So have you ever wondered how your kayak was made?   How did this plastic floating creation that that takes me kayak fishing come to be?  Well for most of us our kayaks were created using a process called Rotational Molding.

Rotational molding, also know as Roto Molding or Rotocasting, is made from melting and forming Polyethylene while it is being spun on an axis. Polyethylene is a tough, waxy-textured material that is unaffected by water and many chemicals. It can be repeatedly softened by heating and hardened by cooling.

Check out the two videos below to get a better idea of how it works.
