  Glass mat
  Posted by: old_user on Dec-17-12 10:32 PM (EST)

has glue which dissolves in traditional resins. West says it's OK to use their epoxy, but admit that the bonding chemical is not dissolved. Patching to old mat should be fine though, because all the glue would have been dissolved already.

Other than dedicated surf kayaks (like Mega) I didn't know any WW boats were composite. I had assumed they were all poly. I would have thought sea kayaks distort more than WW boats. With their length, sea kayaks essentially have a longer lever arm. I've certainly felt mine distort dropping off surf waves or running over rocks. But I suppose they generally take much less impact damage than a WW kayak (I really don't know, never been WW kayaking).
