HDPE Deck Platehdpe-folding-kayak-deck-plate-01

If a coaming baseplate is used, an HDPE deckplate allows the skin to fit smoothly over the baseplate while skinning the deck. The 18″ plate is made of 1/2″ HDPE and tapers from 3/4″ at the coaming to 1/8″ at the other end. The plate is drilled, countersunk, and attached with three stainless self tapping screws. If no coaming base plate is used, the HDPE deck plate is not required.
