Seat Making: Spring Packraft Series


4th 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 #4: Seat Making

Students will bring partially completed kits to class for expert review and assistance. The class will also focus on building the seat. The DIY seat is the standard now in use by the the best store-bought packraft providers. The height and volume of the seat are critical to your paddling efficiency.
