Maybe this is a dumb question... I built my CH17LT last spring and paddled it all summer... Hard. Great boat in all aspects.
I am not refinishing it. Does it need it? Not from the wear and tear, but more from my rushing to get done last March.
When I finished the boat I did not glas the combing. I just stained it and put epoxy and varnish over the combing. It looked great and wore okay. I did notice the epoxy/varnish wearing where I rest my paddle across the combing. Not into the wood mind you. Are you suppose to glass the combing?
