Hi, after using my perception as a landing craft to explore rocky river banks, it has a number of deep gouges. i am surprised they are not leaking.
i read a bit about their repair here & the consensus is to ignore them till they give probs (
which made me wonder, not everyone uses their kayak this way, PE kayaks could probably made at half the thickness (& weight) and still serve well launched from sand or from a dock. why dont manufacturers advertise the thickness of their hulls? or classify them in the brochure that they can survive a degree of rock hopping?
