Skin around deck coaming

Submitted by TomL35666 on Tue, 04/02/2019 - 14:00

Has anyone tried to make a gasket around the coaming similar to the one used on the Trak 1600? I am skinning the deck on a somewhat modified Tom Yost kayak and would like to use a similar gasket around coaming. I am most interested in the type material used for the gasket.

Thanks, Tom

Got Nitrile 1/16". x 36" x 72" Commercial Grade 60A Buna sheet from HomeDepot at a reasonable price so am giving that a try.  I have cut the gasket and it looks good so far. Will post how it turns out.
