I wouldn't have bought this junk had I known. Although you can't see it from this picture, if you look at the boat in a certain light or from a certain angle, you can see the imperfections in the wood even though it's glassed. It looks like a damn washboard.
I like the red and plan on putting a white water line on it but now am wondering if a different color might hide the flaws in the sides, i.e. lighter, white, darker etc?????????
I may just decide to make it go splash and live with it until it needs repainting also.
