    Adding YakAttack NiteStripe to your Kayak
    adds visibility and safety in low light conditions
    and looks cool as well...Bonus !
    The strip can be added to your paddle as well.

    Materials needed to get started:

    Denatured Alcohol
    clean rag
    knife or scissors
    old credit card or plastic putty card
    YakAttack NiteStripe in your color choice

    I decided to use the kayaks mold seam running along the side.
    Clean with alcohol to remove mold release,slime,oil and dirt .
    This allows the NiteStripe to stick better. I rounded teh edge
    of stripe to prevent the corners from peeling.

    Sticking the stripe in one foot increments makes for a straighter line.
    Smooth the stripe with the card to remove any air bubbles trapped
    under the stripe.
    Cut the ends in a radius to prevent the edges from lifting.
    Cleaning the surface with alcohol is good for decals too.

    That is all . . .
