Does anyone know of a good place to have my kevlar kayak repaired in the Charlotte NC area? Thanks!
WHERE AND WHAT?
What type of yak? Skin coat or gel coat? Many kevlar ailments and be repaired with glass. I just repaired my Wenonah K140 solo canoe with 8 oz glass on top of the kevlar. Please elaborate on the damage so I can be more specific, or recommend some one.
I am just north of Charlotte and have repaired several kevlar canoes. (Some better then others) All have still been able to race and turn in good times, so I am not too bad on little stuff.
Try Great Outdoor Provision Company. I know they used to do repairs.
yes, Great Outdoor Provision Co.
Go ask at the Charlotte GOPC shop if they can do repairs there. GOPC does have a great repair guy, Chris, at the Raleigh - Cameron Village shop. I have a kevlar Impex Mystic, which I cracked clear through after dropping it from the top of a car in 2008. Chris did a fine repair – patch inside and gelcoat outside – at an extremely reasonable charge. The boat is fine and I’m still paddling it.
