Boat Building Resins That Sink Into the Wood. FAQ - "Penetrating" Epoxy Preservatives that "Soak into" the wood. Generally the thinners based products were a precursor to the full high solids epoxy catastrophe (and I mean that in the most positive sense).

FAQ - "Penetrating" Epoxy Preservatives that "Soak into" the wood.

The most common in Oz is the dear old Epicraft Everdure which we all used to seal the insides and underdecks and often under the paint of our racing dinghies in the seventies and very early 80s. With racing dinghies weight is seen as somewhat critical - an extra pound or two is considered a catastrophe. Anyway, everdure was not particularly effective at keeping the water out of the timber - the boats would still put on weight - this could range from a pound or two up to about 5% of the hullweight. The reason as far as I have been able to gather is that the thinners are quite long complex molecules and as they come out of the epoxy matrix they leave holes behind. As the thinners content of Everdure is very high - about 70 percent from memory the holes are very extensive. The good quality epoxies are termed "high solids".

Since Renn's boat measurements use Imperial units not the metric system, I had a choice of either measuring the offsets in metric (a good idea) and later converting to the English system for cross-checking against his data ...OR... measuring everything in the English system directly, which is harder and still requires some conversion work but is much quicker and easier when taking and writing offsets directly from the boat.

When developing a table of offsets for a boat, there are a LOT of measurements coming off the boat. If a fellow were to write in standard fractional notation, e.g. 1/8" instead of 0-0-1, he'd use up a lot of extra room in his notes and more paper to boot. Produits - Industrias Monzón.

Alden Piantedosi RowWing Sliding Seat (Row Wing Base Unit show without stanchions legs) The RowWing is a drop-in rigger designed to convert any canoe or skiff into a sliding seat sculling boat.

Row Wing Sliding Seat

Designed with fleets in mind, it can be used for either type of boat and will go in and out of a canoe much more quickly than the Scout Rig. The RowWing will also break down into a more transportable and smaller size than the Scout Rig – should you be moving things around. The greatest distinction between the two is that you can mount the RowWing rigger free and clear of the gunwale. Prices. Welcome to Salt Pond Rowing, Your Source for Skiffs, Rowboats, Shells and Rowing Accessories. Row Wing Sliding Rigger. Row Wing Sliding Rigger The sliding rigger concept is not new.

Row Wing Sliding Rigger

The primary advantage of this system is that it eliminates the effect of your torso weight shifting back and forth as it does with a sliding seat. This is particularly noticeable in shorter boats which will tend to "hobby-horse". The geometry of the sculling stroke is the same whether you have a sliding seat or a sliding rigger. One difference is the need to have a way to capture your lower back/butt for this is the point that connects the locomotion to the boat. We first developed our sliding rigger in 1984.

One drawback of the sliding rigger was determining how to install it as a canoe conversion. Click here for mounting options.

Page 2: Fiberglassing Page 3: The Finished Kayak I am building a Cirrus LT kayak. It is 16 feet long, 21.5 inches wide, with a waterline width of 19.2 inches. It has an optimal load (kayaker and gear) of between 130 and 187 pounds. The Cirrus LT was designed by Vaclav Stejskal of One Ocean Kayaks. I chose this design because I wanted a hard chine kayak to play in. After carefully aligning the panels, tightening wires, and checking alignment again and again from every angle, the panels were fused together using silica-thickened epoxy.
