mounting footbarces

Posted by Mischa on Sep 21, 2004

I�ve just read over the directions that came with my foot braces and they difer slightly form the instructions in the New Kayak shop. I�m wondering which methods are preferable:

1. the book says to use a 3mm to 4mm thick pieces of ply wood, but the instructions say to use fiberglass tape for a backing 2. the books says to epoxy they foot braces as well as screw them (with confusing directions on epoxying first, then wet sanding?), the instructions omitted this step.

Thanks, Mischa
