Refurbishing a sabot

Hi, I was just given an old sabot from my grandfather and I am planning to refurbish it with my friend and his sabot. It is located at my grandparents cabin so I haven't seen it in a year but i remember it in ok condition. My friend told me all we will need to do is paint them with oil based polyurethane but I want to know what to do if there is a crack. I have access to fiberglass but I dont want to have to do that if it is not necessary. Are there any other things I should know about refurbishing? Sorry I only have minimal details about the boat, but I think it was made in the 70's. Thanks

Check these guys:

They may push you toward stuff they sell as solutions, but they did build a bunch of them.

Assuming it's a wood one (most of that vintage were), there really isn't much to it - just lots of sanding and varnishing.

If there are cracks in the hull, you could probably tape them, but you'd need to see it first.

They are great beginners boats - have fun!
