TANDEM TRIPPING KIT
KTT01

CROTCH ANCHORS (BOW & STERN)

            Centre the patch to the seat or kneeling thwart (pic 2L)
            Position the centre of the patch approximately 5” in front of the seat (pic2R)

Note:   Anchor placement can be forward or backwards from the above suggestions (pic 3L)
            Depending on the paddlers size and weight and comfort level. This will have an effect on
            the position of the thigh straps as they come across your legs.

            With a pencil or china marker, trace out the patch and mark it with an arrow pointing
            Towards the front of boat.

            Smaller patch is for the bow position, larger patch is for the stern or solo position

SIDE ANCHORS

            Centre the patch vertically between the two seat  posts approximately ¼” down from gunwale (pic 3R)
            Or seat brace. Trace the patch out with arrow pointing forward

BAG CAGE

            The tripping kit includes a bag cage kit that will allow you to install either 2 end cages or a centre
            Cage BUT NOT BOTH..  If you want to have the boat fully caged, then you will need to order an
            Additional bag cage.
            For instructions on bag cage installation, refer to Bag Cage Installation sheet.

PREPPING THE BOAT

            Within the marked area of your patches, clean with acetone without removing the lines (pic 1L).
            If you are working with an older boat or doing a refit, make sure that you remove the layer of dirt (pic 1R)
            Or glue (it may look clean, but it isn’t!!)  If there are any marked lines within your gluing area
            Of your patch, remove them
            Wipe down the gluing side of the patches with acetone

GLUING PROCESS

            Using vinyl cement (Vyna-Bond), apply a thin layer onto the patch and boat with a piece of foam or
            Brush. Make sure that the entire surface of both patch and boat is covered

            Let glue dry for 15 minutes (this allows for solvent in glue to evaporate)  **IMPORTANT**

            With a heat gun or hair dryer, re-heat glued surface of both patch and boat (this re-activates glue)
            Place patch(s) onto glued surface with arrows pointing forward
            Rub down patch with round object or screen door repair roller

            Let glue cure for 12 hrs before paddling
