I was curious if anyone here has any experience drilling holes, or cutting openings in the Tegris kayak?

Only reason I ask, is I'm not even a kayak owner, but rather I want to make a certain type of product out of Tegris itself...and I wanted to hear first account of anyone who's had to drill holes in it...for example does it cut easy?

Did it get too hot and melt the Tegris around the hole?

Any problems that arised from it?

 

Thanks so much,

Josh

The material as it was formed for the kayak drills nicely with almost no fraying of the hole edge or backside of the hole. Cutting ideally should be done at slow speeds with a fine hand saw blade or a jig saw at low speed and fine cut settings. Tools like a dremmel rotate too fast and will overheat the material similar to the effect on poly materials and they lack low end torque to cut at slow enough speeds.

I only ever drilled two little holes to mount a clam style paddle holder. Had no problems.
