How to Build a Kevlar Canoe

Floatation Installation

We did a "first float" test to determine the best placement for seats.  No ribs were installed at this point, so it was extremely "floppy".

 

 

˝” polystyrene cut to fit bow and stern (as shown) and “tacked” in place with hot glue.

 

S-glass is then cut to the same shape (+1-2 inches) and wetted out over the polystyrene.  Make sure you work out the bubbles.
