Re: Shearwater cockpit gl

Thanks for the advice! I think what I'm going to do is just tape the insides of the hull seams in addition to the layer of glass over the whole cockpit. First boat, nervous about strength and my sasquatch butt weighing down the hull and all that. Any other suggestions on the hatch cover latch mechanism to avoid the external toggles? I'd really like to have a clean deck if possible, although not for any really good reason other than sex appeal so that my kayak can be friends with all of the other popular kayaks. Thanks again to all of you experienced builders out there for your help!
