      Did not come with instructions about the placement of the variously shaped pads. As a beginner I had to guess which went where and guessed wrong.

          The wedges for my hips were useless. The other stuff for knees and feet were fine but the hip wedges are way to thin to do anything at all.

              Worked great to get my wife a quick, stable fit into her boat as she was learning to kayak. We only used a couple of pads so we have some left over, but at least the variety of pads in this pack gave us options.

                Q:

                Can I use this to make a completely empty kayak functional? or is this mostly made to be added over a plastic seat and plastic footrest for example?
                Asked on 4/11/2016 by Tom from Gaspé, QC

                  A:

                  Hello Paddler,
                  Short answer: SURE. You might have to cut pieces or buy extras. Sit in the boat and feel around: you'll need seat pad, thigh/knee pads.
                  Use "marine GOOP". Apply liberally like using caulk. Easy to use, just clean the surface.
                  I have kayaked in boats that had NOTHING inside, not even a seat. Still had FUN.
                  LONG ANSWER:
                  "Functional" is subjective, so I'll do my best.
                  So, for this email I am assuming that you are not ocean or white-water kayaking, but will most likely be on placid lakes, rivers, tidal waters with any waves under one-foot. You are not going to be going for three-plus hours, not rolling, not fishing, and not going in cold weather. FUN is the operative word here.
                  OK.
                  I assume it is a plastic, sit-in (not sit-on-top) kayak with a seat and nothing else. In other words it is not "out-fitted".
                  In the past I have owned a little kayak like this and I would recommend the following:
                  seat pad (of course). definitely some thigh/knee padding. decent back-brace that is adjustable. Foot-pegs. trust me on this one! you can get cheap $ after-market foot-pegs and your boat might/should already have indentations in the plastic for them. If not, just drill the holes.
                  I would also think about going to Home-depot to buy some cheap foams. I have used RUBBER (not foam) water-pipe insulation on the sides of my cockpit where my legs touched the plastic sides.
                  Safety Basics:
                  Do wear a PFD (Personal flotation device) a.k.a. "life" jacket.
                  Don't put things on the deck (top of kayak).
                  Don't wear cotton clothing, once it is wet, it is deathly COLD. "cotton kills".
                  Don't use ropes on the water.
                  FURTHER IDEAS:
                  Get a spray-deck/"skirt". They're worth the $$. They keep the sun and drips of water off you. Get a medium or large "dry-BAG" (NOT dry-SACK they leak) to put your things in and store (MOSTLY EMPTY) behind your seat. It will provide some buoyancy if boat flips. Plus if bag falls in water it won't sink. A good dry-bag will always have heat-sealed seams.
                  Put extra set of cloths in bag too... at least basics.
                  Get a water-proof plastic box for wallet, keys, camera that you can clip-into the boat somewhere.
                  See you on the water!

                  A:

                  The latter-it's a padding layer kit. You'd need a moulded or shaped seat, knee braces, foot braces and/or side stays, depending on the paddling you're doing.

                  A:

                  As I've used this package, it's mostly to augment existing seat, pegs, etc. I've used it to add bolsters to knee braces, to add padding to existing seats, etc. I don't believe you can properly outfit an empty shell with this product.

                How thick are each of these pieces? Seat and heel padding especially. Thanks.

                  A:

                  They're adequate. I'm not used to a thick butt pad, but you may want to
                  beef yours up somehow. Other than that they worked great.

                  A:

                  The seat is about 1/4" thick, and the large square piece is the same. The
                  smaller squares are 3/8" thick. Possibly they're really metric: 6mm and
                  10mm, respectively.

                  A:

                  The seat pad is 1/4", others are 3/8". The thigh pad is the thickest, 2", sloping down to 5/8".

                  A:

                  They should work just fine, Robert. I suggest you slightly roughen the surface, just take off the glaze, before applying. You should be able to use just about any good contact adhesive.
