I am thinking of making a home made foot rest and incorporating it with an existing aluminum tube foot rest, (no rudder to worry about).
My thoughts were to use a piece of fiberglass with epoxy and wrap it around some light weight material ( ? -type).
Then using a couple of pipe type strap clamps attached to the back of it also using a couple of small fiber glass pieces epoxied to secure it.
The angle of the foot rest could be adjusted just by loosining the clamps and setting it as desired.
The two questions I have are:
- What would you use as a light weight backing material ? (I was thinking of perhaps finding a thin sheet of styrafoam at a craft store?)
- Would this set up have the strength for a foot rest?
Thanks in advance,
