Subject: [baidarka] lashing and Snow Seal

Has anyone used plastic cable ties or Tywraps as lashing? I know it would be
faster to assemble. They make a little gun like tool to tension and then
cutoff the excess in one squeez. I know someone will say it has no soul,but
I'll be doing great if I can finnish a project before I loose interest.

How well does Snow-seal work? I think Mr. Brink mentions useing it in his book.
At my harware store I see it comes in a gray primer and a white top coat. Is
it normal to use both? I'm talking about the rubberized plastic paint for
roof coating. I've never used it. I'm wondering if it workes equally well on
nylon cloth (from G. Dyson) or on cotton canvas?

BTW my copy of The Aleutian Kayak just fits perfectly into an old empty
GODIVA chocolates box. It's gold! And it brings an inner smile!
