I have acquired a MR Explorer in Royalex for what I feel is a VERY reasonable price. It has been well used and has many scratches and a couple of small dents. Both ends (stems?) have been repaired where one would install skid plates and the repairs seem solid and reasonably well done; the interior of the boat has not been compromised. Virtually all the woodwork is trashed and in need of replacement. As the boat seems very straight, my plan is to replace the gunwales and use it as a river boat as it should take more abuse than my Kevlar Explorer. I am leaning towards vinyl gunwales for cost, need of maintenance and ease of install. I thought that I read somewhere that the Old Town vinyl gunwales will fit the MR royalex boats but I am unable to refind that article, can anyone confirm this?
Thanks much.

Disregard this post, I lucked out and found vinyl gunwales and decks locally and will be undertaking this task when weather permits.
