Helped my friend Robin Dunham with building a “Trip-Top” for his Pelican kayak. The idea was to build something that would cut down on water from waves from entering the kayak so it would keep his gear dryer.
Took a little figuring out how to do it and it’s a good thing I know a little about sewing (inherited from my dad I guess). Anyhow I hope this info and video will help you come up with something that will allow you to paddle further into the off season.
UPDATE: Mar6,2012 Added Video “Robin Trying out Kayak Trip-Top”
I tested the Trip-Top out this morning and it works awesome on the water. Robin came by this afternoon and is looking forward to trying it out soon. We added the Stadium Seat as ShuswapKayaks (Matt) suggested. Great Idea Matt!.
