pakboat - loose connectors

Post by barbarapuffin »

Hi friends,
I have an older Pakboat, a Puffin Saco. Lately, while using my boat, the connectors are popping off. The small black 3/4 circles that snap onto the gunwales pop loose. Has anyone else had this issue? More importantly, has anyone found a solution?

Yes. I find I get precisely this problem with my Puffin. I have wondered whether to drill holes in the bars and thread cable ties through to give a firmer connection, but I haven't gone this route yet. (A combination of not having got organised and a bit of trepidation about taking a drill to the aluminium.) Like you I would be interested to hear how others deal with this.
