I'm getting closer to finishing my restoration of an old kevlar canoe -

my question is - there was a thin brown paint applied to the inside of the canoe, I have done some epoxy work and replaced the ribs (there were five ribs and I've added a sixth), I'd like to paint the interior again to clean it up but don't want to add much weight and want to ensure that it will be durable. Any suggestions on what to use (or any idea of what was used)?

Thanks in advance....

I think your best bet is either and epoxy paint or a two part polyurethane pain. Paints are vastly superior to pigmented resins as they have better pigments and cover better with lower weight gain.

If it were me I would rent a small sandblaster and give the boat a quick once over using walnut shells instead of paint. DO NOT LINGER on any one spot though. Just a fast brush over and you should get super adhesion.
