Bayou... all the Lakes you mentioned I’ll wouldn’t mind taking cruise!!! Yes it would nice to see the boats all together..

Got a question for the group.......

How important is it to screw down the cover boards?

I have everything epoxied down and the first layer of cover board is screwed to the shear...

Also, I have gotten all of my finish sanding done before staining.... soooo I didn’t know if I needed to go back and screw and install the bungs?????

Thanks all!!!!

Will, I screwed the coverboards down. My nightmare was one day when run hard into something the whole sheer would spring open without them.
...yet I have kayaks without a single fastener :lol:
