Re: Strip: Varnish - Gloss or Satin?

You're actually advising to not use perimeter lines? Really?

I choose not to use perimeter lines.

I was paddling sea kayaks with friends who did not have perimeter lines before this British
style and BCU programs overtook the kayaking scene. Paddle leashes didn't stick, deck lines did.

We managed just fine doing self rescues without waxed boats.

I offer deck lines for customers who choose to use them.

Options are good.
