The Deck Seams

The kayak on its side ready to tape the inside seams. No need to take any photos of the actual work, because I could barely see what I was doing, and the pictures wouldn't show much. Definitely the most persnickety & messy job yet! I was able to do the cockpit area by the same methods as the bottoms of the fore & aft compartments, but for the rest,  I went by the instructions, pre-saturating the fiberglass tape, and using the brush-on-a-stick, but the hard part was organizing light/arm/head. It reminded me of working on a car. I had to keep doing things "by feel", looking in to see what I' done, repeat, etc. I believe I got it done o.k, but glad its over.
