  • NRS Pennel Orca Fixed Batten System

    Q:

    I want to add a center thwart position to my Riken Pioneer Raft to be able to move the thwart to that position and oar behind it. Just wondering if this would fit the thwart. The Riken system is two loops on the raft, 2 loops on the thwart, each side, with a plastic tab that slides through the middle. This sure looks to be very similar. I'm willing to try it. What's your return policy if I can't make it fit? Is Yellow in stock?

      A:

      I'm not familiar with that setup on the Riken. You can certainly return the BAT pieces if they're not going to work. And yellow is in stock.

    Q:

    I have a hyside 10' raft and I cut the threads connecting the thwarts to remove them. I want to install the Pennel orca fixed batten system but there are still threads present on the thwarts and raft where I will put the new battens. Do I need to remove all these threads to get good contact or can I just glue over them? Some threads are longer than others.

      You need to sand the thwart and the tube of the boat to get proper adhesion... just sand off the threads at this time and you will be good to go.. I use a sanding disc in a drill motor...

      A:

      I would recommend removing all the threads, as labor-intensive as this may be, to get a good adhesion between the batten and tube.
      Mine worked well.

      A:

      Bruno, I'd trim them as close to the tube as practical before starting the installation.

      A:

      Use a razor to cut the excess threads as short as you can and glue over them.. There is no reason why they would fail- that glue is powerful. Just get as much contact space for the glue to adhere as possible.
      Good luck!

            Comments about NRS Pennel Orca Fixed Batten System:

            Glued the batten system over old sewn thwart connections for 10' hyside bucket boat. Seems to be on there pretty good. Ran some webbing between battens on each side of boat for more gear lashing without a rowing frame which is a nice option. Haven't used the new batten system on the water yet.

              Comments about NRS Pennel Orca Fixed Batten System:

              I have an older Achilles self bailing with lace-in thwarts which worked well but were very cumbersome and time-consuming to install. Taking the time to install these will greatly enhance your boating experience without compromising the integrity or strength of the boat or thwarts.

                    Able to take fixed thwarts out for oar frame, then replace thwarts for paddle raft. Added plus is using the plastic batten in its sleeve without thwarts for tie down of frame inside the raft. ( acts like a D-ring without being in the way as a paddle raft.) Easy to use.

                        I used theses to replace the thwarts I cut out to use my row frame. Installing them was a breeze.
