Plan to fiberglass and epoxy the deck this week. As this is my first kayak, the question is how close to I cut the fiberglass cloth to the the rail or where the deck joins the hull?
And, oh by the way, I put in the non-thru hull fittings for the foot braces. A light went off in my brain that said keep an eye on them and make sure they don't move until the epoxy has set ... or they will slide to some place other than their assigned spot. Worked out fine with some extra watching + creative bracing.
