I was given this old beautiful old Kayak and I am clueless about refurbishing it or what its value may be. From my brief research, I believe it is made from Cedar strips. I removed the Fiberglas laminate(if that would be the correct term) and I am in the process of sanding then I want to just apply several coats of lacquer. I do not want to depreciate the value of it and I am curious if I should apply the fiberglass laminate first. If I just go ahead and apply the lacquer can I then apply the Fiberglass later? Ultimately I would like to just sell it as a decoration in a lodge or rafting company and that would mean that I don't need the Fiberglass laminate. Any suggestions about how to estimate the year built, value and restoration methods would be of great help. If anyone is interested in buying it, this just let me know. Pictures are attached to this post. Thanks for any advice! Robert V.
