Just picked up a Wenonah Solo Plus for a song-and-dance as my first canoe (that I’ve owned, not ever been in!). There’s no physical damage to the hull, but it’s been sitting out in the New York winters for a few years without use. It’s covered in hairline cracks in the gel-coat and my plan was to just redo it with a Wenonah gel-coat repair kit, but seeing as I have never done this I thought it might be smart to check with the community. Any thoughts?
Also, there are a couple spots that look like holes (light shines through stronger) but there isn’t any visible damage. We’re talking holes about a centimeter or less in diameter - how should something like that be handled? Just fill it with marine epoxy?
Thanks! Happy to be part of the community!
Don’t mind the denim seats - I am replacing all of the seats and thwarts!
