Production has slowed of late. Life has its distractions, but some details are taking shape. One item here is actually new seat backs for our 2 SOF kayaks. This can be considered a prelim to this build's back rest. A couple previous solutions didn't deliver comfort, so we've cedar stripped a couple backs, glassed both sides and laminated 1" Minicell foam on the seat side. Slotted holes are on either end and fiberglass loops are on the back for boat installation. Varnishing still remains to be done, but you can get the gist here.
|Both back rests. One still on jig.|
The jig was traced from the rear of each cockpit with a 1" offset. The rest of the construction was just like those forms defining the hull.
|Minicell back. Indents of clamps will disappear.|
Minicell foam may be too thick. We'll see. Contact cement grabs quickly, so be precise.
