Fiberglass Repair

Hello all,

I need to do a bit of fiberglass repair to my wooden kayak paddle and my old damaged squirt boat. Problem is that I know just enough about glass work to be dangerous. That said, can anyone out there tell me what kind of fiberglass stuff I'm supposed to use and where I can buy it? I'm assuming I don't use the same stuff you get at Checker. Also, does anyone know if there are handy instructional books on this sort of thing (I'm thinking of the Idiot's Guide or Time-Life variety)?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Clean surface, add a thin coat of resin..Place fiberglass, add resin, smooth with syran wrap and let dry. If its not quite smooth enough which it usually isn't, sand finish. Add more resin repeat until strong enough and super smooth. Patience....
