I have become the proud owner of a framesless cedar stripped canoe. This elegant craft came into my hands through a relative who had a friend whose father found it abandoned on the roadside in a remote area. Apparently it had bounced off of the pavement causing a couple of longitudinal cracks in the hull. He gave it to an aquaintance that made rather a mess of trying to repair it (his approach being a whole mess of resin over matt with no regard for repairing the wood first). I have limited experience with resin, and have never tried to undo a bad application. Are there any helpfull tricks, or am I simply faced with the task of a lot of carefull chipping, scraping, and sanding down to bare wood (all 1/4" thickness of it).
PS - I will check with a couple of local shops when I get the time, but thought this 'forum' would likely net some usefull stuff, too.
