Paddling Tip of the Week
Store your boat out of direct sunlight. Ultraviolet rays can degrade just about any kayak hull material, from fiberglass to plastic to coated fabric. Also consider moisture. Consistent exposure to moisture from rain and humidity can cause hull materials to break down over time. The weekly paddling tip is provided by the Ocean Tribe Paddlers, which is affiliated with the Sanibel Sea School. For more information, visit oceantribepaddlers.org.
