Gentlemen, please be kind with your posts. Compared to most of you I'm fairly new to paddling (2nd year OC-6, 1st year OC-1) and I need to make a new seat for my hurricane. I have 2 pieces of foam, so I have a little room for error. My question is where to start?
Do It start with an outline of my okole(luckily smaller than the piece of foam)? Next I wonder about how high the side's should go, how much room to leave in the back, depth of leg area and how much space to leave to attach to the canoe?
Last part is what tools do you recommend and where do I buy them? After I purchase them, how do I use them? I live in So Cal and have access to numerous shops. I'm a girl who likes to build/work with tools, however New Yankee workshop hasn't tackled this project.
I take paddling very seriously and realize I need to be able to do things on my own. So any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated by my Okole. Stock hurricane seats are just plain mean.
Mahalo for your Kokua
