84 mad river explorer

How do I tell what layup my 84 Mad River Explorer is? Fiberglass or kevlar?

Look on the inside. Kevlar is usually a gold looking weave with no paint on it.

The inside is grey so…Fiberglass must be. It needs the wood replaced but for the price I couldn’t pass it up. Is there a good place to buy replacement wood?

Or your local woodworkers lumber yard that might carry 18’ + lengths of clear ash.

Fiberglass boat. If you can get the right gunwales replacing them is no big deal. Some have bevels and rabbet cuts in them so you need a good table saw to make them from white ash stock.

Thanks I appreciate all the help.
