    Hi I am thinking of restoring a twelve foot glass davidson sail dingy . It looks like it will cost about three thousand dollars to finish the wood work. Is it worth it? I don’t know how much these boards are worth. It I would like to sail it. It has been left un sailed for about fifteen years.

      Last Davidson that I did which was new gunwales, deck, and some knees did not coast that much, but maybe yours needs more. The name Davidson holds some value, especially around the Vancouver area as that is where they were made. It will always depend on how much sentimental value the boat has for you and how much you are wiling to spend.

    I removed all the glass and epoxy on my 18 ft kayak due to cracking, any estimate on reglassing?
