Suitable glue for hull

Post by Steve » Mon Mar 31, 2014 2:11 pm

As we enter spring thoughts turn to kayaking again :)

I want to stick a couple of velcro straps to the inside hull to keep the backbone centred.

Any ideas what glue is most suitable? what chemical base - or maybe better to ask which to avoid?

Thanks
Steve

AquaSeal from Mcnett or Vynabond. You can also use the glue in the repair kit.

I have done the following before, works great.

Stitch a length of pvc, same size as the velcro "base" to the velcro.
You now have a pvc backed velcro and can use any vinyl glue to stick anywhere on the pvc surface of the kayak.

Cheers
