I have got an old kayak from a friend of mine who no longer needs it. As he told me, there are 3 leaks in that Kayak, one of them is very visible being a coin-sized hole (:D). The others are pretty minor.
I, as a total rookie in kayaking and other water sports, do understand that using such a Kayak is something that rings the warning bell, but on a side note, I'll be keen to know what I can do to fix up those leaks?
P.S: Though shallow waters are not supposed to be taken for granted as Safe, I would try and use it for fun around the waters that I know. I do not intend to use them for extreme situations.
