Been a while since I've visited this site. Since then, I've added a few things to my OB. Shortly after reading this post, (back in the day) I think I ordered some of the SOLAS tape from KFS (Then) and used up that order on my 2nd hull. 2nd hull was replaced (Drivewell crack again) and I needed more SOLAS tape and I believe I found some at West marine? Anyhow, my current hull (The 08') I have 1" x 1' strips all over the hull! I even put strips into the gunnel wells for overhead visibility. I've changed my handle on another kayak fishing site to CGN-38 (The hull numbers of the naval ship I was on for 3 yrs active duty) and I affixed those letters and numbers on my hull using high reflectivity stickers so they glow as bright as the SOLAS tape strips. Added a down rigger, cooler/rod holder, multipul leash anchors with leashes.
Future plans include LED light strips inside hull,1 to illuminat the hull, and help see in the hull to grab something if needed.
