    If its a wood hull you can just use Poly resin with or without fiberglass cloth or epoxy resin with or without fiberglass cloth . After that you sand it smooth and you can put on a coat of polyuretene (spelling) to bring back the shine .

    If weight is a factor here ... and you are not wanting to add the extra weight from the resins ( and or cloth ) .... simply use a good primer ( I use Rustoleum brown primer ) and a good auto shaker can paint ( like DUPLO COLOR )
    Any engine paints also work good .
    \"experienced \" is just another way of saying that you already did all the mess ups and should know better now !
