    Default what is it?

    I haven't been paying attention, what is it they are using?
    I tend to use blue foam rigid insulation and let it hang. Kind of a pain w/ broadheads, but I'm cheap, and I seem to always find chunks of it laying around. Usually I use 3 layers.
    Would be interesting to see somebodies other ideas for a home built target.

    Default Kayak Packaging

    When we order fiberglass sea kayaks from down south, they ship them up here wrapped in about 4 layers of that stuff.

    I dont have any right now or I would hook you up. We will be getting 10 new kayaks in this spring so If you haven't found some by then let me know. We can't recycle that stuff so its a good way to keep it out of the landfills. I have made one myself and it works really well.

    In the meantime, check with some of the outfits in Anchorage that sell kayaks and they might be able to help you out.
