How to install footrests in your Viking Espri kayak
(For Pre 2013 model espri please use "How to install footrests in a small kayak guide”)
Find marks for front and rear screws inside the foot well area of kayak,
They are small raised "dots" on the kayak surface mark these with a permanent marker
Using the self-tapping screw provided install the rear most screw,
Make sure this is going through the pre-drilled hole at the rear end of the footrest.
Now line up the front hole in footrest with the front screw mark on kayak,
note there maybe more than one pre-drilled hole at the front of the footrest
so use the hole that lines up with the raised area or rib in the footwell area
Install self-tapping screw.
Install middle screw, this needs to be screwed into the
raised area or rib in the footwell area
Repeat steps 1-4 on the opposite side of kayak
