Currently in the process of purchasing an ultralight kevlar tandem canoe for flatwater paddling and short, 2-3 day leisure tripping (paddle to destination, pitch camp, relax, enjoy day paddles in surrounding water.)
Never having owned this type of canoe before, would appreciate anyone who owns, has owned, or is familiar with these type of boats commenting on:
- the longevity of this type of lay-up
- the durability of " "
- ease of minor repairs - scratches, etc.
- comparison of clear coat to gelcoat in terms of ease of repair
- anything else one might want to know about these
