Subject: [baidarka] Baidarka floatation and stuff

I would like to learn what would be recommended for
internal floatation for our Dyson 5.60 Baidarka?

Would solid foam block be recommended, or dual gear
floatation storage bags, or bags of foam peanut
chips, or discarded wine bags?

Secondly, would a pully system be recommended for
gear storage over a push pull hook stick? If so
what are some of the pully methods employed?

Thirdly, for deck fittings and lashing what is
regarded as the best method for securing bungie cords
and tie downs? Someone mentioned the use of s hooks
secured underneath (especially for rigging sail lines)

Your help is most appreciated.

Best Regards,

Philip Wylie
