in a solo canoe. A bigger person who's paddling in waves or wanting to roll a kayak needs the thigh braces in the right place. There are a lot of shorter folks getting big kayaks and taking rolling lessons only to discover they really don't fit well.
