I have an Old Town Royalex canoe and tried to lightly buff to attempt to restore some “gloss” to the hull to no avail.
I have a pair of patches front and rear from use. I’m frankly not that concerned with the cosmetics but I happen to have a quart of oil based Rustoleum left over from a furniture job.
Any downside to painting the hull outside of a few ounces. The canoe is not rare or collectible so I’m not worried about hurting resale value but I thought it might look nice.
I have a new set of Ed’s Canoes seats coming in Wednesday…may look odd on the drab old green body.
