Flaking clear coat on bottom of board
« on: December 30, 2016, 10:51:24 AM »
I am looking to trade an old kayak for an SUP with a guy on CL. He sent some pics and the bottom deck worries me. i havent seen it in person yet so only relying on pics. There is wax in the one pic that has spots all over it.  Any thoughts?

Clinto-
Those would not be show-stoppers for me if the rest of the deal was good.
I am not a 'spit and polish' person, more like 'deburr and implement'.
Get the wax off, sand, spray a couple coats of rattle can clear, enjoy.

It looks like water is getting at the pine in that top picture which will get worse. It will have to be patched.

I definitely plan of some ding repair and maintenance on this one. It had a deck repair and needs a new traction pad as well. But for a beater board thats not costing me anything i figured a project is something i can handle. I just dont want to take on a cancerous glass job. The guy said hes had it for a year and the flaking hasnt progressed at all. I never use the kayak and i inherited from a friend so might as well. Anyone ever heard of "Justin Guernsey" shapes? I cant find anything on it.

Jrandy... i have not been able to get around to starting my own yet due to a house addition that we just finished. That will be for 2017 hopefully and i want to start small like everyone recommended. Maybe even a hand plane out of one of my old busted boards outback.
