What we're about

Welcome to Kayak and Canoe DIY for the Chicago metro.

This is a do-it-yourself meetup. Learn to inspect, maintain and upgrade a kayak or canoe. Share what works for you, what doesn't work, and where you paddle.

Topics could include scratch treatment, UV protection, seating upgrades, deck line installs, hatch or bulkhead sealing, soft spot correction, and crack repairs.
