  8. Maintenance tips for a PVC glued kayak

    Kayaking | Gear Talk
    What should I do to ensure a long life for a PVC/glued kayak? I picked up two Zoik PVC kayaks, they come with a 5 year warranty and the guys over at (not where I bought it from) said a well maintained kayak of this type should last 12-13 years. I forgot to ask what proper...
