The anchors for these Yakima foot braces were done right before the shells were bonded together.
|A few installation details. This took place about 1/2 hour before inside hull glassing. Use sharp knife to slice the fiberglass over the holes (after it is wet out) and imbed the screws into epoxy putty.|
|Remove rail before bonding kayak together and protect the attachment points from epoxy with some masking tape.|
you like to build everything from scratch, foot braces are a good project.
These are mostly from carbon fiber with Teflon slides. The left foot peg
is adjustable and the right one is for rudder.
If you are not into making these little parts, Yakima footbraces make a great substitute.
Some builders drill
through the kayak to attach the footbraces.
This is completely unnecessary in wood strip kayaks.
