Re: Strip: Installing forward bulkhead without a h

: Lance, Thank you for the suggestion. If the bag will prevent the
: kayak from sinking when it tips over, this may be the solution.
: Is there a solvent I can use to remove the adhesive mess ? Also
: what kind of bag did you use? Thanks again Lance...

Yost has a good how-to if you're feeling crafty and want to make your own.

Most kayak shops sell them. and NRS has a nice on line web site w/ a whole section on Kayak floatation.

You can never have too much floatation, esp. if your heading to moving water.

I'm not up on my solvents. but be careful. don't gas yourself in there!!
