Kayak to refinish

My son wants to get back into kayaking...I told him he could have one of the two kayaks I built, that have been stored in the shop attic for ten years or so. The natural wood finish has faded and it has some wear and tear, so he has decided to refinish and paint this time. So far he has completely cleaned and sanded the hull. We will do a few minor repairs then primer. The shop is a mess and needs a good cleaning first.

Thanks.....Fishing from the kayak was the most fun I've ever had.
Have I ever mentioned the 50 lb'er I had in my hands that got away?
That was a long time ago but I remember the whole sorry event.
Took the kayaks out last week for a short paddle...my shoulder pain kept me awake most of the night.

Keel area at the stern was worn through from dragging the kayak up onto rocky beaches. Epoxied some 17 oz biaxial cloth over the spot.
Biaxial is great because the threads run at 45 degree angle to the joint making it stronger.
The weave will get filled and sanded smooth before primer goes on.
