OK, two vastly different boats, same damn problem …
Both my newly aquired 10+ yr old, supposedly rinsed every time Mega XtaC composite surf kayak AND my very lightly used 2006 Novus Composites Kayaks NC15 Escape have metal foot peg rails where I can get the peg catch to disengage, but then:
- the narrow rails in the Mega might be oxidized and don’t budge
- the NC15’s wider metal rails with bigger notches/spaces seem to be choked with sand
(which they sort of warn about and say rinse them out every use, but what am I supposed to do if I’m in Baja or San Juans for a week?!? and a buddy wants to try my boat?)
Any suggestions for either?
I’m thinking WD40 for the Mega and higher-pressure water for the NC …
