Q: I picked up some ac­ces­sories in the States but the bolts de­te­ri­o­rated quickly. How do I avoid this in the fu­ture?

GR says: The ma­jor­ity of our kayak fish­ing is on salt­wa­ter, but in Amer­ica there are many fresh­wa­ter an­glers. Some of their gear and prod­ucts may be suit­able for fresh­wa­ter but not for cor­ro­sive salt.

When mak­ing al­ter­ations to your kayak make sure that any parts and hard­ware you use are of marine grade. In par­tic­u­lar, pay at­ten­tion to any riv­ets, bolts or screws that you in­tend us­ing. This will en­sure the longevity of your in­stal­la­tion and that it will be suit­able for use in salt and fresh­wa­ter.
