More deck bungees?

7 months 1 week ago - 7 months 1 week ago #35739 by SpaceSputnik
Thinking about the type of paddling I want to do next season and hoping to get in some longer distance excursions. With that some more cargo capacity may be required, so I am wondering if there's a good non-intrusive way to add more rigging. Would glue-on patches used on inflatables work well enough on Stellar's gelcoat and/or the paint Think uses? I guess it comes down to a specific adhesive.

In terms of use, I am thinking a small dry bag or two, maybe a spare paddle and an extra hydration bladder.


Current: Epic 18x Sport, Stellar SES 1g.

I recommend Surftech EZ plugs. Unlike some of the other solutions available, these never wear out. I have put them on several skis and they are what come on Huki skis. I can't understand why other manufacturers are still drilling holes in skis. Just rough up the ski surface and the plug, glue down with marine epoxy. Buy from Huki.

I agree with Steve. I put a set of EZ plugs on my ski, I even got the white ones for a more blended look to the boat.
