I'm with Frank, built two kayaks, never finished sanding the drips out of the hull, varnished the deck of one. Just to see, I masked off approximately one inch onto the deck and down from the sheer. I wanted to cover the nail heads. Tapered the masking slightly as I approached the ends. Painted a red stripe, them did the coaming to match. Everything else is just epoxy. They sure are fun to paddle, look great, get really close to wadeing birds, fish, beaver, etc. Start a conversation every time I stop in a gas station, parking lot, park, campground and especially launch site. I've even gotten a few beers in exchange for information. Never really minded bragging anyway.
happy paddling. Ed
