      A:

      Sorry for the delay, I'm out of the country. I would think it could
      be used easily on a fiberglass boat, tho mine is plastic. You might want
      to buy heavier guage elastic cord depending on the intended use - my sea
      kayak has a mix of elastic and non-elastic cords. I added some new
      attachment points, and change the rudder lines a little. I also replaced
      all my elastic cords as the salt and sun had damaged them over 4 years
      and they lost their snap. Perhaps you might want to back the nylon
      fittings with thin stainless washers underneath to spread the load on
      your deck and prevent cracking or any enlargement of the screw holes.
      Many fiberglass boats have similar deck rigging - check a local kayak
      supplier to see how they do it. Good luck and happy paddling!!

      Easy to integrate to any surface, but will likely require ports to be
      drilled. I used only a small portion to outfit a supplemental rigging on my
      SUP for overnight drybags.

      A:

      It should be fine. You'll just want to take care when drilling the holes that you don't cause cracks in the fiberglass.

      My experience was on a PVC kayak, and all went quite well, though I realize that is much different than a fiberglass body.

      I installed this on a poly kayak without issue. I don't see why it would
      not work for a fiberglass kayak too.

      I used this Kit on a "plastic" (LDPE) Kayak drilling through the deck and using the fasteners included. It worked fine!
      Using silicone sealant on the fittings may improve the water tightness.

    Q:

    Hi I am into spearfishing and my kayak (sit on top of) does not have an attachment to secure my spearguns while paddling. Alternatively when I am getting in and out of the water I don't have an attachment to secure my paddle along side the yak. Your deck rigging looks like what I am after except I would need some J hooks as well for ease of release. Can you help with this?

      A:

      The deck rigging works great. Silicone the rivets so they are water tight. A couple j hooks threaded onto the bungee will give more flexibility on the tie down options. Even using j hooks as the anchor points well because the bungee can just be crisscrossed on the deck.

      Marsh,
      This kit worked well for deck rigging you can use it front and rear
      of the kayak. You can slide the paddle under the bungee cord to
      retain one end and keep a paddle tether strapped to the middle.

      Marsh, sounds like the Deck Rigging Kit should work for what you need. We don't stock J-hooks, but you should find what you need at your local hardware store..

      A:

      Deck rigging will work- just decide where all you want attachment points. The rigging material has lots of stretch- so plan accordingly. I added a cord lock onto the setup to allow extra tightening.
      I also used j hooks to have more options. Good luck!

      A:

      You will find that this and many other products here can help customize your yak to fit many needs and desires. Don't be afraid to drill a hole and put things where you want. Use stainless steel or plastic parts. Good rivets and staniless screws work well. I have added pole holders, paddle tiedowns and numerous other things to our kayaks. NRS is a very good source but look around there are others, including a good marine hardware storew, and surf board shops. Good luck and enjoy.

    Comments about NRS Kayak Deck Rigging Kit:

    I ordered 2 of the rigging kits. The kit had plenty of eyelets and a decent amount of shock cord. I would have liked to have 5 more feet of shock cord and at least one J-hook. The installation plans supplied should include more info about rigging patterns and eyelet orientation. This is a common issue with NRS. NRS takes the time to make a product and an info packet of written and video help, but doesn't take the time to fully explain about the use of the product.

    Comments about NRS Kayak Deck Rigging Kit:

    I installed this deck rigging kit to a Mad River Passage 16 Canoe (3 Seater)to make it more versatile and functional. It basically turned my Canoe into a hybrid between a Canoe and a Sit-in Kayak. Works great, looks great and functions to meet my recreational needs for camping, fishing and boating. My son and father enjoy our Canoe more with this added feature, we are able to secure our personal and outdoor gear to the deck rigging kit with ease to provide peace of mind and comfort. Absolutely recommend this deck rigging kit for all kayak and canoe enthusiasts!

      Comments about NRS Kayak Deck Rigging Kit:

      Great addition to kayaks that don't come with this feature. It was quite easy to install, although those at the very bow and stern were a little tricky. Although my kayak has a large storage area in the stern, I still installed these on the stern and use removeable bungees to allow even more storage once the storage compartment is loaded. Great product!!!
