Vintage Folbot Kayak White Deck Splash / Shell Skin

I found this kayak deck splash shell skin at an estate sale in Dallas. The person that had it purchased an old Folbot kayak kit many years ago. He started working on the kayak but never finished the project. He sold the wooden frame to a restaurant to hang from the ceiling as a decoration. I bought the rest of the accessories. They are all original and have never been used. There was the blue hull skin, a brown hull skin and a white deck skin. I am assuming that they are all vintage (NOS) Folbot parts. There were old Folbot instruction manuals and lots of parts. I will be listing these items soon. They include a rudder tiller, paddles, and miscellaneous hardware.
I have attempted to describe the item to the best of my ability. If I have misidentified this item please let me know. The owner is no longer around so I was not able to ask him about the items. He had a nice workshop and seemed to have a strong interest in vintage kayaks.

White Deck Shell/ Skin Dimensions (Approximate):
Length: 15 feet 10 inches
Width: 45 inches in the middle

The skin was stored in a workshop. There are a few brown spots on the outer edge of the skin in the upper right section. The biggest spot extends approximately 2.5 inches from the edge. They may not be visible once you tack the edges to the kayak. They may come out if treated. I made no attempt to remove the stain. This is not my area of expertise so I am not sure if these spots will be an issue. I can send more photos of this area.
This area must have got wet in the past.

Please review photos for details
