I need a little help.

Posted by Cain on Aug 4, 2004

I'm an 18 year-old, soon to be college student, that just recently took on the task of building a Ch17 the summer before I leave. This is the first time I have ever built a kayak, even though I've been paddling for quite a few years. So far I havn't run into any major problems, but now I'm attempting to put on the deck, and I was wondering if it's ok that the deck flattens out right close to the bow. If it is right, how close should it begin to flatten? I've been following the forum posts and can tell that a bunch of you guys really know what you're doing. Maybe you can help out this beginner. Thanks.
