My Hobie Tandem Island Update

I finally got the hull crack welded up on my Hobie Tandem Island despite how hot and humid the temperature was outside today. For this being my first time doing plastic welding I have to say that it was a pretty simple process. I originally was planning to use welding staples to help keep the two sides of the crack together to help begin the welding process but decided to just go with a one wire twist method. Overall I’m very happy with the way the weld turned out. Now waiting on the parts that I ordered online that were missing on the kayak when I originally got it to begin arriving in the mail. In the mean time the plan for me will be to update my jetski trailer that I primarily use for my Hobie PA14 and make it dual purpose by extending the tongue so that it can also accommodate the length of Tandem Island.
