How to Build a Kevlar Canoe

1st and 2nd Epoxy finish coat

Left canoe is still on the mold (note the ends are not sealed).  Right canoe is just sitting on sawhorses.  We used a roller to apply the epoxy (bottom to top), followed immediately by a sponge brush (along the long axis of the canoe).

 

 

 

 

For one of the canoes, a Kevlar felt strip was applied at the bow and stern for wear resistance.  This picture shows the final coat being applied.
