...... be easier to epoxy onto the kayak . Both nickle plate and expoxy coat are rust proof :-) . If you are going to epoxy , and it's a plastic boat , don't forget to scuff the area w/#80 sand paper and flame/torch that same area first ... for best adhesion . And they say West System G-Flex works real good on plastic , although I've not used it yet .
