Re: Deck is already on?

The danger of swelling is much worse with a large end pour or dam. I had a dam boil over on my first kayak, it created quite a mess. The kayak also had a precut deck, and had some fit issues, because the pour changed the shape of the bow. With the wood block, you slather the entire thing with epoxy, and also brush epoxy into the end toggle whole after you drill it.
