So, after figuring out that I could cast a plug from an existing kayak…it was on to learning how to glass. åÊMost people know my dad as the leader of Perception Kayaks from 1975-1998, as the man who drove the ship. åÊHowever, he started out just like me…covered in fiberglass, breathing resin fumes, and generally making a mess in the backyard in order to have fun on the weekends. åÊHe taught me how to drape the cloth, mix the resin, and saturate the cloth. åÊI’m stubborn and opinionated, so I would argue with him about how to do it. åÊYou see, I’d read Surfer Steve’s how to on surfboard making and I was an internet armed expert. åÊAnyway, we prevailed, I learned, and we glassed the first boat.
