Sorry for the open ended title but they were too random to include.
If I’m not in love with the color of my kayak (I love the kayak) is there an acceptable way to repaint a poly boat or is there a wrap or similar solution. I’m ok enough with it that I could get over it if not
The inside of my hatches do not get water in them from paddling which I confirmed and also double up on by goop ing them again just in case. They do however sweat really bad. I don’t know if it’s the cold underside and the hot upperside of the boat causing condensation but there is ALWAYS moisture droplets on the inside of all of my hatches after any length of use. They also have the same condensation while being stored if there are sharp changes in ambient temp like a headlight fogs up etc. Other than leaving the hatch cover off where bees and things can take up residence, is there a way to keep this from happening so my hatches don’t smell like a 6 month old wet towel you left in your basement?
If I wanted to mount a waterproof GPS (I’m assuming they make these) slightly forward of the cockpit where I could navigate actively on the fly by simply looking at it, is there a drawback to probably drilling a few holes in the hull as long as I make sure they are watertight?There are several areas I plan to paddle where there isn’t just one way to get somewhere like intercoastal swamp lands etc. I’d like know a dead end cove from a fork that circles back without having to go that way. Id also like to know exactly where I am on the river so I can track progress when I’m doing multiday camps etc. I want to eliminate the need for Google maps and a smartphone.
Sorry for the long form questions. Thanks.
