kayak repair kit

Postby BCflyfisher2012 » Mon Jun 21, 2010 12:40 pm

taking my new yak out to the surf for the first time next month and am thinking about putting together an emergency repair kit in case something goes wrong with the pieces I installed. is this necessary? and if so, what all should I put in it?


thanks!

If you did it right nothing should go wrong.

Caulk and a plastic repair kit would be ok I guess.
I never have brought a kit with me though.

And oh yeah Pink duct tape is required in any repair kit.

Yeah, I understand though. Mine has been through 2 years since any major additions have been made and I know I made them correctly since I don't get much of any water in and most of that comes from the "wallet" hatch. I really need to order a new cover for it since mine leaks.
edit: or I could just take the one that doesn't leak from Dad's boat and put it onto mine :twisted: Nah.

I have the welding kit if it gets realy bad. Made a repair on my old kayak that turned out nice.
