Almost off topic:
I am a DIY kind of guy, but at a very low skill level - an evil combination. So when @Rookie says
“Have the cardboard template done for the minicell footbrace I want to install”,
I would like to know how he does that first step. Then maybe I can ask about the ensuing steps.
Any good videos etc. and other feedback?
I do like the minicell (etc.) footbrace idea.
A length of coated wire that holds the shape it’s bent into. Wrapped it around the outside of my kayak near the foot brace area (using tape to hold it down in spots), made sure it comported to the V shape of the hull and the hard chines, then taped the two ends together and slipped it off the boat. Traced the outline of the wire template on a cardboard box about to be recycled and cut away. Just had to do some minor trimming for fit. Found the idea here in some older posts.
BTW, am a she - went to Home Depot and told one of the guys what I wanted to do. He didn’t blink an eye, led me to the wire department and selected the product he thought would be best. And it was.
