Glass Scrape Repair

Post by Kap » Sun Jan 14, 2018 5:54 am

Being careless with moving the canoe, I rubbed the outside hull somehow. I thought the rub was just on the exterior and re-coated epoxy. Marks are still there. Is there a fix for this before I varnish? A little help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Also looking for a supplier of Babiche for the seats. Any links?

I'd live with it ! Battle Scars.
Out side of sanding it down to the wood, and patching, I don't think you can make it go away.

I use 1/2" Nylon Snow shoe cord for my seats. From these guys

The Nylon will probably out last the canoe !

Keep your paddle wet and your seat dry!

I figured as much, Jim. Not real happy with myself on that one.
Thanks for the link.
Nice seats.
