Hello New to canoes and I have a few questions. I love the look of the old wood canoes. I have found one for sale and at a good price. Or so I am thinking. Anyway it's covered in Verolite and Im just wondering if there is a way to sort of restore it or paint over it to bring back some longevity to the canoe. As is the canoe floats and there are a few scratches that have been patches on it. I'm not really sure what Verolite is and I'm also wondering if maybe a newer modern canoe is something worth getting instead. Please let me know your thoughts on this guys. I'm looking forward to get into canoeing more so any tips and information will help a lot thanks !!
