Re: Carbon Fiber

The carbon cloth was epoxied to some very thin plywood (maybe 1/16") I bought at a hobby store to form the backrest. Teh epoxy cured with teh wood/carbon shaped in the curved position that I wanted for the backrest. The plywood was then painted with epoxy to seal it.

Carbon alone would work too, using at least two layers.

Minicel foam was glued to the wood/carbon backrest using contact cement. Minicel foam is available at most good paddling gear shops.
