Wanting to Kayak fish for a long time but never got to it.
Then out of nowhere i run into a full carbon fiber Stealth 575 Profisha at a second hand store. Slight damage in the front but nothing that cant be repaired.

Bought it and I am currently busy repairing it.

Thanks bassbug.

So far just layed up carbon fiber by hand with proper epoxy. Sanded it down today and started to paint the front and back a bright neon orange.
