Newfound Woodworks Fiberglassing DVD

Newfound Woodworks Fiberglassing DVDIn this video you will look over our shoulders as we describe our hull preparation techniques, apply the sealer coat, cloth coat and then filler coats of epoxy. We discuss the purpose of the application materials we supply and review safety procedures. Three days of intense filming were edited to 78 minutes of extremely valuable information. We show you the fiberglass wet-out of the outer hull of a kayak and the inner hull of a canoe. We cut some cloth on a bias and show how it will wrap right around some very severe bends. We discuss the advantages of blush-free MAS Epoxy and how to use the long cure times to your advantage. If you have never wet-out fiberglass, this video will help you get the best possible results by showing you the techniques that work.

Welcome to Traditional Flatwater Canoeing with Caleb Davis

Welcome to Traditional Flatwater CanoeingIn this video, Caleb Davis shows you how you can become proficient in solo and tandem paddling using your own tandem canoe. Traditional paddling is the most commonly used tandem technique. It is identified by its long graceful stroke. Traditional paddling is done primarily with the arms, back and thighs providing propulsion. The traditional solo technique is identified by a Paddler who is kneeling near the center of the canoe and the canoe is heeled over so that the Paddler side gunwale is almost at the water. Paddling strokes are only on one side of the canoe. NOW ON DVD!
