Last week whilst I was away I ordered an Endless River Canoe Sail Kit which was here when I got home so I spent some time fitting it today.
It was very easy and quick (apart from the waiting for glue to go off)
10 mins - Open Packaging - It was well wrapped. Included is the sail, pole, ropes, thwart, mast foot and glue. Strangely no instructions but it isn't that hard.
5 mins - measure up the thwart and mark it up
1 hr - drive to parents (2 miles away), get Dad to cut thwart, drink coffee, return home. I didn't want to cut it by hand but I guess you could if you wanted to.
5 mins - drill holes in gunwales and thwart, fit bolts
2 mins - rough up surface and put glue on mast foot/canoe
4 hrs - wait for glue to go off
2 mins - add more glue to mast foot and place where wanted
2 mins - set the mast to check foot is in the right place
2 mins - set the whole rig up and tie ropes to sails.
24hrs - let the glue go off completely
So, actual real time spent was about 35 mins to fit.
Now I am planning a trip to get to use it :-)
