Skinning kayak with loose weave polyester

Skinning a Kayak

There is some good information on the web on skinning with Nylon but virtually nothing on the polyesters fabric like I sell. It is a loose weave and requires a different method to get good results.

I am not an actor or even a very good teacher but I will try to walk you through the process with the methods I use in the following videos.

NOTE:  While this method is still valid, I now recommend the Double Corded Stitch instead.  I use in my classes and it is much quicker and you can sew the fabric on tightly to start with and with minimal ‘pull holes’ in the fabric.
