    Glue for Fabric to Foam?

    Just like the title says looking for a glue to attach fabric to foam. The fabric Velcro piece pulled away from a foam hook holder. Figured you fly guys would know the best glue to use. Thanks!

    I&M Canal springs major leak.

    Forget the army corp. We need a little dutch boy. I seem to recall something about holding back an ocean...

    That's some great advice on the safety and liability aspect!

    Advice on getting kids into fishing

    Does the child want to fish/have an interest in fishing or is this something his grandmother wants/thinks would be a good thing? If A then I think it will just be a matter of being a mentor/teacher and having a lot of patience. If B, well I guess you need to find out where the child stands. As a father I tried to pass along my love for fishing and the outdoors to my children . Patience and letting the child set the pace while at the same time pushing when needed is the best advice I can give. Not saying I did those things well but hindsight is 20/20 right!

    Suggestions for Kayak Research

    Thanks! Looks like the roof stuff is to attach to factory racks which I do not have. So... I either get a Yakima type system and use straps to tie the kayak to that or buy one of the specialty kayak holders to attach to the crossbars OR... if I had factory racks/cross bars I could strap the kayak to those or buy the specialty kayak holders that attach to the cross bars. Am I on the right track?

    Suggestions for Kayak Research

    Anybody have any advice / opinions on paddles? I think I know the size I need.. I think I like the mesh back type life vests so will just need to look at options. How about roof racks? Right now I have nothing on my roof but do have 4 built in slots for hardware. I looked a little at Yakima. Didn't realize that stuff was so pricey... there's got to be some less expensive options... maybe? I could definitely get away with loading it in my vehicle for awhile at least for local trips/good weather days and wait for the next REI 20% off coupon. And if I read correctly we no longer need to get a water usage sticker/register the boat after June 1 correct?

    Some more great information guys!! Thanks!! This will help me and others. It sounds like I want the best of all worlds; lightweight for easy portability and spot hopping, good seat to be able to sit for hours if needed, and either storage or carrying capacity for camping. Mark, I belong to REI so will keep that and STP in mind. Phil, those Native's are sweet looking!! Kind of pricey but maybe you get what you pay for... Jude, I don't have a lot to compare to but your boat was nice to paddle etc. but yeah that seat needs an upgrade...
