Re: DIY Kayak

Great news congrats. I know when I first looked at this I decided that fiberglassing wasn't one of my skills, so I wasn't keen to take on such a project. Since then my daughter has taken up canoe polo, and I've got quite good at working with epoxy and doing repairs with fiberglass :?: . I'd actually...

Re: High Intensity Submersible Flounder light for Yak

;) Not your fault at all HLD! I bought things in the wrong order, should have got the bulbs first - then the tubes :roll: definately my fault. I have another job for the 13mm ones, nothing goes to waste :)

Re: High Intensity Submersible Flounder light for Yak

Have started getting all the bits together. My first mistake was ordering 13mm test tubes, I should have got the 15mm ones, the bulbs I bought from Jaycar are just that fraction too big for them. :oops: The new ones are on the way from the above link now. I got the glands from Jaycar too, they will ...

Re: Freighting kayaks

Purchased the yak off Canoe and Kayak Taranaki, they arranged the transport for me. I can't remember their name, but it wasn't one of the big firms. Maybe give them a call and see who they use.

Re: Freighting kayaks

From memory my Swing cost $60 from New Plymouth to Wellinton. It was wrapped in corrugated cardboard and bubble wrap and had no problems at all.

Re: Interesting Outboard Solution

As for fuel, those small outboards often have an inbuilt tank so no fuel lines or extrenal tanks are required. I imagine you would fair scream along with a 4 hp on the back :shock: .
