Hello, Great board you have here. I have a problem I am hoping to get some help with. I came across a 1970’s Langford canoe at a yard sale that I believe is cedar and vinyl coated canvas. The vinyl was originally red but was painted with green paint that peeled badly. Nobody wanted the canoe because the paint looked so bad so I purchased it at a great price and began scraping the green paint using heat and a razor blade. I removed a lot of the green paint but could not get it all off without cutting into the vinyl. Where the paint peeled, the red vinyl has faded and there are patches of green paint and white primer that would not come off so the canoe does not look so good. Does anyone have any experience painting a vinyl-coated canoe? Is there an easier way to remove the existing paint? I was going to try sanding the vinyl/painted surface lightly and painting with a good marine grade paint. I would love to hear any ideas. Thank you.
