Old Kayak gets a Revamp

You would hardly notice it but this kayak is now 18 years old. I’ve done already a few jobs on it like replacing the skeg and working on the seat. However, over the years I have managed to get a few cracks on the hull and deck.

With the weather this nice, I have started grinding out the cracks, filled them with new gelcoat and sanded it down. Since I got on really well with it I gave it a red trim and replaced all the decklines. I also polished up the deck and then put everything back together. After 8 years I also thought the kayak deserved a name. To stick with the nose theme I started with my kayak Loki I decided to call it “Heimdallr”.

I have to say that the red trim and deckline on the yellow kayak looks now pretty awesome.
