Kayak Maintenance and Repair with Michael Bowersox

Boat maintenance and repair with Michael Bowersox:OOPS General Meeting, Nov. 20th, 2013

Michael Bowersox Kayak maintenance and repairWe depend on our boats to keep us safe and secure on the water.  Moreover, they represent significant investment(s).  What can you do to keep your boat in tip-top shape?  What kayak maintenance and repairs can you effect yourself and when should you think about taking it to the shop?  What is a good safety kit to keep with you in your boat and how do you use all that stuff? 

Kayaking professional Michael Bowersox will  explore all these issues and more.  Bring your own repair kit if you like to discuss and debate essential gear.

A child of salt and sun, Michael Bowersox moved from Southern California to Seattle and found his new passion of kayaking in 2007. The call of the salt enabled the transition from Flatwater Sprinting to the exploratory and playful nature of Sea Kayaking, and seasoned with three more years pf salt as a guide and naturalist in the San Juan Islands, Michael turned passion into profession, culminating in moving to Portland to explore the educational side of kayaking with the BCU and Next Adventure. As a responsible paddler should, as Michael has learned to break his toys in dumb ways, he’s learned to maintain and fix them in clever ways.

Come to the October general meeting to learn about the pleasant art of kayak fishing from one of the sport’s leaders, Jason Self.
