    Is the procedure the same for composite boats?

    Procedures would be very much the same but you may be using a diffferent type of epoxy mixture. Just cintact the maker of your boat and ask. Cheers greg

    We used Cold Cure Epoxy, West System is another brand, I’m sure that all epoxy could be use in a very similar ways.
    Epoxy would work as well on composite canoe with a similar result of a yellow skid plate, we try to colors match the composite canoe with a polyester base resin to make them look unnoticeable, and yes same process but follow the mixing instruction from the supplier, also only do one end at a time, if your not use to do it, chance are that the chemical will get completely hard before your done.

    How can I determine the risk that skid plates will adversely affect the ability of the canoe to properly track?
