Final Closure: Spring Packraft Series


6th Class in the Spring Packraft Series

Instructor: Bruce Campbell

Building your own packraft?

If you have a new kit, or if you are restarting a kit you started and set aside, this class sequence is intended to include one or all the steps you may need to successfully complete your project. You can learn to heat seal TPU coated fabric, make air-tight seams, as well as the sequence in which the packraft is assembled. Students can choose just the session they need to get started, a session where they last stopped, or the entire six session series. The series is designed to give you the skills to complete a packraft on your own.

Class #6: Final Closure

The wooden forms that help close side panel seams are used differently to fashion the longer, pointed bow and stern seams. This class will help you get started and show you how to leave a half seam that you can reach inside of to close the last seam.

You will also get an experienced set of eyes to look over each of your seams, helping identify areas where you need to further heat seal, prior to adding glue.
