  Hull May Be Epoxy Coated
  Posted by: vk1nf on Sep-23-12 10:01 PM (EST)

The VOLKSKAYAKs I build and paddle are usually just seam taped, but the hull and deck receive multiple coats of epoxy resin without any cloth. With routine maintenance, my first VK is now 11 years old, and in excellent condition.

If the hull was epoxy coated, but not painted, the epoxy may have broken down due to UV exposure.
