Kayaking Outfitting :
Here is a sequence of pictures on how to outfit your
boat to make it perform better.
This outfitting will make you a better boater and make
rolling your boat much easier.
So let's get going and look at these pictures....
Here is a series of shots performed on a new Burn
These mods will work on any boat.
Here is the glue you will need ......................and a respirator
...you must use it!
I'm not a fan of the spray type glues. The cans have too much thinner in
Apply a heavy coat to the mini-cell and a light coat to the boat.
Wait 2 hours (Over night is even better)
Then apply a thin a coat to the mini-cell and the boat.
Wait 20 mins and stick.
You only get one shot this is why you mark where the mini-cell is going
to be placed.
It will never come off.
Knee Blocks and Thigh Hooks cut and prepped .....
Blocks labeled and prepped ...............
Notice the black sticker...special thanks to Shred
Ready for making these stickers.
Always mark the blocks before installing; so you remember where they
go in the boat.
Bulkhead removed to install blocks and larger back plate.
The seat was moved 1" inch forward for a more aggressive stance.
This can be a bear with other manufactures boats, but its a must
needed mod for better tracking .
If you are more of a floater than an aggressive paddler. Leaving the
seat in its factory position might be the ticket for you.
Here is the tools you will need
On the left is the small bulkhead, you need the large one.
Below is a video showing extra foam being installed for the bulkhead . This
is a mod I do for every boat. It helps for impacts. The video shows you how to
perform this mod.
Adam in the video uses a slightly different foot block set-up. I like
wedges. You might like Adam's set-up.
There is always another way to outfit a boat to your taste.

Thanks to Adam for making this video.
How to make your skirt dryer
The picture below:
Notice the knee blocks installed ...look how the minicell thigh hooks
behind the factory thigh hooks.
Notice how there isn't thin mini-cell covering over
the factory thigh hooks or the knee blocks that are installed. I think it
makes them too slick. I rough up the mini-cell blocks for more bite.
But you might like your boat set up with the extra thin
Also notice the foam behind the factory thigh hooks. This
helps bring the factory hooks out more to help them wrap around your legs
How to make any boat dryer.
This is a must do mod for Dagger Nomads.
Want to see a Pyranha Karnali converted to a
Portage pad installed, now its easier to carry your boat.
Notice the aggressive hip pads, they are tight but DO NOT cut off blood
circulation to your legs.
IF your legs are going to sleep your hip pads are too tight.
Notice how the hip pad foam isn't impinged on the ratchet strap webbing
Double faced velcro installed to the front pillar ladder wall.
This helps to secure the throw bag. A throw bag that is clipped in behind
you is useless.
Notice the neoprene flooring
before the bulkhead. Pure comfort!
I'm convinced this helps keep my feet warmer in the winter.
Tired of losing your drainplug? Here is a picture where
the plug has been drilled to accept the shockcord.
The worse thing you can do to a boat is drill right through it when
installing a drain plug. I have a homemade jig to prevent this and don't use
the factory screws.
Here is modded C-Boat
Broken Blunt: Before welding
Broken Blunt Welded and ready for the water again.
Here is a sun rotted sit-on-top ;A tree fell on
After the repair and welded and ready to go again
Tired of losing your drain plug? You can always weld it
up : )
