    Linda's old skin on frame is leaking a little. There are no holes just some wear. Would a couple of coats of varnish be the proper treatment?

    Thanks, Dan

    Hi Jim,

    It was a kit that was assembled by a friend. Linda has had it since the 80's.

    GABOATS.COM is still around. Might be worth an email to them. Do you know what it was originally coated with? Varnish over varnish should be an OK combination. TM..
