Hull strenght

Posted by Christian on Sep 18, 2004

I build a S/G west river 18. My friend just tried it the other day and she asked me if the deck and hull of my kayak could withstand different types of rescue and reentry. I could not answer her since I never tried any of those. Can anyone answer me please!!!!

Also, would there be any effects on the deck off my kayak if I were to capsize. I mean if the water would damage the deck (warp, water seapage, etc.)

Thanks Christ
