    Holy catfish! Rip van Winkle here. When I took my first comprehensive kayak course in the early 1980s we were taught how to do our own fibreglassing. Not difficult and I’ve done it ever since, including Kevlar.  You do need to do it outside on a relatively warm day. I must admit that sometimes my boats did look a bit like a dog’s breakfast, but they never leaked and I could make repairs even on trips.  In fact, I always carry the makings of a repair just in case. If it is cold, you may have to make a fire to get the stuff to go off.  Your boat isn’t really broken in until it has a few scratches and at least one repair. Seems to make it go faster.

    I had Warren from ATD Composites work on my boat.

    Phone: (604) 355-0559
    Toll Free: 1 (855) 283-3703

    ATD stands for Attention To Detail which is how Warren works.  He did the work at Jericho so it took no effort on my part.

    According to Deep Cove Kayak’s website:

    “Our repair technician Peter works with fiberglass, composites, carbon, kevlar, and even some plastics. Using these materials he can repair kayaks, surfskis, stand up paddleboards, surfboards, and paddles. His maxim is: If it floats (or is supposed to) and it fits in the workshop, we can probably fix it. And if it has a leak, he’ll find it and plug it.”
