does anyone have experience repairing damage to a canoe? trying to assess if i can handle this myself.
i have a 30+ year old canoe from Stowe Canoe Company. The hull is primarily kevlar with a gel coat outer layer. the kevlar is intact; the gel coat is chipped, about the size of my hand, with a spider crack that extends outward 12-18 inches.
i have watched some online videos about gel coat repairs but am wondering if anyone has advice, hands-on experience. looks to me like a pint of gelcoat, pigment to kind of match the green color, sandpaper, gloves, safety glasses and a mask would do the job (have various grit sandpaper, a sanding block, and orbital palm sander).
